Marseille will have been frustrated by failing to secure an away goal when going down 1-0 at RB Leipzig in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final tie.
However, we thought the French outfit were the better team for large parts of that contest and feel they are capable of turning things around on home turf.
Punters can get 3/1 for Les Phoceens to go through and that is tempting enough to feature in our Marseille vs RB Leipzig betting predictions.
A Look At Olympique de Marseille’s Betting Odds
Marseille created enough chances in Germany to come away with something and went closest to striking when Bouna Sarr’s effort struck the crossbar.
Rudi Garcia’s side continued to press in the second half and almost levelled through in-form midfielders Lucas Ocampos and Dimitri Payet.
Ocampos failed to find a finish worthy of Zambo Anguissa’s instinctive back-heel, then Payet blazed over having cut into the penalty area.
Marseille missed top scorer Florian Thauvin due to a hamstring injury but clearly have the attacking talent to trouble Leipzig.
A Look At Red Bull Leipzig’s Betting Odds
Leipzig went into the opening encounter in fine spirits after knocking out Napoli and Zenit, as well as beating Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga last month.
They were content to soak up pressure and try to hit Marseille on the break and, to be fair, do have the players to suit that style.
Timo Werner benefited from some poor goalkeeping by Yohann Pele when putting his side ahead in first-half injury time.
The Germany international had netted in the two previous rounds and that domestic triumph over Bayern, though, so he has to be feared, along with Sweden star Emil Forsberg and Liverpool-bound Naby Keita.
However, European rookies Leipzig looked vulnerable on the road during their Champions League group, losing by two clear goals at Besiktas and Porto.
We’re finishing off our Marseille vs RB Leipzig betting tips by taking 37/2 for a 3-1 home win.
