Salzburg vs Marseille
2nd leg of the SFs in Europa League between Salzburg and Marseille.
Salzburg and Marseille were in the same group this year and Salzburg got a win at home 1:0, while as quests they got a goalless draw. In the first semifinal match the situation was totally different and Marseille got a great result without conceding a goal at home (2:0). For those who watched the game it was obvious the result didn't represent what really happened on the pitch. Marseille got the lead atfer a goal by Thauvin, but it was after a deflection in his hand. Salzburg also appeal for a penatly in the start of the 2nd half and maybe it was fair to receive it, but the referee skipped the situation. In the last fifteen minutes Salzburg tried to score one goal to have better chances for the 2nd leg in Austria after they were down by 2:0, but only hit the post. Luck was not on their side for sure and the referee made some huge mistakes in favour of Marseille. Maybe some other referees will also skip the situation with the penalty, but please, the hand when Thauvin hit the ball with his head was so obvious. I was shocked when I saw the referee said the goal will be counted..
Salzburg was almost in the same position against Lazio losing the first match 4:2, but then they beat them 4:1 in Austria after a brilliant comeback. The team don't have any problems with injured players or suspended, while Marseille will be without Mandanda and Kamara and Sakai are doubtful. Both teams rested some of their main players during the weekend matches they had and they will be with fresh starting line-ups.
I expect goals here and two are my main picks- Salzburg to score first in the match and also Salzburg to win.
