Olympique Marseille v Eintracht Frankfurt: Should we expect goals?

21:29, 21 Sep 2018

Last season's Europa League finalists Olympique Marseille will kickstart their Group G campaign against Eintracht Frankfurt at the Stade Velodrome on Thursday 20, 2018.

Marseille will be looking to take their wonderful form in the domestic league to Thursday's crunch Europa League match. After 5 games in Ligue 1, Marseille has won three matches and drawn twice to sit second in the league standings going into this fixture. On the other hand, Eintracht has not had the best of starts to their league campaign. After winning their first game away to Freiburg, The Eagles have lost twice in a row, including a 3-1 defeat away to Dortmund last Friday.

If they are to get out of a group which also consist of Italian powerhouse Lazio, Eintracht Frankfurt must be at their best this Thursday. However, Marseille are hot favorites to win this game after thrashing Guingamp 4-0 last weekend. After scoring a wonder goal recently, Dimitri Payet will be hoping that he can continue his goal-scoring streak against the Germans in Europe. All we can see is goals on Thursday as Marseille aim to go one step better than last season.
