Olympique Marseille vs Lazio
Olympique Marseille didn’t start their participation in the competition in the best way possible. They have won just one point in the two games played – during the 2-2 draw with Apollon. Before this, the French team started its campaign with a disappointing 1-2 loss at home against Eintracht Frankfurt.
Marseille travelled to Levkosia with the thought of winning Apollon, but it didn’t happen like this. The French club had an advantage of two goals in the game, thanks to the strikes of Dimitri Payet and Luiz Gustavo. But in the last 15 minutes, Marseille conceded two goals and lost two points. Now their situation in the group is not easy at all. They really need to win some points as soon as possible.
But it won’t be easy against Lazio. The Italians are currently 2nd in the group with 3 points. They started their campaign with a 2-1 win over Apollon at home, but after this, they suffered a heavy 1-4 loss against Eintracht in Frankfurt. Marco Parolo scored for Simone Inzaghi’s team, but in general, it was a very bad night for the Eagles. Inzaghi put on the pitch some of his best players, but this didn’t help his team that much.
Now we shall expect a thrilling game between Olympique Marseille and Lazio at the Stade Velodrome. These two teams are in a serious need of points at the moment, so we shall see them both in an attacking mood on Thursday night. These two teams were regarded as favourites in this group, but everything started a little bit different for them.
