Marseille vs LazioUEFA Europa League, KO: 20:00 Nov 4, 2021, Orange Velodrome
Marseille are still seeking their first win in the UEFA Europa League as they host Lazio in a match day four fixture in Group E. Both teams are struggling to find their best form at the moment and look evenly matched heading into Thursday’s clash.
The Europa League has not gone according to plan for Marseille, who are still winless after three matches. They have drawn all three of their fixtures in the competition, including a 0-0 scoreline last time out against Lazio.
Marseille have generally struggled to find their best form this season and are in danger of crashing out of the Europa League. The French giants sit third in Ligue 1 after only just ending a run of three straight draws with a 1-0 victory over Clermont last Sunday.
Jorge Sampaoli’s men have also struggled at home, claiming just one win in their last four matches at the Orange Velodrome with two draws in that run.
Lazio have fared only slightly better than Marseille in the Europa League and sit just one point above the French side in Group E after claiming one win from three matches. They will be disappointed not to have won the reverse fixture with Ciro Immobile rattling the woodwork and also having a goal narrowly ruled offside.
The Italians have also had an erratic campaign this season and are currently down in sixth in Serie A. Maurizio Sarri’s men travel to Marseille off the back of a 2-2 draw with Atalanta in their previous domestic fixture.
How the bookies view it
Head to head
Lazio have a 2-1 edge with two draws from five previous matches against Marseille. Both teams battled to a 0-0 draw in the reverse fixture in October.
Players to watch
Although he has looked slightly off colour lately, Dimitri Payet still remains the biggest attacking threat for Marseille. The French team’s performance is often dependent on how the midfielder is playing and he could be worth considering to score anytime at 49/20 with Unibet.
Lazio striker Ciro Immobile was unlucky not to have gotten on the score sheet in the first meeting with Marseille after hitting the woodwork and seeing a goal ruled out. He remains the biggest goal threat for the Serie A side and is priced at 19/12 by SBK to find the net on Thursday.
Anything else catch the eye
Marseille have been held at the break in three of their last four matches, so a halftime draw could also be on the cards at 6/5 with bet365.
