Red Bull Salzburg will be hoping to cause an upset when they welcome Olympique Marseille to the Red Bull Arena on Thursday night for the second leg of their Uefa Europa League semi-final.

Having been on a fairytale run in this competition so far, knocking out Borussia Dortmund and Lazio on their way to the last four, Die Rotten Bullen will be looking to overturn their 2-0 first leg deficit away from home.

The Austrian side ran out 1-0 winners when they hosted the French outfit back in late September. In this fixture, Bet365 offers them at odds of (2.10) as slight favourites to secure a vital win.

Rudi Garcia’s charges were inspired to a 2-0 victory over the visitors in the first leg of this tie at the Stade Velodrome. Despite their home advantage, they enter into this contest as a slight underdog at (3.60) considering their uninspiring away matches.

A no winner, no vanquish state at the end of 90 minutes is chalked up at a juicy (3.70).

The Olympians are undefeated in their last five games across all competitions. While their form on the road has not been impressive in this contest, claiming just one win in their last eight away fixtures. They can still be backed to avoid defeat at (1.75) which will see them through.

Two of both sides’ last three clashes has seen the first 45 minutes end in a stalemate. A chunky (2.25) is offered by the bookmakers to see the same outcome pay off in Salzburg.

All the away losses suffered by Garcia’s men ended 1-0, including the reverse fixture in Austria during the group stage. Therefore, it will be rewarding to back a correct score prediction of 1-0 at a whopping (9.00).

Florian Thauvin’s strike in the first leg of this duel took his tally to 24 in all competitive outings, and the French international is tipped  to find the back of the net anytime at (2.40).

In all of the previous meetings between these two teams, two or fewer goals have been scored. Therefore, it won’t be out of place to see such result surface in this tight affair at odds of (2.10) with Bet365.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
