        Marseille vs. AEK Athens Prediction, Tips & Stats

        Group B in the Europa League sees Marseille take on AEK Athens in an intriguing encounter.

        Marseille currently sit 2nd in Group B with two draws from their first two games of the campaign.

        The French side began with a 3-3 draw away at Ajax before being held to a 2-2 draw at home to Brighton & Hove Albion.

        The draw with Brighton was a frustrating one for Marseille given they found themselves 2-0 up in a dominant first half only to let the lead slip and sacrifice two much-needed points.

        It's been a poor season on the whole for Marseille who find themselves just 8th in Ligue 1, and despite making a managerial change only a month into the season things have still not improved under the guidance on Gennaro Gattuso.

        They're entering this game amidst a very poor run of form having won one, drawn one and lost three of their last five games in all competitions, the most recent of which was a 1-0 loss in Nice at the weekend.

        Gattuso has had just four games in charge so far - resulting in one win, one draw and two losses - so it's too early to judge, but it feels as though it's going to have to take something monumental to get this group performing consistently.

        A win here would do wonders for the mood around the club but it won't come easily against a very organised, well-drilled side.

        AEK Athens currently sit top of Group B with one win and one draw from the first two games of their campaign.

        It's been a strong start to this season's Europa League for the Greek side who'll feel very well placed to claim a top two spot at the end of proceedings given they've already registered a win.

        They will, though, have been disappointed to have only claimed a point at home to Ajax in a 1-1 draw in their last game in this competition given how vulnerable the Dutch side have been. Nevertheless, a win here would make that water under the bridge and given their performance away at Brighton on the opening night they'll feel more than confident of claiming a result here.

        AEK are coming into this game in very good form having won three, drawn one and lost one of their last five games - having also won their last two on the bounce both by 3-0 scorelines - so they know they're in good shape ahead of this one.

        For our Marseille vs. AEK prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for the home side.

        Marseille Team News

        Jonathan Clauss and Pau López both left the pitch injured at the weekend and will therefore miss out here, with Amir Murillo and Rubén Blanco set to deputise for the pair.

        Both Samuel Gigot and Joaquín Correa are doubts for this one while Pape Gueye is unavailable through suspension so the French side have some significant absences to deal with.

        AEK Team News

        Despite playing at the weekend Stavros Pilios, Konstantinos Chrysopoulos, Alexander Callens, Zini and Tom van Weert were not named in AEK's Europa League squad prior to the start of the tournament so all are ineligible for this one.

        Nordin Amrabat, Gerasimos Mitoglou and Djibril Sidibe are all expected to return to the starting lineup here.
