The Austrian side have performed extremely well to get this far in the tournament but they may have bitten off more than they can chew. Marseille completed a routine victory in the first leg, seeing off the Austrian side in a 2-0 win. However, Red Bull Salzburg will be playing on their own turf in this fixture and they have performed extremely domestically, sitting top of the Austrian Premier League.

A key player for Marseille will be ex-West Ham United playmaker, Dimtri Payet – who you’d expect to play a big role in this fixture. The French side are currently unbeaten in six games and showed their ruthless quality as they dismantled Salzburg’s partner club, RB Leipzig. Therefore, with a two-goal advantage over the Austrian side already, it seems that Marseille have already booked their place in the final against either Arsenal or Atletico.

Team News

Red Bull Salzburg have a fully fit squad for this fixture.

Goalkeeper Steve Mandanda of Marseille will not feature due to a torn muscle.
