French “Marseille” will meet at home with Turkish “Galatasaray” in the second round of the group stage of the Europa League. The match will take place on September 30 in Marseille.
In the first round, Marseille drew with Lokomotiv (1: 1). An offensive result for the French, who had excellent matches and conceded after, in fact, the only dangerous moment at their goal. Here they clearly deserved more.
A few days ago, Marseille suffered their first defeat this season. Jorge Sampaoli’s team lost at home to Lance (2: 3). The Provençals first bounced back from 0: 2, but in the second half they still allowed the opponent to snatch the victory.
Before that, “Marseille” had a series of seven matches without defeat. And here, first of all, I remember the confident victories over Monaco and Rennes. There is a feeling that Sampaoli still managed to bring the team to a new level.
Marseille have scored nine goals in four home games.
Meanwhile, Galatasaray unexpectedly beat Lazio in the first round. The meeting in Istanbul ended with a score of 1:0.
Shortly thereafter, Fatih Terim’s team lost twice in the Turkish championship. Galatasaray lost to Alanyaspor and Kayserispor without scoring a single goal.
Before the trip to France , Galatasaray won a home win over Geztepe (2: 1).
Galatasaray have not conceded a goal in only one of seven away matches. It was a meeting with the outsider of the Turkish championship “Giresunspor”.
