Olympique de Marseille is hosting Feyenoord at Orange Velodrome in the second leg of the UEFA Conference League semifinals. Marseille is on a 2-game losing streak right now, but they are still scoring goals, and they are still a good team. Feyenoord has been involved in some high-scoring games as of late, especially in the Conference League, and they are good enough to qualify for the finals.

In their last 2 games, Marseille has 2 losses, they have conceded 6 goals, while they have scored only 2 goals. Their latest game in Ligue 1 was especially bad, and Marseille has lost to Lyon 0-3 at home. In the Ligue 1 standings, Marseille is still in second place with 65 points, but that spot is in danger, and with that, the Champions League is in danger for Marseille as well. In the first leg of this matchup, Marseille has lost 3-2, but they were able to score those 2 goals, and that will certainly be very helpful. Milik is the leading goalscorer for Marseille in the Conference League with 4 goals, while Payet has added 3 goals and 3 assists. Overall, I would call this season a success for Marseille, I think they are still a good team, but we will see if they can get a win here to qualify for the finals.

Feyenoord is in excellent form right now, they are on a nice 5-game winning streak, while they haven’t lost any of their last 8 games. In the Eredivisie, Feyenoord is in 3rd place, which is the Conference League qualifications spot, but if they win it this season, they will automatically qualify for the Europa League. There are 3 more games to be played in the Eredivisie, and Feyenoord still has a chance to get to 2nd place, theoretically at least. Feyenoord has been scoring a ton of goals in the Conference League this season, and Dessers is the leading goalscorer for them with 10 goals, while Sinisterra has added 6 goals and 4 assists. With the form they are in right now, Feyenoord will be a huge threat to Marseille in this game, and they have already proved they can score goals, but their defense is not that good. Feyenoord is conceding goals, and that is something they will need to reduce to a minimum in this game.

I think we can expect another great game between these two teams here, and I think we can expect goals. Marseille has to attack, and that might leave them open to Feyenoord’s counterattacks.
