Marseille are unbeaten so far in the Europa League this term

Marseille have been a big disappointment in Ligue 1 this season, currently struggling at the 12th spot but they are currently at the top of their Europa League group that includes Ajax, Brighton and Athens. Marseille are inches away from securing their place in the next round with an unbeaten record on their back. They will be hoping to continue their good run in Europa League and a win against Ajax will ensure their place in the next round.

Ajax’s struggles this season have been one of Europe’s biggest stories. At one point, they were in the relegation zone of the Eredivisie. Although they are currently 8th in their league, they have not yet found their rhythm in the Europa League. They are bottom spot with zero wins. Ajax will be looking to play freely in their match with no hope of progressing to the next round.

Kick-Off:

Friday, 1 December 2023 at (1:30 AM IST)

Location: Stade Orange Velodrome, Marseille 

Form:

Marseille (in all competitions): W-D-W-L-D

Ajax (in all competitions): W-W-L-D-W

Player to Watch

Ismaila Sarr (Marseille)

Ismaila Sarr arrived at Marseille with a huge reputation from Watford but hasn’t been able to achieve his full potential. He has scored three goals for them and has been their top scorer in the league. Sarr may not be in his best form, but he holds Marseille’s attack together. His partnership upfront with Aubameyang is likely to decide the fate of this game for Marseille.

Steven Bergwijn (Ajax)

While Ajax seemed set to sink this season, Steven Bergwijn has managed to pull his team back on track. In addition to the six goals Bergwijn has scored for them, the leadership he brings to the young Ajax squad is immeasurable. He is the reason Ajax are currently 8th in the league.

Match Prediction for Marseille vs Ajax

Marseille have been pretty solid so far in all four matches and will look to continue the same run. Marseille may adopt a safer approach now that qualification hangs in the balance since Ajax started the season poorly but has found some momentum lately. The game hangs in balance and we can again expect a stalemate.

Prediction: Marseille 0-0 Ajax
