A place in the Europa League last 16 will be at stake when Shakhtar Donetsk and Olympique Marseille face each other in an eagerly-awaited two-legged tie. The Miners have not been in action since December 8. 2023 and, no doubt, they face a tough challenge against the Ligue 1 outfit. As the game will be played on the neutral location, home win should not be considered.

OM, on the other hand, failed to win the previous five league matches. Chancel Mbemba is a major doubt after returning recently from international duty, while all Nadir, Rongier, and Ruiz are out of contention with injuries. Anyhow, the share of spoils is on the cards in the first leg as Marseille do not seem to be at the top of their game. In their last meeting in the Europa League, back in 2009, Shakhtar Donetsk defeated Olympique Marseille in the double-header.

Prediction: 1-1 (draw)

Shakhtar

"Shakhtar had a good group stage in the Champions League, where they managed to finish third in the standings. In six rounds, the Pitmen earned nine points, while their opponents were Barcelona, Porto and Antwerp. So, there is no doubt that the team will make a splash in the Europa League play-offs. We note that it has not played any official matches since December 13, 2023 - only friendlies. In eight of them, Shakhtar won three, drew three and lost twice.

Marseille

"Marseille" did not show great results at the group stage of the Europa League, but still can consider it a success - after all, in the playoffs managed to go. Another thing is that in the quartet with Brighton, exsanguinated Ajax and AEK, the Provençals took second place, losing the first place to the Seagulls. And recently they have serious problems - Marseille can not win for five matches, and after 0:1 in the derby with Lyon played a draw with a modest Metz (1:1).
