Leipzig vs Marseille

Leipzig managed to walk away with a three pointer last weekend as the side visited Hannover and have celebrated a 3:2 victory. Only goal in the first halftime came in sixteenth minute via Forsberg.
However, the second halftime got much more open but with the visiting side once again finding themselves in control. They doubled up the lead in 54th via Orban, while the hosts replied via Sane and Fullkrug, but Poulsen make it easier for Leipzig in between.
Overall, it was a deserved victory for Leipzig who need to be thankful to their efficient in that clash. The side is now at fourth position with just a point more than out of Champions League placed Leverkusen and will still long way to go.
Home side should be playing in a version of 4-4-2 formation with Poulsen and Werner as forwards. Central defender Willi Orban (22/3) is suspended for this clash, while left back Marcel Halstenberg (15/2) and defensive midfielder Stefan Ilsanker (16/0) remain injured. Forward Ademola Lookman (5/1) is not available to play here.

Marseille, on the other side, is coming into this match after a 1:3 victory away from home against Dijon last Saturday afternoon. They were the first ones to take the lead, in 36th minute with a goal from Germain, but continued being slightly better in second too.
The game wasn’t that interesting but both teams were quite efficient when speaking about goals with the hosts leveling up in 73rd via Chang-Hoon. Guests managed to deservedly take all three points thank to goals from Ocampos and Payet in last few minutes of the game.
The side now stands at third position with five points less than second placed Monaco and two more than fourth and out of Champions League placed Lyon.
Guests are set to play in 4-2-3-1 formation, using Germain as central striker. Offensive midfielders should be Payet, Lopez and Ocampos. Three players are doubtful for this clash: goalkeeper Steve Mandanda (28/0), defender Gregory Sertic (5/0) and offensive midfielder Florian Thauvin (29/16).
Leipzig is a favorite in this one and no doubt that they will try to get a victory. However, Marseille remains with quite strong attacking potential and I definitely see the French side scoring here as well. This would definitely be my first betting choice.
