Marseille had to settle for a 1-1 draw with Strasbourg in the French Ligue 1 while Ajax were able to manage a 5-0 success over Vitesse Arnhem.

Match Result Prediction: Marseille to win

Even though Ajax are coming on the back of a five-star performance in the Dutch league, the Dutch outfit have struggled in the European games this season. They are still waiting for the first win of the Europa League group stages this season. The appointment of John van ‘t Schip is likely to have a positive impact but not enough to get a big victory at the Stade Velodrome, where Marseille are unbeaten since August.

Total Goals Prediction: Total goals over 2.5

There have been more than 2.5 goals quite comfortably in three of the last four games for Ajax. Yet, they have struggled to translate this form into the European games. The recent double-header against Brighton ended in a 4-0 aggregate defeat. Such has been the volume of the struggles in Europe this season. Even then, Marseille being quite lackadaisical at the back could help in over 2.5 goals.

BTTS Prediction: Goals from both teams – yes

Marseille have managed just two clean sheets in the last five matches in all competitions. Ajax might not have scored in back-to-back Europa League games but they are potent nonetheless. This potency was displayed in the numerous domestic matches. This fixture could end up with goals at both ends.

Marseille vs Ajax: UEFA Europa League Match Preview

Marseille

Marseille have only managed one win in the last four outings and the French club have every reason to be concerned about focusing on the Europa League in the next two matches. The club have a solid four-point advantage over AEK Athens but they also have a great opportunity to finish ahead of Brighton in the top spot. Manager Gennaro Gattuso will be without Valentin Rongier because of injuries.

Ajax

Ajax will be hopeful that a managerial change will help the team recover from a horrendous start. The choice of going with John van ‘t Schip does help provide some familiarity with the team. Jay Gorter, Josip Sutalo, Remko Pasveer, Sivert Mannsverk, Brian Brobbey, Branco van den Boomen, and Amourricho van Axel Dongen are out because of injuries for the new Ajax coach.
