Marseille vs Shakhtar: Top free betting tips

Marseille welcomes Shakhtar to the Stade Velodrome in the second leg of the round of 16 from the Europa League. The first leg ended in a 2-2 draw with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang pitting the French side 1-0 in front before Matviyenko equalised just four minutes later, the scoring then continued late into the game when Iliman Ndiaye must have thought he had won the tie for Marseille when he scored in the 90th minute but Shakhtar quickly pegged Marseille back in the 92nd minute with a goal from Eguinaldo to leave the tie level.
