The Marseille vs Shakhtar Donetsk Europa League clash promises a thrilling second leg on Thursday, with both sides seeking victory after a 2-2 draw in the first leg. But while Shakhtar Donetsk boasts historical dominance in their head-to-head record, Marseille holds a significant advantage: their unbeaten home record.

How is Their Performance

Marseille enters the match with a concerning run of seven winless games across all competitions, including a recent 1-0 defeat in Ligue 1. This slump has seen them drop to ninth place in the league, raising relegation concerns.

Shakhtar Donetsk, meanwhile, arrives on the back of three consecutive unbeaten games. However, they haven't won their last two competitive matches, with a Champions League defeat against Porto lingering. Their away form also raises concerns, with a four-game winless streak on the road.

Historically, Shakhtar Donetsk holds the upper hand, having won two of their previous three encounters with Marseille. However, Marseille boasts an impressive 15-game unbeaten home streak, making them the favorites on home soil.

Prediction On The Marseille vs Shakhtar Donetsk Match

Despite their recent struggles, Marseille's formidable home record and passionate home support should give them the edge. We predict Marseille will overcome their recent slump and emerge victorious in the Marseille vs Shakhtar Donetsk clash, securing their place in the next round of the Europa League.
