Key Highlights

Marseille Looking to Change their Poor Domestic Form

Marseille are winless in the last five matches in Ligue 1. They have drawn three times and lost twice, dropping the table to 9th place, nine points behind third-place Nice.

They warmed up for the home clash against Shakhtar Donetsk with a 1-0 loss away to Brest, who had a man sent off in the 60th minute, playing 30 minutes with 1o men.

The focus for Marseille will be to build their confidence from a positive showing in their first clash against Shakhtar, which ended in a 2-2 draw. A repeat of the form and fight they showed, with a tightened defensive showing will stand them in good stead.

Shakhtar Donetsk Looking to Tighten their Defense Away from Home

Shakhtar conceded two goals in the first leg, while scoring twice in the process. Their potency in the final third will be encouraging as they approach the clash against Marseille away from home.

However, there is a need for Shakhtar to adapt their shape and approach in the away leg to ensure that they are defensively sound and minimize the number of chances they concede against Marseille.

A pragmatic and tactical approach will see Shakhtar Donetsk play with a low block and rely on transition and counterattacks to create chances and pose an attacking danger.
