How to watch Marseille vs Frankfurt in the Europa League on September 20, 2018

September 19, 2018 By Michelle Bonsu
This will be the first ever European meeting between last season's runners-up Olympique Marseille and German cup winners Eintracht Frankfurt.

Match Preview

After finishing last season as the runners-up, Marseille will begin the current Europa League campaign at home with a clash against Eintracht Frankfurt. The hosts were beaten 3-0 by Atletico Madrid and will face Frankfurt for the first time in European competition on Thursday evening, and having had a strong run in Europe's second-tier competition last season, will hope to do the same as they open their European campaign in front of their home fans.

Marseille have tended to struggle against German opposition, but beat RB Leipzig 5-2 in the second leg of the quarter-finals which ended a three-game run at home without a win. Overall, the French side played ten games at the Stade Velodrome at home last season and won nine of them. The only side who were able to deny them from making it a perfect ten wins out of ten was Austrian outfit Red Bull Salzburg, who managed to earn a scoreless stalemate during the group stages, but Marseille beat them 2-0 in a re-match during the first leg of the semi-finals later that season.

As for Frankfurt, they earned their spot in the Europa League thanks to their stunning victory over Bayern Munich in the DFB-Pokal last season under then-manager Niko Kovac. That marked their first piece of silverware in three decades and means that Frankfurt are back in the Europa League for the first time since the 2013/2014 season when they were knocked out by Porto in the round of 32.

  • Marseille's record against German opponents is W5 D1 L3
