Marseille – Stats & current form
Olympique Marseille has now compensated for the mixed start to the season and is on course to make amends. As a late bloomer, OM not only conquered second place in Ligue 1, but even fought their way into the quarter-finals of the UEFA Conference League on the international stage, where the trend-setting matches against PAOK Saloniki are now pending.

Realistic chances of winning the title?
If you take a look at the remaining eight teams in the Conference League, Olympique Marseille has a chance of winning the international title this season. The traditional club from the Côte d’Azur last won a UEFA Cup in 2005. Olympique Marseille won the UEFA Intertoto Cup back then.
Against PAOK Saloniki there is no easy hurdle in the quarterfinals. Nevertheless, the role of the “Phocéens” as favorites is understandable, especially since OM have only lost two of eight competitive games on the international stage against teams from Greece. Marseille, on the other hand, won five times.
If the next win now beckons, odds of 1.43 for tip 1 will be paid out at Marseille vs PAOK Saloniki. Marseille have yet to lose a single game at home on the international stage this season. It is quite possible that the strong home record will also be underpinned against PAOK.
Estimated formation of Marseille:
Mandanda – Lirola, Caleta-Car, Saliba, Kolasinac – Gueye, Guendouzi – nder, Gerson, Payet – Milik

PAOK Thessaloniki – Stats & Current Form
PAOK Saloniki is among the top eight teams in a European Cup for the first time since the 1973/74 season. Because the white-blacks partially benefited from the luck of the draw, the course so far on the international stage should not be overestimated. At least PAOK stumbled in the group phase and only got their ticket for the knockout phase in the last group game.
A hard-fought win over FC Midtjylland followed in the round of 32. PAOK lost the first leg against the Danish representative, but there was a comeback for the double-headed eagles in the second leg, which ultimately won the round of 16 ticket on penalties.
PAOK Saloniki presented themselves much better against KAA Gent in the round of 16 of the Conference League. The defensive bulwark against the Belgian club was particularly convincing. After all, PAOK only conceded a single goal in Gent. After winning a two-legged game, PAOK had an overall score of 3:1.
Can PAOK defy the French offensive?
Compared to the youngest opponents from Gent, however, the quarter-final opponents from Marseille should be of a completely different caliber. In particular, the attacking detachment of the French is to be assessed far more strongly. Betting friends who still want to risk a prediction on the guests at Marseille vs PAOK Saloniki can tap betting odds of 8.50 if they are successful.
PAOK Saloniki currently has against teams from France a record of 3-1-5 on the international stage. PAOK have only gone unbeaten in European competitions against clubs like Rennes and Lyon, but have so far lost to clubs like PSG, Sochaux and EA Guingamp. PAOK now meets Marseille for the first time.
Head coach Lucescu approaches the match with the best players possible. Only Oliveira will be sidelined in Marseille due to injury. The guests from Thessaloniki did not have to complain about any further failures.
Expected formation of PAOK Thessaloniki:
Paschalakis – Lyratzis, Varela, Crespo, Vierinha – Tsigarras, Kurtic – Murg, Augustus, Biseswar – Zivkovic
