Marseille will be looking to bounce back from their defeat against Lens when they take on Galatasaray in the Europa League this week.

The two sides meet on Thursday at 20:00 pm BST.

The French outfit were held to a draw against Lokomotiv Moscow in their group opener and they will want to pick up all three points here.

Galatasaray bounced back from back to back defeats with a 2-1 win over Goztepe last time out and they will fancy pulling off an upset here.

Marseille vs Galatasaray form guide

The defeat against Lens at the weekend was Marseille’s first loss of the season and they will be determined to bounce back strongly with a win here.

However, the French outfit have failed to win their last nine matches in the Europa League.

Meanwhile, the visitors are winless in four of the last six matches across all competitions.

Regardless of their current form, Galatasaray are undefeated in their last five matches in the Europa League and they could give Marseille a run for their money here.
