The Yellow Submarine are faced with a near-impossible task after suffering a heavy 4-0 defeat in last week’s trip to the Stade Velodrome.

After enduring a disastrous result last Thursday, Villarreal have their work cut out if they are to keep their hopes alive of replicating their 2021-22 run to the Europa League trophy.

The Yellow Submarine bounced back from their fruitless trip to France to secure all three points in Sunday’s five-goal thriller with Real Betis.

Marcelino’s side will now return home for the first time since beating Granada 5-1 earlier this month, and they will be looking for a repeat of that free-scoring display on Thursday.

Although they may struggle to overturn the four-goal deficit, Villarreal will at least fancy their chances of securing a second-leg victory, having won nine of their last 10 home games in the Europa League since losing to Valencia in April 2019.

Marseille may have began the campaign under Villarreal manager Marcelino, but they are currently under the guidance of their third coach of the season after Jean-Louis Gasset replaced Gennaro Gattuso last month.

Gasset has kicked off his tenure with five successive wins, including the dominant performance in the first leg to leave Marseille on the verge of sealing their spot in Friday’s quarter-final draw.

A Jordan Veretout effort and a Yerson Mosquera own goal gave Marseille a two-goal lead inside the opening half-hour against Villarreal, before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang netted a brace to seal a 4-0 victory.

Aubameyang went on to score two more goals in Sunday’s 2-0 victory over Nantes, ensuring they are yet to lose a home game inside regulation time this season.

Marseille will now turn their attention back to European action, and they will certainly be confident about protecting their sizeable first-leg advantage, having conceded four or more goals in just one competitive game this season.

Juan Foyth is closing in on a return to fitness, but the defender is unlikely to return in time for Thursday’s second leg.

Marseille Team News

Marseille are still unable to call upon the services of the injured quartet of Samuel Gigot, Amir Murillo, Bilal Nadir and Valentin Rongier.

Gasset will be hoping to have Jonathan Clauss back for the trip to Spain after the right-back sat out the win over Nantes due to a slight knee problem.
