The Europa Conference League is a pretty open affair and there aren’t too many teams that stand out more than the rest. Perhaps one of the remaining eight that does, however, is Marseille. The one-time European champions dropped down from the Europa League group stage having finished third in an extremely tough group behind Galatasaray and Lazio.

Marseille made very light work of their first tie in the Europa Conference League, beating Qarabag 6-1 in the knockout play-off round. Their reward was a potentially tricky tie against Basel, but a pair of 2-1 wins put Marseille through to the quarter-finals, the furthest they have been in a European competition since reaching the 2017/18 Europa League final.

PAOK, on the other hand, have been in the Europa Conference League from the off and actually had to go through two qualifying rounds before reaching the group stage. The Greek side were put in a tough group but got through it in second, finishing behind FC Copenhagen – while also handing the Danes their only defeat.

However, as a result of their second-placed finish PAOK had to go up against Europa League dropouts Midtjylland in the knockout round play-offs and just about got past them thanks to a penalty shootout. In the last 16 it was an equally tough tie against Gent, but PAOK went through thanks to a 3-1 aggregate win.

Marseille vs PAOK: Match Stats

Arkadiusz Milik is expected to be out for Marseille through injury, a big blow for the French club, but they do still have Dimitri Payet capable of scoring goals. The Frenchman has netted 12 goals across all competitions this season, including one in the Conference League.

Marseille are undeniably the favourites and have won their last five European matches, just one away from breaking the club’s record for a winning run in a major European competition. At the same time, PAOK are winless in France in European matches, managing just one draw and three defeats against Lyon, Sochaux, PSG and Guingamp.
