Betting tips & odds comparison 25.11.2021 Galatasaray Spor Kulübü - Olympique de Marseille
Betting Tip for matchday 5 of the 2021/2022 Europa League between Galatasaray Spor Kulübü and Olympique de Marseille. The game will be played at Nef Stadyumu (Istanbul, Turkey) on 25.11.2021 at 18:45.
Galatasaray and Marseille are coming off gruelling derbies in their respective countries, as they head into their penultimate match in Group E of the UEFA Europa League. The Turkish team are dictating the pace in the group with eight points, while Marseille are adrift with four points in the third position.
Jorge Sampaoli’s men have drawn all their games in this season’s competition and they will be in the hunt for their first win here. We are going to explore Betbonanza and Bet9ja sportsbooks for our betting tips for this fixture.
Galatasaray may be top of their group in the Europa League, but they will be cautious ahead of their encounter against French outfit, Marseille, having suffered a painful 2-1 loss to bitter rivals Fenerbahce in the Turkish Super Lig last weekend.
Fatih Terim’s team got off to a great start with Kerem Akturkoglu’s effort, but they were pegged back by Mesut Oezil’s strike before the break, before conceding late in injury time.
That bitter loss will still be fresh on their minds and they will do all they can to avoid a similar outcome against Sampaoli’s team. So far, they have won two and drawn two of their four games in the group.
Marseille have their work cut out with the trip to Turkey. The French missed out on an opportunity to get in the right frame ahead of their Europa League fixture on Thursday when their derby match against Lyon was called after only four minutes had been played due to crowd trouble.
Les Olympiens are unbeaten so far in Group E, but they are yet to win, with their most recent draw coming in the form of an exciting 2-2 draw against Lazio. Jorge Sampaoli and his men have no choice but to get all three points on offer, but it is not going to be a stroll in the park.
Marseille midfielder Dmitri Payet is expected to miss this class, as he is recovering from a head injury from a missile that hit him in Sunday’s incident. In a similar vein, Valentin Rongier will also sit out this one due to a suspension.

GALATASARAY VS MARSEILLE BETTING TIPS
Galatasaray may have lost to arch-rivals Fenerbahce at the weekend and subsequently struggle to banish the ghost of that defeat, but they are under no pressure in the Europa League. Their past performances in the group have them in good stead to progress.
The home side has been defensively solid except in some games where they lost concentration at the back. So, it may be difficult for Marseille to make in-roads into the host’s rearguard, especially in the absence of Dmitri Payet. Therefore there is value in backing Galatasaray to win at 2.90 on Betbonanza.
Marseille have been very difficult to beat this season, but they are always falling short of getting over the finish line. They have drawn four times in the competition this season and they come into this game with a run of 7 unbeaten games. Due to this, and the fact that Galatasaray has been defensively solid, we are backing the first half to end in a draw at 2.04 on Bet9ja Nigeria for our second tip.
