French side Marseille host Lazio in matchday 4 of the UEFA Europa League seeking their first win of the season in the competition.

The hosts are in third place with three points after draws in all of their games, including a barren draw when these two teams last met.

Lazio on the other hand are in second place with 4 points, three behind league leaders Galatasaray.

Lazio’s inconsistent nature has crippled them majorly since the start of October – chalking up just two wins from their last six games in all competitions – and Sarri’s side are winless in their last six away games.

Marseille need to avoid defeat if they are to keep alive any qualification hopes and Lazio have the chance to go top.
