Atalanta vs Marseille (agg:1-1): Moment of truth as both teams faceoff in the return leg.

Italians Atalanta, host French side with semi-final all square.

Tonight’s match between Atalanta and Marseille is a hard-to-call second leg of the Europa League semifinal. The match between Atalanta and Marseille is set to begin at the Gewiss Stadium in Bergamo today, Thursday, May 9, 2024, at 8 p.m. BST. In the second leg of their Europa League semifinal matchup with Marseille, Atalanta will be depending on Gianluca Scamacca and Charles De Ketelaere.

The Italian team has already defeated Liverpool, and they drew 1-1 with the French powerhouses the week before their home match. Even still, Marseille has persevered throughout the season in the face of increased unrest in Ligue 1, and they have a rich history in Europe, even though their Champions League victory was more than a generation ago.

Atalanta record

Atalanta, who defeated Liverpool in the quarterfinals, will be optimistic about making it to their first-ever European final when they go to Bergamo for the second leg. Atalanta was not able to maintain their early lead at Stade de Marseille. La Dea’s unbeaten away streak in Europe now stands at 11 games thanks to another excellent performance in France. They also came dangerously close to securing a first-leg advantage when Aleksei Miranchuk missed a late penalty kick.

Marseille needs to improve its away record in order to have any chance of traveling to Dublin later this month, even if they have won their last three Europa League semi-final matches. Only one of the competition’s six away games this season has been won by the 2017–18 finalists, who also lost to Villarreal in the round of 16 and Benfica in the quarterfinals. Can Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who was held at bay by Atalanta in the 1-1 draw on Thursday, find his way back to the Europa League and lead OM to victory in Italy?
