  • Atalanta’s only previous UEFA competition semi-final tie was a 4-2 aggregate defeat against KV Mechelen in the 1987/88 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup.
  • Atalanta could be the ninth different Italian club to reach the UEFA Cup/Europa League final. The nation with the most different finalists is Germany (ten), England are second with nine.
  • If Atalanta reach the final they will be the 62nd different club to feature in a UEFA Cup/Europa League final.
  • Atalanta have lost only one of their previous 11 UEFA Europa League matches this season (W6 D4).
  • Atalanta have won 11 of their last 14 home matches in all competitions (D1 L2).
  • Atalanta have only failed to score in two of their last 24 UEFA competition matches.
  • Gianluca Scamacca has scored six goals in his last six appearances in the UEFA Europa League.
  • Marseille have won their previous three UEFA Cup/Europa League semi-final ties (vs Bologna in 1999, vs Newcastle in 2004 and vs FC Salzburg in 2018).
  • Marseille are aiming to reach a fourth UEFA Cup/Europa League final which would move them level with Juventus, Liverpool and Borussia Mönchengladbach. Only Inter (five) and Sevilla (seven) have more appearances in the final.
  • Marseille have won their last seven two-legged ties in the UEFA Europa League knockout rounds.
  • Marseille are without a win in their last eight UEFA competition matches against Italian teams (D3 L5).
  • Marseille have won only one of their previous 11 UEFA competition matches against Italian teams in Italy (D5 L5). The only victory was against Inter in the 2003/04 UEFA Cup quarter-finals (1-0).
  • Marseille have won the second leg in six of their last eight UEFA competition ties (D1 L1).


At Stade Velodrome this season, Olympique de Marseille defeated Ajax, Shakhtar Donetsk, Villarreal and then Benfica but the French giants were held to a 1-1 draw by Atalanta in the first-leg of this UEFA Europa League semi-final. On the road, Jean-Louis Gasset’s side have been much more underwhelming and that means Atalanta will welcome the Ligue 1 side to Italy with a lot of confidence. After defeating Liverpool in the quarters and also competing for UEFA Champions League qualification in Serie A, as well as having the Coppa Italia final against Juventus to look forward to, it could be a special season for Gian Piero Gasperini’s men and, with home advantage, should be backed to edge through to a first ever European final.
