  • Marseille have scored two or more goals in eight of their last ten UEFA Europa League matches.
  • Marseille striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang equalled Radamel Falcao's record total tally of 30 UEFA Europa League goals in the first leg.
  • Marseille have progressed in 14 of the 15 UEFA competition ties in which they have drawn away from home in the first leg. Their only defeat came against Benfica in the 2009/10 Europa League round of 16 (1-1 a, 1-2 h).
  • Shakhtar Donetsk have lost only three of their last 16 UEFA competition matches against French teams (W7 D6).
  • Shakhtar Donetsk have won only three of their last 11 second leg matches in UEFA competition two-legged ties.
  • Shakhtar Donetsk have only failed to score in one of their last 18 UEFA club competition matches.
  • Shakhtar have had eight aggregate eliminations in the 11 UEFA club competition ties in which they drew at home in the first leg. The Ukrainian side have never won a tie after a 2-2 home draw in the first leg in four previous attempts.


It has been a turbulent week for Olympique de Marseille as they decided to swap coaches on Monday. Gennaro Gattuso was relieved of his duties and replaced by former Ivory Coast boss Jean-Louis Gasset at Stade Velodrome. Their 2-2 draw with Shakhtar Donetsk in the first-leg of this tie in Hamburg has contributed to a run of just two victories in their last 11 matches across all competitions with those wins coming against bottom-of-the-table Clermont and lower league Thionville Lusitanos. Shakhtar have been undermined by FIFA rulings allowing players to move on free transfers as a result of the ongoing war between Ukraine and Russia but they remain competitive in all of their matches so another game in which both teams score does seem likely.
