European football returns this week and will see Olympique Marseille host Feyenoord at Orange Velodrome on Thursday night in the second leg of their Europa Conference League semifinal clash.

Olympique Marseille were beaten 3-2 in the first leg last week. After falling two goals behind in the first 20 minutes of the game, the Olympians did superbly well to draw level before the break, only to fall behind immediately after the restart.

The home side have won two European titles in their history, most recently lifting the now discontinued UEFA Intertoto Cup in 2005. They have it all to do in the second leg in their quest for another continental triumph.

Feyenoord got off to a flyer in the first leg via a quickfire double from Cyriel Dessers and Luis Sinisterra before being pegged back. The Nigerian striker then restored their lead early in the second half with his 10th Conference League goal of the season to hand the Dutch outfit the advantage ahead of Thursday's decider.

The visitors have impressed in the continental tournament so far and will be looking to book their place in the final later this week.

Olympique Marseille vs Feyenoord Prediction

Olympique Marseille are on a run of back-to-back defeats and will be desperate to end that run this week. They have won five of their last six home games across all competitions and will be looking to capitalize on their home advantage on Thursday.

Feyenoord are on a five-game winning streak and are undefeated in their last eight. Their first leg win should be enough to secure them a place in the final.

Prediction: Olympique Marseille 2-2 Feyenoord
