OM have impressed me this season, mainly by their willingness to attack teams, even on the road and this is a tactic that should serve them well at PSV, who have looked below the level we expect of them and will struggle to defend their domestic title this season. OM boss Eric Gerets will be going "home", after spending ten years at PSV, he has done a great job at Marseilles, when he took over last year, they were in the drop zone, but he guided them to a third place finish and has built on that this season. OM have lost just four league starts in 2008 and are unbeaten this campaign.
Their more adventurous approach will serve them well in a fixture where only the winner will retain any hope of group progression and we can expect goals. Gerets has a fully fit squad at his disposal, plenty of competition for places and has pledged to go for the win. Several players out for the hosts, including key defender Jan Kromkamp.
5.5 points Marseille -1/4 ball 2.47 asian line.
