Yes, Marseille lost its last five games, but the Olympians have been considerably better at home, losing only one of their last 10 matches. During that span, they defeated Shakhtar Donetsk 3-1 and Villarreal 4-0 in the UEL. Plus, winning the continental tourney is the only way to save their season since they currently are 24 points behind PSG in Ligue 1.

Player Props Pick: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Anytime Goalscorer (+125)

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is having a great season. He’s the UEL top scorer with 10 goals. That’s three more goals than Romelu Lukaku from AS Roma.

Auba is officially on fire after scoring 10 goals in Marseille’s last 10 games in all competitions, including three braces, one in the previous round of the continental tournament against Villarreal. Villarreal is arguably better than Benfica, which means the centre-striker shouldn’t have any trouble scoring against them. Include him in your soccer betting ticket.
