Olympique de Marseille faces Shakhtar Donetsk in the second leg of the Europa League play-off (9 p.m., W9) Jean-Louis Gasset, the new coach, could not dream of a more beautiful baptism of fire. The last French club to reach the semi-final of a European Cup (elimination from the Europa Conference League against PSV Eindhoven in 2022) Marseille, second budget in Ligue 1 (€270 million), is in a sad 9th place.
