Marseille v Shakhtar: How to watch, TV channel, head-to-head stats & team news

Marseille take on Shakhtar in the Europa League knockout round play-offs with the tie finely-poised after a gripping first leg.

Marseille led on two occasions but were held dramatically by Shakhtar, with Eguinaldo's 92nd minute equaliser salvaging a 2-2 draw for the Ukrainian outfit.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's landmark goal had put the Ligue 1 side ahead before Mykola Matviyenko restored parity, and just when Marseille appeared to be taking an aggregate lead back to Stade Velodrome as Iliman Ndiaye struck in the 90th minute, there would be one last fateful twist as Eguinaldo dispatched a looping header into the top corner.

It's a goal which sets up a fascinating second leg in southern France.

Finishing second in Group B behind Brighton, Marseille won two of their three home matches in the Europa League group stage, with Joao Pedro's late penalty denying them from a clean sweep at the Stade Vélodrome.

Les Phocéens have not won a league game since a 2-1 victory over Clermont Foot on December 17, accumulating just four points from a possible 18 in their last six outings.

Shakhtar claimed a famous victory over Barcelona in the Champions League group stage but it was not enough to secure their progression, with the Marino Pusic's men finishing 3rd in Group H on nine points.

The Ukranian side have the upper hand in the head-to-head record having defeated Marseille across two legs in the quarter-finals of the 2008/09 UEFA Cup; the year they went on to lift the trophy.
