Benfica-OM: at what time and on which channel to watch the Europa League quarter-final first leg?

Olympique de Marseille will shake up the memory box by meeting Benfica Lisbon this Thursday in the quarter-final of the Europa League. Stuck in a complicated period (four consecutive defeats), Jean-Louis Gasset’s Marseillais travel to the Portuguese pitch, before the return leg scheduled for April 18 at the Vélodrome.

In 1990, Marseille was eliminated by this same opponent in the semi-final of the European Champion Clubs’ Cup because of the very controversial handball of the Angolan Vata. In the round of 16, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s teammates easily won the first leg against Villarreal (4-0) before experiencing a more difficult return match, but sufficient (3-1 defeat) to ensure their qualification. .

Second in their Championship, four points behind Sporting Lisbon, the Portuguese defeated Glasgow Rangers in the previous round. In the event of qualification for the semi-finals of the competition, the Marseillais will face the winner of the duel between Liverpool and Atalanta Bergamo.

The match between Benfica Lisbon and Olympique Marseille kicks off at 9 p.m. this Thursday, April 11. The match will be broadcast live on M 6 and Canal + Foot.
