Olympique de Marseille will do battle with RB Salzburg in the UEFA Europa League semi-finals.

After their five-star display to win past RB Leipzig in the quarters, Olympique de Marseille will now face off against RB Salzburg in the UEFA Europa League semi-finals. The first leg will be played at OM's Orange Vélodrome on Thursday, April 26 with the return leg to be played in Austria on Thursday, May 3.

First leg at the Orange Vélodrome

Marseille have already played Salzburg this season - back in the UEFA Europa League group stage, when OM lost 1-0 in Austria before playing out a 0-0 draw at the Vélodrome in the reverse fixture. Marseille, the last French club in the running in European competition, will be playing their first continental semi-final since season 2003-04.

Should OM win past RB Salzburg, they will earn a place in the UEFA Europa League final at the Groupama Stadium in Lyon, taking on the winner of the other semi-final, between Arsenal and Atletico Madrid.
