Facing Leipzig, Thursday night in the quarter-final second leg of the Europa League, the Orange Vélodrome stadium broke its attendance record for a European Cup match.

Thursday night in the UEFA Europa League quarter-final second leg against RB Leipzig, there were 61,882 in attendance. The Marseille club broke its record attendance for a European meeting.

With so many people in the stands, the atmosphere was exceptional, as Les Olympiens mounted several dramatic comebacks using the ground and emotions as fuel.

The record was previously set against Newcastle in 2004 for the UEFA Cup semi-final, as was the attendance record so far this season (60,410 for OM - PSG).

Thank you for your unconditional support. See you in the semifinals! Go OM !
