Two weeks after Olympique de Marseille's qualification against Leipzig at the Orange Velodrome, the stadium again broke its attendance record on Thursday for the semi-final between OM and Salzburg .

More than 62,000 (62,312) were at the Orange Velodrome to attend the Europa League semi-final first leg against FC Salzburg. This set a new record for a European match played within the grounds of Boulevard Michelet.

The now-ex-record attendance recorded two weeks ago during the historic meeting against FC Leipzig in the quarter-finals did not last very long. The 61,882 on Thursday, April 12, 2018 was quickly overshadowed. That was a A record that dethroned the one set in the 2004 UEFA Cup semi-final at the Vélodrome in 2004 between the club and Newcastle (58,897).
