Marseille take on Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday with the visitors looking to make it two wins from two in the group stages. The hosts are seeking their first points of the competition after losing their opening game in Group C.

Marseille Form

Marseille have made a decent start to the Ligue 1 season, finding themselves fourth in the table after eight games. Andre Villas-Boas’ team made it five games unbeaten in the league at the weekend with a 1-0 away win at Lorient thanks to Leonardo Benardi’s second half goal.

That will have helped lift morale after Marseille kicked off their Champions League campaign with a heartbreaking 1-0 defeat to Olympiakos. It appeared as though the French outfit were on their way to a hard-fought point before Koka scored a 90th minute winner for the Greek side. 

That result leaves Marseille under pressure to avoid defeat on Tuesday or face a real uphill battle to qualify for the round of 16.

Marseille Team News

Marseille have no fresh injury concerns coming into Tuesday and could go with an unchanged lineup from the weekend’s victory at Lorient.

Man City Form

Manchester City’s stuttering start to the season continued at the weekend with a 1-1 draw away to West Ham. Pep Guardiola’s side had to come from behind to earn their point as Michail Antonio’s opener was cancelled out by Phil Foden’s second Premier League goal of the campaign.

City have now one win from their last four Premier League games, picking up just five points from a possible 12 during that time.  

They did make a winning start in the UEFA Champions League last week thanks to a 3-1 win over Porto. Despite falling a goal behind to Luis Diaz’s effort, Sergio Aguero, Ilkay Gundogan and Ferran Torres goals ensured City took all the three points.

Man City Team News

Manchester City will be without Nathan Ake, Aymeric Laporte, Benjamin Mendy, Fernandinho and Gabriel Jesus for this midweek away trip.

Marseille vs Man City Match Up

There aren’t many teams who can compete with the quality and depth of Manchester City’s squad and Marseille will have an uphill battle from that perspective. But City’s lack of form may leave the door open for the French side to pull off a shock.
