Marseille host Porto in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday. The French club have lost their last 12 matches in the competition, can they avoid defeat against the Portuguese champions?

Marseille Form


Marseille are unbeaten in eight of their opening nine Ligue 1 matches this season. It has been a different story in the Champions League where the French club have lost all three matches without scoring.

Andre Villas-Boas’ side lost 1-0 at Olympiakos, 3-0 at home to Man City and 3-0 in Porto. It was a close match in Portugal with Dimitri Payet missing a chance to equalise from the penalty spot.

The defeat stretched their losing run in the competition to 12 matches. 

Marseille’s Ligue 1 match came on 6 November, a 1-0 win in Strasbourg. Morgan Sanson scored the winner in a match with few chances, it was Marseille's only shot with the hosts ahead 0.32-0.04 in expected goals.

This will be Marseille's first game since the international break. Their match against Nice was postponed, their second postponement in Ligue 1 in less than a month.

Marseille vs Porto Match Up


Marseille’s recent record in the Champions League doesn’t look good but they have been unlucky this season. They conceded a late goal in Greece and were good enough for a draw in Portugal.

Porto have won their last three matches but the opposition in the last two has been poor. Portimonense and Fabril Barreiro are nowhere near Marseille’s level and Sérgio Conceição’s side can’t afford to underestimate the French club.
