Manchester City vs. Marseille Match Analysis and Prediction

Manchester City prepares for the heated Manchester Derby with a Champions League dead rubber against basement side Marseille in Group C. The side will welcome Marseille at Etihad Stadium on Wednesday with a kickoff at 11 pm.

Pep Guardiola’s side already secured a spot in the last 16, whereas Marseille can hope for a spot in the Europa League after a dismal run in the group stages.

It was a surprise that Pep Guardiola’s side only managed to defeat Fulham last weekend with two goals. However, the side managed to keep their four clean sheets in succession in a routine win against the strugglers.

It seems the Citizens are finally getting their groove back after a dismal start to the Premier League campaign. It has been a different case in their European form without netting a loss in the group stages with a spot in the last 16. The side dropped points for the first time in Europe this season as they were held back in a goalless stalemate.

Marseille’s first appearance in the Champions League since their 2013-14 campaign has been underwhelming, to say the least. Although Villas –Boas’side managed to get off the market with a win against Olympiacos.

Despite their troubles in the Champions League, Marseille remains unscathed in Ligue 1 with a 2-0 victory against Nimes marked their fifth top-flight victory on the bounce.
