Marseille vs. Manchester City Match Analysis and Prediction

Manchester City look set on making it two wins in their return to the Champions League this week. The side travels across the Channel to take on side Marseille at the Orange Velodrome. The match schedules for Tuesday with kickoff at 11 pm.

Marseille marked their return to Champions League football on a low note following their 1-0 loss to Greek side Olympiacos. Their last feature in the Champions League dates back to the 2013-14 campaign.

Andre Villas-Boas held the Greek side for the full 90 minutes until Ahmed Hassan made the difference for the hosts off the bench. An insult to the injury was former Olympian Mathieu Valbuena provided the assist for the equalizer.

However, the side managed to overcome their heartbreak in the Champions League as they shared the spoils with side Lorient. Boas hoped his side showed a convincing performance against the Ligue 1 strugglers with Leonardo Balerdi equalizing.

West Ham is currently making it a habit in the League to take off points from the top six sides. Manchester City fell for a 1-1draw to the Hammers in the weekend fixture. The draw marks another draw for Pep Guardiola in the Premier League.

Despite the draw, Pep will enjoy the Group against sides Marseille, Port, and Olympiacos. Pep faces a hectic fixture schedule as they enter into the match.
