A disastrous start to Marseille’s Champions League campaign saw them lose at Greek outfit Olympiacos. It is the first time the club has been in the competition since the 2013/14 season when they finished rock-bottom of their table consisting of Dortmund, Arsenal and Napoli, and it could be a similar finish this time around if they don’t improve on that last performance.  

Man City have been struggling by their standards this season, losing to Leicester 5-2 back in September, although they’ve still won three of their five unbeaten outings since. 

Those two stalemates did come on the road to Leeds and West Ham last time out, so Pep Guardiola will need to find a way of getting his charges to fire better on the road. 

They do have an impressive W6-D2-L1 record when visiting sides in this tournament since the start of the 2018/19 campaign though, only losing out to eventual finalists Spurs in 2019. 

They did concede in all but two of those fixtures however and having also let a goal into the back of their net in all three road games in the Premier League so far, the hosts will fancy their chances of getting on the scoreboard. 

Manchester City To Win And Both Teams To Score

Andre Villas-Boas’ men have gone just W1-D2-L1 from their four outings at Stade Velodrome this term, with both sides netting in three, but currently sitting in fourth place in Ligue 1 is certainly respectable. 

They beat PSG on the road at the start of the season too, while a stalemate with second-placed Lille shows they have the quality to take it to the top teams. 

However, this encounter will be another step up in class and you’d think a draw would be a success for them. 

Kevin De Bruyne made his return to football at the weekend since injuring himself in the last international break, and he’ll most likely start this one. 

The Citizens have gone just W6-D1-L4 from their 11 matches without the Belgian international starting in both the Premier League and Champions League since the start of last season, while they’re a much better W25-D4-L6 in the 35 with him. 

Moreover, they even lost to the likes of Norwich and Southampton without him, while four of their victories in his absence came against Burnley, Bournemouth and Dinamo Zagreb twice. 

That proves just how important he is to the side and back in the team, we’re struggling to see how Marseille can overturn them. 

The French outfit will be boosted by the return of Dimitri Payet which only increases the case for the hosts to be able to find the net. By contrast, Guardiola could well be without both Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus, but Raheem Sterling has the quality to fill in as a false nine, while City could also welcome back start centre back Aymeric Laporte. 

All things considered, the visitors look well placed to take the full three points, but we would be surprised if they didn’t leak a goal or two in the process.
