Man City vs Marseille: Betting tips, predictions, odds & match preview
Manchester City go into their final Champions League group stage game against Marseille on Wednesday knowing their spot at the top of Group C is secure.
Man City vs Marseille: Predictions
Despite being frustrated, a goalless draw with Porto last week meant the Portuguese side could not overtake Man City at the top of the group, giving Pep Guardiola and his men the potential of a slightly easier draw in the last-16.
However, they will still want to end the group on a high with 16 points, what would be their best return in the competition.
They come up against a Marseille that may be hoping for a win, chasing Europa League football, though the current standings are not on their side. Marseille level on points with Olympiacos but have the disadvantage on head-to-head having conceded an away goal to the Greek side. Therefore even a win may not be good enough for Marseille should Olympiacos match their result against Porto.
Both sides go into the game on the back of wins, with Man City beating Fulham and Marseille winning away to Nimes in their respective pushes for a high league finish.

Man City vs Marseille: Match Stats
Man City have won four of their five group games so far, only dropping points to Porto last time out, and they have been almost unbeatable in defend. The Citizens have conceded just one goal in their five games so far, the joint-best record in the Champions League this season.
Rotation will likely see Phil Foden handed another start in the Champions League, possibly on the wing. The Englishman has scored four goals in his 14 appearances across all competitions this season, three of which have come while in an advanced role.

Scoreline prediction: Man City 3-0 Marseille
Man City vs Marseille: Head-to-Head
27 October 2020 – Marseille 0-3 Man City (Champions League)
Man City’s 3-0 win over Marseille in October was the first meeting between these two sides, but they both have history against teams from the opposition country. Man City’s previous games with French opposition have brought mixed results, with three wins, three draws and three defeats, and they were knocked out of the Champions League last season by Lyon.
One-time Champions League winners Marseille have faced English opposition on no fewer than 25 occasions in their long history but they have managed to win just eight. And of those eight, only one came away from home, against Liverpool in 2007.
