It’s a first-versus-last showdown in Group D of the Champions League on Tuesday night, as high-flying Sporting take on basement boys Marseille at the Stade Velodrome. Ruben Amorim’s men have been sensational in Europe this season after putting Frankfurt and Tottenham to the sword, and the Portuguese club will now be looking to add Marseille’s scalp to their impressive collection.
If Sporting have been mesmeric, then Marseille have been miserable. Igor Tudor’s men are smashing Ligue 1, currently unbeaten after nine games and just two points below PSG. But it’s been a different story in Europe. Les Phoceens are winless, goalless and pointless in Group D after back-to-back defeats to Spurs and Frankfurt. If they are to have a chance of progressing from the group, then a result here is simply non-negotiable.

Marseille vs Sporting: Match Stats
Marcus Edwards has been sensational for Sporting this season and will want to continue his good form approaching the World Cup. The Enfield-born winger, once likened to Lionel Messi by Mauricio Pochettino, attempted (seven) and completed (four) more take-ons than any other player against former club Tottenham just before the international break. He has also made the joint-most take-ons leading to shots (three) in the Champions League this season.
Incredibly, Marseille have lost 16 of their last 17 Champions League matches, failing to score in 11 matches during this diabolical sequence, including both games this season. What’s more, they’ve also lost six of their eight European Cup/Champions League matches against Portuguese opponents. Their only win came in the home leg of the 1989/90 semi-final when they beat Benfica 2-1.
