Manchester City Preview – Citizens to end group campaign with an easy home win?

Manchester City have taken 13 points from a possible 15, winning four and drawing one of their opening five. The Citizens kicked off their campaign with a routine 3-1 home victory over Porto and have not looked back since.

City followed that up with back-to-back 3-0 victories over Marseille and Olympiacos. On matchday four, Man City booked their place in the knockout rounds with a 1-0 win over Olympiacos at the Karaiskakis Stadium, with Phil Foden scoring the only goal of the game.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

Man City’s winning run came to an end when they were held to a 0-0 draw by Porto at the Estadio do Dragao last week. Therefore, Guardiola’s superstars will be looking to return to winning ways in Europe on Thursday night.

Marseille Preview – French side to leave London with no goals or points

Marseille have had a miserable Champions League campaign up until now. The Ligue 1 outfit have lost four of their five Group C matches, but they could sneak into the Round of 32 of the UEFA Europa League if results go their way in midweek. However, that seems an unlikely scenario.

Marseille failed to recover from an opening day 1-0 defeat to Olympiacos in Piraeus, with the Greek side’s goal coming in injury time. The Olympians went on to lose their next three. However, they did manage to pick up a home victory over Olympiacos last week, with Dimitri Payet bagging a brace in a 2-1 win.

Getting anything at the Etihad Stadium this Thursday will no doubt be an arduous task for Andre Villas-Boas and his boys. The bookies are not giving the French side much hope, either, pricing them at 7/1 to cause an upset in England.

The reverse fixture at the Stade Velodrome back in October was the first ever game between the two clubs. City ran out comfortable away winners in that one, with Ferran Torres, Ilkay Gundogan and Raheem Sterling getting the goals.


Key Facts – Manchester City vs Marseille Betting Tip

  • Wednesday’s match at the Etihad will be just the second ever meeting between the two clubs

Since the opening round win over Porto, Man City have yet to concede in the Champions League. City’s foundations are built on a solid defence, and Pep will be looking for a clean sheet and maximum points in this one. Back the hosts to win to nil at 5/4.

Raheem Sterling, who scored in Marseille, ended a six-game scoreless run with a goal against Fulham in the Premier League last weekend. You can get 10/3 for the England international to open the scoring on Wednesday.
