Marseille v Manchester City: Recent FormMarseille go into this game on the back of consecutive Ligue 1 victories after beating Bordeaux (3-1 at home) and Lorient (0-1 away). In Champions League, they suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat as the conceded a last-minute winner in their opening-day match against Olympiacos last week. The French outfit have gone just W1-D2-L1 from their four outings at Stade Velodrome this term. Andre Villas-Boas’ men are backable at 8/1 with William Hill.
Man City have been struggling by their standards this season. The Citizens began their Champions League campaign in ideal fashion with a 3-1 victory over Porto last week and are unbeaten in 5 matches since their 5-2 heavy defeat at the hands of Leicester in September. Anyway, they have shared spoils both with Leeds UTD and West Ham and currently sit 13th in the league table with one game in hand. A win for Pep Guardiola's men is available at 2/5 with STS, one of the top new betting sites we are recommending on our portal.
Team NewsMarseille are set to welcome Dimitri Payet back to the starting XI. Dario Benedetto and Florian Thauvin are expected to complete the front trio. Andre Villas-Boas may use a three-man defence as he attempts to blunt City's attack. Leonardo Balerdi, Alvaro Gonzalez and Duje Caleta-Car should start at the back.
Pep Guardiola is without injured duo Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus. As a consequence, Raheem Sterling will play as false nine again. Kevin De Bruyne is expected to feature from the off, after playing some minutes from the bench at the weekend. Aymeric Laporte should make the squad here while Benjamin Mendy and Fernandinho are still out through injury.
Probable Line-upsMarseille (3-4-3): Mandanda; Caleta-Car, Gonzalez, Balerdi; Sakai, Kamara, Rongier, Amavi; Thauvin, Benedetto, Payet
Manchester City (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Zinchenko; Rodri, Gundogan, De Bruyne; Torres, Sterling, Foden

Marseille vs Manchester City PredictionsWe expect Manchester City to claim all three points here. Plus, Marseille are struggling in front of the goal - only 11 goals scored in eight Ligue 1 matches so far - and Man City are without their first-choice forwards. Hence an Under 3.5 goals bet should be a safe one.
