Reason for Manchester City vs Marseille Predictions
At the top of the group sits City, who has 13 points, while Marseille has three points, at the bottom of it. Manchester City thumped Marseille 3-0 in their first meeting in this group, and they are sure to finish top of the pile. After a shaky period in their season earlier on, City has stabilized and is now on three wins in their last four matches and four straight clean sheets in the run. They have failed to score in two of the previous five games, and this includes their 0-0 draw with FC Porto in their last Champions League game. With eight goals scored in their last four matches, City will be firm favorites going to this game, while a run of six unbeaten games at home further boosts them. The Premier League giants have five wins, four clean sheets and have conceded just one goal in their last six home matches. They have scored two or more goals in four of their previous five games at home and head to this game on four straight clean sheets in the Champions League. In their last 15 Champions League matches, Manchester City has booked 11 wins and lost once, and they are unbeaten in their previous 10 Champions League games played at home. Phil Foden shows her talent and should be one of the leading players in the future. Raheem Sterling is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control, and he can be satisfied with his performance.
Marseille have not had a very rosy return to the Champions League. So far, they have managed just one win and two goals in their five Group C matches. The two goals had come from the penalty spot, both in the last game, when they came from down to beat Olympiakos 2-1. They head to this game on a fine run, having won four of their last five games, but have just two clean sheets in the process. They have no clean sheet in their five Group C matches but will be hoping to carry their scoring form to this game, having netted at least twice in their last three games. Marseille’s last five goals have come in the second half, and six of the eight goals they have scored in the previous five matches have also come in the second half. Valentin Rongier has excellent control of the ball, and he can play in several positions.
Manchester City is a big favorite in this match, and they are expected to solve the question of the winner at half time.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
