Marseille vs Manchester City Free Betting Tips – Champions League 2020 (27.10.2020)
Man City needs the away win
Betting Tips: Both teams to score/ YES
The next round in the Champions League group stage is coming up and Manchester City has to live up to their favourite role in Group C once again. In the away game against Marseille, it will not be easy for the British to take home the victory they had hoped for.
The hosts are known to be unpleasant opponents and can certainly challenge City with an experienced and quick-witted force. With a corresponding defensive performance, the outsider might even be able to win points. Stopping the offensive fireworks of the Guardiola team is known to be difficult.
Due to the statistically oppressive superiority of the guests, the bookmakers in the game Marseille vs. Manchester City agree on the odds.
Marseille – Statistics & current form
The French runners-up had to cope with a bitter start to the season in the Champions League because the Greek group outsider Olympiakos suffered a sobering 1-0 defeat last week. Now the traditional club would like to present itself in a different light and at least deliver a decent game. It goes without saying that you shouldn’t necessarily expect a win against Man City.
Nine games, two defeats
The season so far can be regarded as reasonably satisfactory. Like the Champions League, the league season opened with a defeat but has not gone bankrupt since then. This fact may now also be considered a good omen for the premier class.
Andre Villas-Boas, who has been looking after Marseille for a year now, wants his team to grow with the task at hand. The bookmakers should be shown that they will play in the game Marseille vs. Manchester City have judged the betting odds a little too quickly because with a value of 9.00 the hosts are staged as having virtually no chance.
The coach naturally sees it differently. He wants to pull the teeth of British ball artists with a compact defensive performance and wait for counter situations at the right moment. One of the other hit is certainly possible.
Home advantage hardly used so far
It’s bitter for Marseille that things are currently not running at all in their own stadium. Five points from four games are certainly an unsatisfactory result. The home balance should now be improved as quickly as possible.
Even if the bookmakers in the game Marseille vs. Manchester City probably rightly declare a tip on the hosts as an outsider option, at least a goal for the French is not unlikely, as Marseille only went without a goal twice in the current season.
The home side also benefits from the fact that the list of injuries, which can be viewed under bans and injuries in the Champions League, is empty. Coach Villas-Boas can therefore muster his first guard against the English title co-favourites.
The probable lineup of Marseille:
Mandanda – Sakai, Gonzalez, Caleta-Car, Amavi – Sanson, Gueye, Rongier – Thauvin, Benedetto, Payet
Last matches from Marseille:
10/24 2020 Lorient 0 – 1 Marseille

Manchester City – Statistics & current form
The Citizens have been one of the favourites for the title in the premier class for years, but so far they have not even made it to a final. If it is up to start coach Pep Guardiola, who is now in his fourth season on the sidelines, then it should finally be so far this year.
Mixed start to the season
Whether Agüero, Sterling or De Bruyne, there is no shortage of names in this squad. At the beginning of the season, however, the English runner-up was by no means confident. The way back to the top nationally is therefore not easy at the moment.
In the league, City was only able to deliver two wins in five games this season. Against Leicester, it also set a deep-seated 2: 5 rejection. A serious candidate for the title should probably present itself differently.
In order not to slide into a serious mess, the Guardiola team must now present themselves well in the Champions League. With Porto, Marseille and Olympiakos they caught a very feasible group.
A long list of injuries
It is well known that an accident rarely comes alone and so the use of seven players on Tuesday is questionable. The hoped-for away win will therefore be a tough job.
Nevertheless, in the game Marseille vs. Manchester City to make a clear prediction on the guests, because thanks to their squad depth, the expected losses should be compensated to some extent equally.
Because the Citizens have scored in every game of the season so far, but have not yet conceded a goal, a bet on a two-sided goal is an excellent option for us.
The probable lineup of Manchester City:
Ederson – Walker, Dias, Garcia, Cancelo – Silva, Rodri, Gündogan – Mahrez, Agüero, Sterling
Last matches from Manchester City:
10/24 2020 West Ham 1 – 1 Manchester City

When it comes to the duel Marseille vs. Manchester City is coming, a tip on the guests is actually the obvious choice. However, due to better betting odds and the high chance of success, we recommend betting on a two-sided goal.
Relevant statistics underline this option, because City has always scored this season, but only remained without a goal once. The situation is similar with the hosts, who have so far only failed to score twice but have almost always conceded a goal.
