Rotated Citizens to deliver final blow to Marseille
Manchester City’s drab goalless draw in Porto last week saw them secure their position at the top of Champions League Group C, and with a hectic festive calendar on the horizon Pep Guardiola is expected to rotate his squad heavily here.
However, such is the Citizens’ strength in depth that the hosts are still comfortable favourites here, especially coming up against a Marseille side that have looked dreadful at times this season.
The Ligue 1 outfit picked up their first points in the Champions League last week as they came from behind to beat Olympiakos, but prior t that they had lost all four games and failed to score a single goal.
We’re also backing a 2-0 correct score prediction, with the hosts averaging 2.0 goals per game in the Champions League this season and Marseille conceding the same amount.
