Marseille vs Manchester City Bet Builder Tip – 16/1 Champions League Tip

Marseille vs Lille betting tips

Manchester City travel to Southern France to play Marseille in the Champions League tonight, but Pep Guardiola will be without Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus. They’re favourites to win, but are unlikely to have it all their own way.

Match Preview

Marseille are managed by former Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas and he will look to frustrate City tonight. The visitors have not had a good start to the season domestically, picking up just eight points from their opening five matches. They did beat Porto 3-1 in their opening group match but this is likely to be a tough task in Southern France.

Marseille were beaten 1-0 by Olympiakos in last week’s opening round of matches but they have made a solid start to the season in France, winning four and drawing three of their opening eight matches. Media reports suggest we might see a back three, slipping to a back five from Marseille in this game as they look to frustrate City, so low goals might be a wise play for our football betting tips on the clash at the Stade Velodrome.

Raheem Sterling to score

The winger could be deployed as a false 9 here with both Aguero and Jesus out of contention and he has a good record in the Champions League. He has scored twice in the Premier League so far this season and will be one of the main goal threats for City tonight. He goes in our bet builder as an anytime goalscorer tip.


Under 4 goals in the match

This is the same as under 3.5 goals and if Marseille are going to set up defensively as predicted, it could be a testing night for Manchester City. They will have to be patient and Kevin De Bruyne wil need to find the key passes to break this Marseille defence down. Under 3.5 is a safer bet than under 2.5 goals here, as an early goal for City will mean Marseille have to change their tactics.


Hiroki Sakai to be carded

The full back will be tasked with looking after one of Manchester City’s wingers tonight and whether that be Mahrez, Silva or Foden, he will be in for a long night of stopping crosses and breaking up play. The Japanese defender has already picked up three bookings this season and another one could come his way tonight, completing our bet builder betting tip.
