Match Preview


Manchester City will endeavour to make it two wins out of two in the 2020-21 Champions League when they cross the Channel to take on French giants Marseille on Tuesday evening.
In contrast, the hosts marked their return to the pinnacle of club football with a disheartening 1-0 defeat to Greek champions Olympiacos last week.
Marseille are enjoying their first venture in the Champions League since the 2013-14 campaign, but the Ligue 1 powerhouses soon rediscovered the sometimes cruel nature of Europe's elite competition when they travelled to Piraeus for their opening-day showdown with Olympiacos last week.
Andre Villas-Boas's men had kept the Greek giants at bay for 90 minutes before Ahmed Hassan made the difference off the bench for the hosts by netting an injury-time winner, with Marseille's misery compounded as former Olympien Mathieu Valbuena provided the assist for Hassan's header at the Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium.
However, Marseille managed to recover from their European heartbreak at the weekend as they took the spoils at Lorient in Ligue 1, although Villas-Boas would have hoped to see his side record a more convincing victory against the strugglers as Leonardo Balerdi notched up the game's only goal in the second half.
Les Olympiens have now put together a five-game unbeaten streak in the top flight, and a victory with a clean sheet should instil some confidence in the Marseille faithful before Tuesday's encounter with a Manchester City side determined to return to winning ways following yet another domestic slip-up.
West Ham United have made a bit of a habit of taking points off of top-half teams as of late, with Wolverhampton Wanderers, Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur all failing to overcome David Moyes's men in the last few weeks.
In fairness to City, Pep Guardiola has a lengthy injury list to contend with, but the Citizens dropped more points early on in the season as the Hammers battled to a 1-1 draw against the four-time Premier League champions, with Phil Foden coming off the bench to cancel out Michail Antonio's brilliant opener in the capital.
Guardiola's men were unable to make it three wins on the bounce on Saturday, but City began their Champions League campaign in ideal fashion with a 3-1 victory over Porto last week, with Sergio Aguero, Ilkay Gundogan and Ferran Torres all finding the back of the net against the Portuguese champions.
A group including Marseille, Porto and Olympiacos is certainly one that Man City will be expected to top, but Guardiola has already bemoaned the hectic fixture schedule as City look to navigate a busy few weeks unscathed and with as many points as possible both domestically and internationally.
Tuesday's clash represents the first-ever meeting between Man City and Marseille, and both sides will be determined to claim all three points as they look to stake an early claim for a top-two finish.
