Manchester City tough to beat.
It’s been a rollercoaster couple of weeks for The Citizens with a fine win followed by a poor performance. In the last 3 matches, Manchester City destroyed Burnley by 5 goals, followed by a 0-0 draw against FC Porto in the Champions League and a powerful 2-0 win against Fulham in the last match.
With 5 wins from their last 6 matches few sides have been as awesome on home turf as The Citizens this season, and three more points look to be a given on Wednesday.
Marseille on a roll.
Marseille will be out to extend their fine run of results in the league lately. In the last 3 matches, Marseille managed to get a rather comfortable 3-1 home win to Nantes, followed by a tiny 2-1 win against Olympiacos in the Champions League and most recent a clear 2-0 win against Nimes.
Marseille go into this encounter with 3 wins in the last 6 matches on the road, thus making the upcoming fixture look like a tall order for the away side.
