With top spot in Group C secure, Pep Guardiola’s side will be hoping to end the round-robin phase on a high ahead of a busy festive period.

City, who are yet to break a sweat on the European front so far, will be more than confident of tucking another three points neatly away in their back pockets.

The French visitors, meanwhile, will be desperate to avoid the wooden spoon in the group and will be hoping to catch an already-qualified City off guard.

With a spot in the Europa League Round-of-32 still on offer, it is a much more important game for Marseille than it is for City.

Man City v Marseille team news

Man City: Guardiola, who will have one eye on the upcoming Manchester derby, is likely to opt for heavy rotation.

The likes of Oleksandr Zinchenko, Eric Garcia, Fernandinho, Phil Foden, Nathan Ake, Bernardo Silva, Ferran Torres and even some of his top academy prospects will all be pushing for starts.

Marseille: Leonardo Balerdi is available once again after serving a suspension last time out against Olympiacos.

Dimitri Payet could drop to the bench as was the case with the reverse fixture.

Our prediction: Man City v Marseille

Despite already being qualified, there is still plenty to play for in terms of the Man City squad.

With Christmas around the corner, several individuals will be hoping to use the opportunity to remind Guardiola what they are capable of.

While it may not be City’s strongest side, they should be able to overpower their visitors and secure all three points.

Our prediction: Man City 2-0 Marseille
