Marseille v Man City team news

Marseille: The French side have the pleasure of being able to call upon a fully fit squad for the visit of Man City.

Dimitri Payet is serving a domestic ban but will be available for continental duties while Boubacar Kamara looks set to return to the fold.

Man City: Pep Guardiola has a raft of injury problems on his hands with several first team players set to miss out on the trip across the channel.

Gabriel Jesus, Fernandinho and Benjamin Mendy have all been ruled out while Aymeric Laporte, Nathan Ake and Sergio Aguero remain doubtful.

However, Kevin De Bruyne could make a return to the starting XI in what would come as a massive boost for Guardiola.

Our prediction: Marseille v Man City

With both teams struggling to find their best form so far, the clash at the Stade Velodrome could prove to be quite a tussle.

Despite their numerous injury issues, City are still a real force to be reckoned with going forward. The likes of Raheem Sterling and Phil Phoden will be chomping at the bit to get running at their French hosts.

Guardiola's backline could look very different to what we are used to but, even still, City should have just about enough to get over the line.
