Marseille vs Manchester City: Prediction
Pep Guardiola has a chip on his shoulder after his failures in the biggest stage in Europe in back-to-back-to-back years.
The Olympians are from the French Ligue 1, and against a team from the best league in Europe, they stand no chance at all. And do note that the Citizens have been the best team in the EPL along with Liverpool, for the past few years.
Going on, Olympiacos are probably the weakest team in the whole Group, and Villas-Boas’s men opened their campaign with a loss against them. Moreover, they were also winless in five of their former seven overall games.
