Team News

The hosts are set to welcome Dimitri Payet back to the starting lineup after he sat out the win over Lorient through suspension, and Villas-Boas has no selection concerns whatsoever for the visit of City.

Payet is likely to be supporting Dario Benedetto up top, although the 30-year-old is yet to find the back of the net this season and will be desperate to open his account on Tuesday evening, however difficult that may be.

Villas-Boas revealed that he is looking to switch things up against the potent attack of City, which could very well see Balerdi, Alvaro Gonzalez and Duje Caleta-Car line up in a three-man defence.
Marseille possible starting lineup:
Mandanda; Caleta-Car, Gonzalez, Balerdi; Sakai, Kamara, Rongier, Amavi; Thauvin, Benedetto, Payet
Marseille Champions League form: L
Marseille form (all competitions): DDDWLW

Manchester City
However, the potent attack of City is sure to be without its talisman Aguero, who lasted 45 minutes before being subbed off against West Ham, while the Argentine's fellow striker Gabriel Jesus is also out.

Benjamin Mendy and Fernandinho will likely be sidelined until after the international break, but defensive duo Nathan Ake and Aymeric Laporte both have a chance of being involved in midweek.

Owing to the absences of Aguero and Jesus, Raheem Sterling could very well be deployed a false nine, with Kevin De Bruyne and Foden expected to come back into the starting lineup after being named amongst the substitutes at the London Stadium.

Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Zinchenko; Rodri, Gundogan, De Bruyne; Torres, Sterling, Foden

Manchester City Champions League form: W
Manchester City form (all competitions): LWDWWD

Prediction: Marseille 0-2 Manchester City
