Olympique Marseille will host Porto
Let’s head out to the Orange Velodrome in Marseille where Olympique Marseille will host Porto in a game from Group C of the Champions League. In today’s soccer predictions for this week we are going to discuss this fixture with you. Let’s get to work.
On Wednesday Olympique Marseille will try to win their first point in the Champions League for this season. So far the French club is not doing very well in the competition – three losses from three matches played. Despite this Marseille still have some chances to get the third place in the standings – Andre Villas-Boas’ team is just three points behind Olympiakos in the standings.
We expected more from Olympique Marseille, but things are just not working for them in Europe at the moment. In these three matches the former European champions didn’t score a single goal, which is really bad. Villas-Boas must find a way to change the way his team performs in the Champions League.
Porto on the other hand are currently favourites for the second place in this group. Right now the Dragons are second with 6 points and they have three points advantage in front of the third Olympiakos. A win in France could more or less send Porto the knockout phase.
Two weeks ago Porto didn’t make a mistake against Olympique Marseille at the Do Dragao. The game on Portuguese soil ended with a crushing 3-0 win for the Dragons. Marega and Sergio Oliveira scored in the first half while Luis Diaz finished the job after the halftime break.
These are our soccer predictions for this week for the Champions League game between Olympique Marseille and Porto at the Velodrome. Could the French club wins its first points in the competition for the 2020/21 season? We believe Porto are favourites here, but let’s see what Marseille can offer us.
