Marseille and Eintracht Frankfurt face off on Tuesday in a Champions League soccer game in Group D at Stade Velodrome.
Marseille currently sits in 3rd place in the standings, having picked up zero points. Marseille opened up their season against Tottenham Hotspur, and they were defeated 2-0. They only managed one shot on goal and that led to the defeat. Marseille also played most of that game short-handed with Chancel Mbemba Mangulu picking up a red card in the 47 minutes, and he will be suspended for this game. Leonardo Balerdi is expected to move into the starting lineup to replace him. Over the weekend they faced off against LOSC and the offense scored two goals and that was enough to secure the victory. Isaak Toure, Cedric Bakambu, and Bamba Dieng are all expected to have a chance to move into a starting lineup in this game.
Eintracht Frankfurt also sits in 4th place in the standings, having picked up zero points. They opened up their season against sporting and the defense really struggled, giving up three goals and that led to the defeat. They had 43 percent of the possession and only two shots on target, and that led to the defeat. Over the weekend against Wolfsburg, the offense again struggled, and they were defeated 1-0. Christopher Lenz, Sebastian Rode, and Almamy Toure are all out long-term with injuries. Jesper Lindstrom is expected to move into the starting lineup in this game.
Frankfurt has been so inconsistent this season and there is no chance I think they can keep this game close. Look for Frankfurt to fail to get on the board, and Marseille will score at least a couple of goals here. Back Marseille to have no issue getting the job done here as they secure the 2-0 victory.
