Marseille v Spurs Betting Tips & Predictions

In a beautifully poised Group D, Tottenham are 7/5 favourites over Marseille for their crucial Champions League matchday six encounter at Stade Vélodrome.

Fresh off a spectacular comeback win away to Bournemouth, Tottenham are in high-stakes Champions League action. 

Just two points separate Antonio Conte’s group leaders from fourth-placed Marseille, and it really is all to play for on matchday six. 

Marseille need a win to stand a chance of progressing, while a draw would see them move into the Europa League if Sporting lose to Eintracht Frankfurt.

It is simple for Spurs: a win gets them through to the Champions League knockout rounds for the first time since 2019-20. 

Winner: Tottenham

7/5 (Betfred)

Spurs’ away form leaves plenty to be desired in 2022-23, but Marseille are struggling at the moment with just one win in six in all competitions. 

Tottenham got a real confidence boost from their win at Bournemouth, and they controlled the match when these teams met in north London, registering double as many shots as Marseille.

While Marseille have been competitive in the Champions League, they are the weaker of the two teams here, and could struggle. 

Both Teams To Score: Yes

8/11 (Unibet)

A win is the only way Marseille can progress to the last 16. They will be forced to chase this game from kick-off, leaving space for Spurs to exploit in transition.

Tottenham’s defence has been vulnerable at points this term, which should mean Marseille can get on the scoresheet.

Spurs have only failed to score once in their last six matches. An open match is to be expected. 

To Be Shown A Card: Rodrigo Bentancur

7/4 (Boyle Sports)

Shown four yellows in the Premier League and two in the Champions League, Rodrigo Bentancur has performed well this season, but he’s a constant card risk in a combative Spurs midfield. 

Facing a Marseille team with some talented ball-carriers, Bentancur will inevitably be lured into a poor tackle or two here.

This is a great price on the former Juventus man to be shown a card.
