Marseille v Spurs – Match Preview
This will be a crucial match for both teams on Tuesday night, with neither team securing their place in the knockout rounds.
The Lilywhites are currently top of the group, and a win in France will secure their qualification for the next round as group winners.
Spurs came out as 3-2 winners against German team Eintracht Frankfurt in their latest Champions League win thanks to two goals from Heung-Min Son (20’, 36’) and Harry Kane (28’).
Son is the top goal scorer in the competition this year for the Lilywhites, finding the back of the net on two occasions. Croatian international Ivan Perisic has also been impressive in this season’s competition, with two assists.
Tottenham have been prolific as a team this season, with six goals in the group stage so far, and they will be looking to add to this total.
Marseille have also had a good Champions League campaign so far. Their top goal scorer is ex-Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi, who has scored 2 of the French club’s seven goals.
This will be the maiden encounter between these two teams, and you will not want to miss this historic occasion with a lot on the line.
