Chelsea Vs Marseille – Champions League – Match Preview and Betting Tips

Chelsea will host French Marseille tonight at 19:45 GMT for their second round match at the group stage in Champions League this year. The Blues have suffered two defeats in a row and will be looking to get back on track in this game. We have looked at both sides and found the most interesting betting tips, predictions and odds for you.


Chelsea had the best possible start to the season, but defeats in their last two matches against Newcastle and Manchester City might be worrying for Carlo Ancelotti. In their first group match they won comfortably away against MSK Zilina 4-1 and The Blues will likely use this game to get back on track.


Marseille did not have a perfect start to the season and the defending French champions have only received 11 points in seven matches. In their last match they won 2-1 against Sochaux, which hopefully will give them some confidence before going to Stamford Bridge.

Betting Tip

Their home advantage should be enough for Chelsea in this encounter, where Chelsea will be able to take control in Group F. The last encounter between the sides was in 2000 with both sides winning their home game 1-0. Our match prediction will be 2-0 for Chelsea.
