Manchester City travel to the south of France to take on Marseille in their second Champions League group stage game.

Pep Guardiola’s side clinched a big win at the Etihad to Porto, with bad blood simmering between the two coaches afterwards.

The Citizens then coughed up two more points in the Premier League, rallying from behind thanks to Phil Foden against West Ham.

Now they continue their battle to banish their demons in Europe following last season’s devastating quarter-final loss to Lyon.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the match.

Manchester City are back in action in the Champions League against Marseille, with Pep Guardiola’s side right there with Bayern Munich as the favourites in the early stages.

Despite last season’s devastating loss to Lyon in the last eight, City remain hotly-tipped to finally break through in Europe.

The Citizens are yet to hit top gear though, with West Ham holding them to a 1-1 draw last weekend.

Phil Foden inspired a second-half comeback against the Hammers and will hope to continue his impact after breaking through as a major first team player over the last year.

Manchester City continue their Champions League campaign against Marseille as they attempt to finally win the big one.

It has proven illusive for Pep Guardiola since moving to the Etihad, with Lyon upsetting City last season in the last eight.

Marseille are next after a hard-fought victory over Porto in the opener last week, having lost to Olympiacos in their own week one contest.

Guardiola is yet to find the right combination as his team stutters after five games in the Premier League, with West Ham holding them to a draw.

Dimitri Payet will come back from suspension for the French giants, with the former West Ham star set to feature alongside Dario Benedetto up top.

Sergio Aguero is set to miss some time after exiting the West Ham game with injury at the break. Gabriel Jesus is out too. Benjamin Mendy and Fernandinho look set to remain out, but Nathan Ake and Aymeric Laporte could feature.
