Betting tips for Marseille VS FC Porto 25.11.2020
Marseille are the only team to remain scoreless and goalless in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) so far and will likely feel the pressure to avoid becoming the first team in UCL history to record 13 consecutive losses in the competition. Another cause for concern is the fact that they have failed to win any of their last five UCL matches against Porto (E1, P4 - GF 4, GC 10).
