Manchester City vs Olympique Marseille: Recommended bets

Ferran Torres to score first. The Spaniard is expected to lead the line once again for City with Gabriel Jesus being saved for the weekend’s Premier League action.

City will be confident of netting a couple of goals against a struggling Marseille and they will be hoping Torres can add to his tally of four in the competition.

Torres is 7/1 to open the scoring at the Etihad on Wednesday.
