Champions League nights are back at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, so will they claim three points on opening night?
Spurs worked so hard to qualify for this competition last season, sat ninth when Antonio Conte took over but managing to pip fierce rivals Arsenal to fourth at the last.
Of course, Tottenham reached the final of this competition in 2019, and have only failed to advance through one of five Champions League group stages to date.
Less promising though is Conte’s personal record in UEFA competition; he’s failed to progress through four of his last five group stages.
Nevertheless, given that they’ve won 11 of 15 European matches at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, a home win seems likely.
1993 European Cup winners Olympique Marseille meantime have a very poor recent record in this competition.
Les Phocéens finished rock bottom of their group in 2020, meaning they’ve actually lost 14 of their last 15 Champions League fixtures, last victorious on the road in this tournament 11 years ago.
However, OM did get all the way to the Europa Conference League semi-finals just last season, bowing out to Feyenoord.
Also, Igor Tudor’s team have made an excellent start in Ligue 1; Saturday’s 2-0 win at Auxerre means they’ve accumulated 16 points from six matches.
Captain Dimitri Payet, once of West Ham, as well as the former Arsenal contingent, Nuno Tavares, Sead Kolašinac, Mattéo Guendouzi and in-form Alexis Sánchez, would all love to secure an away win here.
Meanwhile, at the weekend, Tottenham put in their best display of the campaign.
Pierre-Emile Højbjerg and Harry Kane on target in a 2-1 victory over Fulham, leaving them on 14 points from a possible 18.
Here, will Spurs be too strong in North London?
