Marseille coach Andre Villas-Boas: Man City clear favourites

Olympique Marseille coach Andre Villas-Boas insists they're major underdogs facing Champions League opponents Manchester City.

The two teams will meet later this week.

AVB said, “They're the group's favourite. We will see what we will put in place.

"It will be hard to contain them. City concede few chances. We will have to take advantage of those we are going to have. We're going to adapt to City's control of ball possession. If you rush them, it can go wrong because it's a team that always finds solutions between the lines, with its mobility.

"Today, (Sergio) Agüero was taken off and (Phil) Foden entered and scored (against West Ham). It's a very tough team when you press them."
