The UEFA Champions League returns with a new edition as Marseille take on Greek side Olympiacos in a Group C fixture at the Karaiskaki Stadium on Wednesday. Both teams have endured inconsistent league seasons so dar and will want to prove a point in this game.

Marseille are currently in sixth place in the Ligue 1 table and have managed only one victory in their last five games. The French outfit has not been at its best and will need to step up to the plate in the UEFA Champions League this week.

Olympiacos are unbeaten so far this season but will face several uphill battles in Europe over the next few months. The Greek giants are underdogs in their group and will look to prove a point in the Champions League this year.
