Tottenham Hotspur v Olympique Marseille: Group D - UEFA Champions League
Olympique Marseille will host Eintracht Frankfurt on Tuesday - UEFA Champions League

Olympique Marseille will host Eintracht Frankfurt at the Orange Velodrome on Tuesday night in their second group game of the 2022-23 UEFA Champions League campaign.

The Ligue 1 outfit kicked off their continental campaign on the wrong foot, losing 2-0 to Tottenham Hotspur in midweek The first half was a fairly even one, with both teams struggling to create much before Chancel Mbemba's dismissal after the restart saw the game go away from Igor Tudor's men. Marseille are enjoying a good run of form in the league and will now look to carry that momentum onto the European stage.

Frankfurt, meanwhile, were also beaten in their opening European game of the season, losing 3-0 to Sporting Lisbon. They were the better team in a goalless first half but were undone by their incisive opponents after the restart.

The Bundesliga outfit sit rock-bottom in Group D and need to pick up points to move up the standings.
