Marseille could set unbeatable and unwanted Champions League record against Porto

Posted by

Domestic and Champions League form has never been so markedly different as it is in the case of Ligue 1 side, Marseille.

The French outfit have had a reasonable start in the French league, winning five, drawing three and losing just one of their nine matches.

Their 18 points has them in sixth place at present, six points behind leaders, Paris Saint-Germain, but with two games in hand.

In Europe, the contrast in form, application and results is quite incredible.

In the three games played so far, Marseille have lost them all and, what’s more, they’ve not scored and only had four shots on target, per

Andre Villas-Boas made his feelings clear recently, and he’ll surely be hoping that his outburst has the desired effect against Porto.

Should the French side lose again, it will mean an unwanted record of suffering 13 straight defeats in European football’s premier competition, a run which began with a 2-1 away defeat at Inter in the 2011/12 Round of 16 second leg.
