Marseille haven’t lost in any competition since the Champions League defeat to Olympiakos in November and they look well placed to extend that sequence by getting the better of Inter Milan at the Stade Velodrome, a result Blue Square offer at 5/4.
Underdogs at 11/4 with bet365, the Italian outfit have lost five out of their last six, drawing the other clash 4-4 at home to Palermo and in all of those defeats Claudio Ranieri’s charges have failed to even get on the scoresheet. Subsequently, Totesport’s 13/5 for the hosts to win ‘to nil’ catches the eye and for the bold, Ladbrokes quote Marseille at 10/1 to notch twice without reply.
In Switzerland, Bayern Munich are just 8/13 with Paddy Power to rack up a first leg lead at the expense of hosts Basel. Those odds however, are plenty short enough and shrewd punters are likely to change tack and back unstoppable Bayern striker Mario Gomez at 11/10 (Coral) to find the net at any time.
