With neither team performing as they would have hoped to as far as the league is concerned, Inter are touch above evens odds with William Hill to take the spoils.
Both Internazionale and Marseille will be hoping to make the best of this season’s Champions League when the pair meet on Tuesday.
The weekend saw Inter end a miserable run of eight games without a win when they ran out a 2-0 victory over mid-table Chievo.
Marseille’s streak without a league win doesn’t stretch back quite as far as Inter’s but won’t do much for the French side’s morale before they travel to the San Siro this week.
Les Phoceéns have lost their last four matches in Ligue 1 and are yet to record a win since January.
However, Didier Deschamps’ side last proved triumphant in late February when they played host to the faltering Inter and finished as 1-0 winners.
The French outfit currently have the fifth best home attack in Ligue 1, scoring an average of 1.15 goals per game this season when away from the Stade Vélodrome.
That being said, Marseille have failed to score in 46% of their away games and will need to improve upon that trend this week as they sit on the slightest of aggregate scores before travelling to Italy.
La Beneamata would seem to be vulnerable opposition however as Inter currently hold one of the worst home defences in the Italian top flight.
Claudio Ranieri’s side are far from the Champions League winning group they were in 2010 and have conceded an average of 1.36 goals per game when performing in front of their home fans this campaign.
Despite the illustrious history of both parties, this match will instead be a battle between two sides struggling to hold down positions in the top halves of their respective leagues.
As a result, both Inter and Marseille will be raring to gain access to the Champions League quarter-finals in what promises to be an open and exciting encounter.
