Tottenham Hotspur will mark their return into the UEFA Champions League with a Group D clash against Marseille on Wednesday.
German outfit Eintracht Frankfurt and Portuguese powerhouse Sporting are also in the group.
It has been dismal for Spurs in the elite European competition after losing 2019’s Madrid final to EPL rivals Liverpool.
Antonio Conte’s side however have began the season well and remain unbeaten in the English top flight after 6 games.
Marseille also recorded a 4th consecutive Ligue 1 win to remain level on points with league leaders PSG, only with an inferior goal difference.
Most recently occupying a spot in the Champions League two seasons ago, Marseille have failed to make it out of the group in their last two appearances.
Also, their 12 losses against English opposition in the competition is not admirable.
What time does Spurs vs Marseille start?
The game kicks off at 10pm at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
