Tottenham squad & team news
Bryan Gil and Lucas Moura‘s injury concerns have been compensated by the returns of Rodrigo Bentancur and Cristian Romero in the Fulham win.
Barcelona loanee Clement Lenglet‘s Champions League experience may help him keep his place in the XI but it’s a big decision for Conte to make between Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski going forward while Son Heung-min has also had a bit of a slow start in the new season.
It was the English team’s sixth consecutive home win, while Igor Tudor’s side has four Ligue 1 wins in a row to keep pace with leaders Paris Saint-Germain.
Tottenham possible XI: Lloris; Romero, Lenglet, Dier; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Perisic; Richarlison, Kane, Son
|Lloris, Forster, Austin

|Skipp, Hojbjerg, Bissouma, Bentancur, Sarr, Sessegnon, Perisic, Kulusevski, White

Marseille squad and team news
It looks like a depleted line-up for the visitors as Dimitri Payet has a calf problem and Alexis Sanchez is suspended, while forwards Cedric Bakambu and Bamba Dieng are left out of the trip to London after failed transfer moves.
Sead Kolasinac is expected to start in place of Samuel Gigot in defence, with Matteo Guendouzi possibly reclaiming his place in the XI from Cengiz Under, while Luis Suarez should get the nod in attack.
Marseille possible XI: Lopez; Mbemba, Balerdi, Kolasinac; Clauss, Rongier, Veretout, Tavares; Guendouzi, Gerson; Suarez
|Ngapandouetnbu, Lopez, Blanco, Van Neck

Tottenham will kick off their Champions League Group D campaign against Ligue 1 side Marseille on Wednesday evening.
Tottenham vs Marseille latest odds
The north Londoners return to Europe’s premier club competition after a three-season gap and will be aiming to improve on their recent home record in the competition.
The visitors meanwhile have won one of their last 15 matches in the competition and their last victory on the road came in December 2011.
Tottenham vs Marseille first goal scorer odds
Marseille’s Colombian striker Luis Suarez is the shortest priced visiting player to open the scoring at 11/1 (12.00), with former West Ham winger Dimitri Payet is available at 12/1 (13.00) and on-loan Arsenal full-back Nuno Tavares at 22/1 (23.00).
Tottenham vs Marseille preview
Marseille are level on points with PSG at the top of Ligue 1 following an excellent start which has seen them claim 16 points from a possible 18.
At least nine members of the first team squad have experience of playing with Premier League clubs so the visit to Spurs will be far from a new occurrence.
Spurs have conceded in four of their six Premier League matches this term, and there should be plenty of interest in backing the visitors to get on the score-sheet.
Indeed, backing goals looks like a strong suggestion with Marseille netting in all of their competitive fixtures this term.
