Key-Facts – PSG v Marseille

  • Le Classique is the biggest rivalry game in France and there is plenty of bad blood between the two clubs

PSG Preview

PSG have had the league sewn up from a long way out and it’s no surprise that they are strolling towards their sixth title in seven years. Their lead is 17 points over second placed Lille and it’s a matter of if not when. Despite continuing the club’s domestic dominance, Thomas Tuchel is another in a list of coaches who has been unable to crack Champions League curse for PSG and they will still be licking their wounds after their latest collapse. The suggestion is he will continue in his role beyond this season despite the early exit in Europe and will be determined to finish it with a league and cup double. Tuchel will also be aware of the need to finish the campaign strongly and in form with a view to building into the new season and that means winning games such as this in some style. The Parisians come into the match having won their last six in the league, recovering from their only Ligue 1 defeat of the season away to Lyon at the beginning of February. That’s just one of three games they have dropped points in this summer and it’s fair to say they will be hoping it’s the last time, as well, with 10 matches to go. PSG will also be hoping to continue their 100% home record in the league.

Marseille Preview

It’s never dull in Marseille and this season has been absolutely no different. A pretty disastrous first half of the season in both domestic and European football had coach Rudi Garcia clinging on to his job and calling out certain players in public for not performing. An early exit in the Europa League and the club struggling at the bottom end of Ligue 1 is thankfully now something of a distant memory as OM have moved stylish up the table of late and are in contention for a Champions League spot. It’s looking increasingly likely that it will be between themselves and Lyon for third place and entry into the qualifiers for next season. It’s a gap of three points currently but considering where they have come it’s definitely a position that Garcia would have taken. Heading to the French capital on Sunday, Marseille are unbeaten in their last six matches – winning five of them. Although they are games you would expect them to triumph in, it’s easily their best run of the season. This weekend’s game represents their hardest away game left this season so any points gained from it would undoubtedly be a bonus.

PSG v Marseille Betting Advice

Le Classique is the biggest single game in French football these days and it’s a rivalry that has grown through the years. More recently, it’s down to the Qatari millions that have been flooded into PSG and Marseille regarding themselves as a more traditional club steeped in history. The visitors’ supporters took great delight in PSG’s Champions League exit and you can be sure that will not have been missed by the French champions who will be out to show once again that they are a class above anything else, domestically.

PSG were comfortable when winning the first meeting between these two in October and although Marseille have improved since then, all the signs are that the hosts will be too strong once again. Their home record is phenomenal in the league with 14 wins, 50 goals scored and just five conceded. It is dominant and when compared to Marseille’s away form (five wins in 14 matches) it’s hard to make a case for anything other than another win at the Parc des Princes for PSG. Ten of their 14 home wins have been by at least two goals and with their motivation levels increased following the Champions League exit, it’s a confident selection for them to cover a goal handicap once again.
