Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Stade Vélodrome.
Marseille could have lifted the French title the last season if not for the financial mightof the Parisians. Meanwhile AC Milan won the Italian league for the first time in over more than a decade.
They were locked in a race with arch-rivals Inter Milan for the title right from the start of the season and it lasted till the very last match-day of the campaign. And at the end they had a lead of just 2 points over their eternal enemies.
They had lost just 4 times all through the campaign and defense was their hallmark through this run as well. They had left in the least number of goals of all the teams in the competition too.
It seems that they have carried forward this form into the new season and will be eager to retain their crown as well. They have made some impressive signings during this transfer window and this includes bringing back Zlatan Ibrahimovic as well.
Going on they have also been finding the back of the net consistently in the past several weeks and as a result have built some huge momentum.
Meanwhile, Marseille were clearly the best team in France the previous year disregarding PSG, and that in itself is a serious accomplishment. They did fight till the very end, even though the gap was too much to overcome.
They found the back of the net pretty consistently and during this stretch the gave some good defensive performances as well.
And on top of all that majority of previous head-to-head scorecards also have had goals in huge numbers. And taking into account all these observations expect a high-scoring thriller this Sunday.
