Marseille vs PSG
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 28th October 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Vélodrome (Marseille).
It doesn’t get bigger than the Marseille-PSG rivalry, and on Sunday evening all eyes on Europe will be on this game. Two hugely successful teams will lock horns and what should be a fantastic game of football that really could go either way.
Marseille know they won’t win the league this season- PSG have in theory got this one wrapped up with 10 wins out of 10. Marseille are already 11 points behind, but perhaps there is a small glimmer of hope, that will be gone if they lose this game. Really this match is not about trying to win the league for Marseille but to make a statement against the powerhouse of PSG, and they this chance at home.
Marseille are in decent form with back to back wins coming into this game, although they did lose at home in the Europa League on Thursday going down 3-1 to Lazio. In the league Marseille are unbeaten at home.
PSG are just rock solid superb in the league. They played in midweek in the Champions League and drew at home 2-2 to Napoli, this was a decent result given that they were losing 2-1 as the game was almost over. PSG have the best away record in the league with 4 wins out of 4, but this will be their first real test on the road.
Marseille vs PSG: Head to Head
- Last season this match ended 2-2.
- Marseille have not won at home v PSG since 2011.
- PSG have scored 10 goals against Marseille in their last 3 games.
Marseille vs PSG: Prediction
We will back Marseille to end PSG’s fantastic run of games, although it will be very hard for them. PSG have not been completely convincing against quality teams away from home such as Liverpool, and a draw against Napoli was not great.
Marseille are not up to the task to win these games when playing away from home, but at home they have a great chance and are like a different team. We must remember that all PSG fans are banned from travelling to this game also.
