Marseille vs PSG
French Ligue 1
Date: 26 February 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stade Orange Velodrome (Marseille).
A real buzz is expected in and around Stade Orange Velodrome on Sunday evening when the top two sides in the Ligue 1 table are set to lock horns in Matchday No 25.
The outcome of this clash may have big implications on the potential title race because a win for the hosts here would move them within just two points of leaders PSG.
Both teams have celebrated wins in exciting high-scoring thrillers against Toulouse and Lille respectively seven days ago.
Marseille made it three wins on the spin across competitions by beating Toulouse 2-3 on the road. Head coach Igor Tudor, however, can’t be overly excited about his team’s defensive showings because Les Phocians left too much space behind for Toulouse’ forwards on the occasion.
Marseille kept just one clean sheet in the previous four outings across competitions. They are now set to face the league’s deadliest attacking line and we are not quite confident regarding their chances of keeping things quiet at the back on Sunday.
PSG have not been meticulous defensively of late either. The visitors completed a miraculous late comeback in a 4-3 win over Lille last weekend at Parc des Princes.
Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi came up with two late goals to secure a huge three-pointer for Chris Galtier’s squad against his former team.
Marseille vs PSG Head-to-head
- These two teams battled it out in the last 16 round of Coupe de France earlier this month as Marseille celebrated a 2-1 victory at Stade Orange Velodrome.
- PSG had earlier been on a streak of four wins and a draw in the last five head to head encounters.
- Just two of the previous five H2H meetings between these rivals provided goals at both ends.
Marseille vs PSG Prediction
PSG haven’t kept a clean sheet in seven straight games in all competitions. They have allowed at least two goals in each of the last three domestic outings.
