PSG v Marseille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 25th February 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Parc des Princes (Paris)
The biggest fixture in French football will take place on Sunday night when PSG welcome their eternal rivals Marseille to Paris. This match has traditionally meant that France stops for 90 minutes to tune in and watch and this season will be no different.
PSG are 12 points in the lead and 13 points in front of 3rd placed Marseille. Whilst PSG look like champions-elect other teams around them will still think that if they lose this match and go on a bad run there might just be a chance to catch them up. For Marseille this is sure to be their final chance to go for the league.
However PSG has a fantastic record at home where they are unbeaten and have a 100% win rate record. They have been immense this season and they will be the big odds on favourites.
Marseille have had a terrific season so far and in midweek they qualified for the quarter finals of the Europa League after defeating Braga over 2 legs, they will now play Athletic Bilbao. Marseille have not lost a game in Ligue 1 in 2 months and away from home they have lost only twice this season and are currently on a 3 game unbeaten streak.
PSG v Marseille: Head to Head
- Marseille has not won this fixture either home or away for 15 games going back to 2011
- PSG have scored 11 goals in the last 3 meetings
- 5 out of the last 7 games played at PSG has ended with the correct score of 2-0 to PSG
PSG v Marseille: Prediction
Marseille will give everything in this game but we must remember that PSG are simply too good at home. Plus Marseille had to travel to Portugal in the week when PSG had some rest time. PSG are unbackable for the win so we will look into different markets.
