Paris Saint-Germain vs Marseille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 27 October 2019
Kick-off at 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET
Venue: Parc des Princes (Paris).
PSG is back to its old tricks with utterly dominating the Ligue 1. Despite not having the luxury of fielding three major stars for the majority of the competition so far, they are placed at the top of the table, with already a five-point lead. Expectedly, they have also found the back of the net the most so far – an impressive 21 times.
This Sunday, with the home advantage, and with the return to form of their major players, the Parisians are easily expected to another routine win.
PSG vs Marseille Head-to-head (h2h)
- Thomas Tuchel’s men won the previous four games on the trot.
- 18 of the preceding 19 clashes had the Olympians conceding twice or more.
- The last time these two met on the pitch, the French champions won 3-1.
- It’s been nine years since the visitors have won at this stadium.
- The guests have managed to find the back of the net just twice in total from their prior ten combined visits here.
PSG vs Marseille Prediction
The Parisians made mincemeat out of Nice the last day on the road. The guests rode to a comfortable 1-4 win to keep their momentum going on. Meanwhile, Andre Villas-Boas’s men succumbed to a 3-1 defeat on the road against Amiens to pile pressure in this upcoming away tie.
As of now, PSG is on a five-game winning run and won 13 of the former 15 too. They sport a combined scorecard of 13-1 from their previous three fixtures combined, and at home, they have remained unbeaten in 20 of their former 22 attempts. In addition, the team scored thrice or more in four of their prior six appearances here, while keeping clean sheets in five of their last six.
On the other hand, their counterparts have just one win to boast of from their preceding six tries and were winless in their past two road trips.
Importantly, Tuchel’s men have been the alpha-dog in h2h encounters for quite a long time, and have ample stats to back the claim as well, as mentioned earlier.
As such, count on a home win this match-day in the Ligue 1.
