PSG vs Marseille
French Super Cup
Date: Wednesday, 13 January 2021
Kick-Off at 20.00 UK
Venue: Stade Bollaert Delelis, Lens.
It’s time for either PSG or Marseille to win the first piece of silverware this season.
French Super Cup finals are scheduled to be played on Wednesday night on neutral venue in Lens, and we are surely going to see a lot of fire on the pitch. Olympique have managed to cause a big upset and beat the Saints in Ligue 1 this season.
Can they do something similar again?
Bookies are heavily going in favour of PSG who just earned their first win under new head manager Mauricio Pochettino against Brest. However, things are not looking so smooth for reigning French champions in this new campaign.
PSG vs Marseille Head-to-head
- If we exclude abovementioned loss, PSG were victorious against Marseille five meetings in which they conceded only one goal.
- There were 55 duels in the past, and Saints have convincing 28-16 lead in terms of victories.
- Six out of the last eight times when these opponents locked horns game ended with three goals total or more.
PSG vs Marseille Prediction
After securing six straight victories in Ligue 1 from mid-October to early December, Olympique Marseille’s form has diminished quickly.
The Sky Blues have collected only five points from the last five divisional games and slipped to 6th place on the table. Their title hopes are far from over, but situation could have been so much different if recent duels versus Angers and Rennes didn’t end with a loss.
The biggest threat for PSG’s defense is coming from 27-years old striker Florian Thauvin who scored six goals in Ligue 1.
Mauricio Pochettino is once again having a headache when it comes to injured players. Rafinha, Juan Bernat, Paredes and Kimpembe are sidelined and unable to help the team to win this trophy.
After the initial disappointment and 1-1 draw against St Etienne, Argentine coach earned his first win last weekend against Brest with a convincing 3-0 win. We are expecting a narrow contest against Marseille, but still Saints should win the trophy.
