PSG vs Marseille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 13th September 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Parc des Princes (Paris).
There is no bigger game in Ligue 1 than this one, PSG against Marseille and the rivalry between the teams and the fans has become legendary. This game will close out the weekend’s action in France.
But this game is going to feel very different. There will be limited fans in the stadium but mostly it will be empty. But this isn’t the only problem. Up to 7 PSG players which include Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Marquinhos are in self isolation after reportedly getting Covid-19. This has greatly depleted the team.
This was underlined when they lost their first league game of the season away at Lens by 1-0.
Marseille usually come off 2nd best against PSG and this game looks like it could be their most realistic chance of getting a rare win over them, and in Paris it would be the icing on the cake. Marseille have managed just one game so far, and it was an entertaining one as they beat Brest 3-2 away from home.
PSG vs Marseille: Head to Head
- Last season PSG won this fixture 4-0.
- In the last six meetings PSG has scored 19 goals against Marseille.
- Marseille have not beaten PSG in the league since 2011 and in Paris since 2010.
- There is an 80% chance to see over 2.5 goals.
PSG vs Marseille: Prediction
Normally it would be difficult to go against PSG, a better team, the champions of France and it’s been a decade since Marseille won at this stadium.
But in light of every thing that has happened Marseille has a great chance to win the game. They are around 3.50 for the win, but of course PSG still have some quality players who will put in a shift for coach Thomas Tuchel at home.
This is why it might be worth backing Marseille on the handicap so the draw will be to our advantage too. Both teams to score also looks like being on the cards.
