PSG vs Marseille
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 17th March 2019
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Parc des Princes (Paris).
The biggest grudge match and the biggest match in French football will take place on Sunday night when PSG meet Marseille in Paris.
It has been a fixture that PSG have recently dominated and Marseille will be looking to end that. And beating the leaders in Paris would be the first by any club this season in the league.
PSG are in superb form with 5 wins from their last 5 are 17 points in front of Lille. And at home they still have a 100% record, played 14, won 14, so there is a lot against Marseille getting a win.
Marseille are chasing Lyon in 3rd place for a Champions League spot. The club are just 3 points behind Lyon, but if Lyon win as expected at the weekend and Marseille slip up that gap is going to be six points and be made ever harder.
Marseille are in great form with no defeats in the past six weeks but their away form is still questionable where they have lost 50% of their games. Their last away game ended in a 1-1 draw against Rennes.
The other noticeable problem for OM is that they are conceding too many goals on the road, almost averaging 2 a game.
PSG vs Marseille: Head to Head
Earlier in the season PSG won 2-0.
Marseille have not beaten PSG since 2011 going back 19 games.
There is an 80% chance to see over 2.5 goals.
PSG vs Marseille: Prediction
Marseille are going to make the same mistake as they do each season and try to go toe to toe with PSG. It is the biggest problem where the club seem to not learn that possible counter attacking play should be the order of the day, will they adapt this?
We think not, at the same time a straight PSG win offers little value so instead we will go for the handicap in PSG’s favour. They love playing Marseille even if Neymar is injured and we don’t see them losing this game, they should be able to score a few goals too.
