PSG v Marseille

BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW

On Sunday night, PSG host Marseille at the Parc des Princes, in a game that could prove vital in the race for the Champions League spots in Ligue One.

PSG are 17 points clear at the top of Ligue One, having won their last six games in the French top-flight. Last time out, the Parisians recorded a 4-0 win at Dijon.

The game saw Thomas Tuchel’s side score at least two goals in their fourth successive league match. The home sides attacking prowess has led to their last four Ligue One matches producing over 2.5 goals.

The team from the French capital have been formidable of late at the Parc des Princes in Ligue One, winning their last 14 matches on home soil. PSG have also scored at least two goals in 11 of those aforementioned 14 matches.

Marseille’s league form has improved of late, as OM are now unbeaten in six Ligue One outings, having recorded five wins in the process.

Last time out, Rudi Garcia’s team recorded a 1-0 win over Nice. The win means that Marseille’s last four league games have produced under 2.5 goals. A big factor in those low scoring games has been that OM have kept clean sheets in three of their last four league matches.

Marseille’s recent away form in Ligue One has been inconsistent. However, a record of two away wins in seven matches in the French top-flight is not a great one. OM have been an attacking threat on their travels, having failed to score in just one of their last ten away games in Ligue One.

TEAM NEWS

PSG look set to be without Brazilian star Neymar and Germany international Julian Draxler due to injury. Youngster Stanley N'Soki is also likely to miss out due to injury.

Marseille have no reported injury problems heading into this clash.

Match Prediction

Despite Marseille’s recent return to form, I believe PSG will record a victory in a high scoring clash.
