PSG vs Marseille preview, betting tips and prediction: A classic in Le Classique in Paris
PSG and over 3.5 goals @ 23/20 with Coral
This weekend sees Le Classique in Ligue 1. Paris Saint-Germain and Marseille have a historic rivalry in the French top flight with the former having the bragging rights in recent seasons. The injection of oil money into PSG signalled a power shift in the fixtures between the old rivals. However, Marseille did manage to hold the table-toppers to a 2-2 draw at the Velodrome earlier in the season. So the result of this is by no means a foregone conclusion.
TAKE THIS FROM CORAL!
Marseille hopes will be primarily pinned on Florian Thauvin. The former Newcastle misfit is having an incredible season, scoring 16 goals and providing 10 assists in all competitions. He provided the only goal last weekend when Marseille beat Bordeaux 1-0. The victory created a bit of distance between third-placed Marseille and fourth-placed Lyon with six points now separating the two sides.
GRAB THIS FROM BETWAY!
PSG took out their rage from the Champions League defeat to Real Madrid on Strasbourg last weekend, hammering the relegation battlers 5-2. Edinson Cavani bagged a brace while Julian Draxler, Neymar and Angel Di Maria were also on the scoresheet. The games against Marseille (they also face l’OM in the French Cup in midweek) will be more welcome tests to prepare them for that reverse fixture against the Champions League holders.
