PSG vs Marseille – Ligue 1: Despite this being one of the matches with most history of the last decades of French football
The match between Paris SG and Marseille, loses, currently, because it is not a decisive match regarding the Ligue 1’s title.
However, it doesn’t lose its importance because of that, if we look onto the moments of form that each of these teams is on at the end of February.
In Paris, all they think about is Madrid. An entire season building on a structure to be solid on the European context and a 1-3 loss against Real Madrid leaves the team very near to a failure on the Champions League.
They still have to play the 2nd leg, which, we can imagine, should be sucking the energies out of the board, technical staff and roster, in search for a solution that would give more life to Paris SG, but those have been hard to find.
In Marseille, in turn, the situation is much more pleasant. The team is walking safely towards a top 3 finish,
which ensures them the minimum objective of returning to the Champions League, benefiting still of a clear path on the Europa League, where they have just eliminated SC Braga,
on a knockout tie where they’ve shown to be a very superior team, having Athletic Bilbao as their next opponent, which is far from being a “bogeyman” for Rudi Garcia’s squad.
PSG vs Marseille – Betting Tip and Prediction:
For this match, despite this being a match that doesn’t mean much in terms of the league table, Paris SG is expected to maintain the preparations for Europe away from this match, focusing on this encounter.
At the same time, Marseille currently has a super high potential to create problems to the team from the capital, that didn’t count with Neymar during some of this week’s practices, which leaves him doubtful for this match.
The question of the starting line-ups to utilize by each manager here is important, even because the teams will meet again next Wednesday, on a Coupe de France match.
