Marseille – Paris SG Preview

  • This will be the 101st edition of ‘Le Classique’, and the stakes couldn’t be higher, even at this relatively early stage. Combined, Marseille (ten) and PSG (nine) boast 19 French titles, and with the teams deadlocked on 32 wins apiece in Ligue 1 H2Hs, every fan in attendance at the Orange Vélodrome will expect a fight to the finish.
  • Despite boasting home advantage and a game in-hand, Marseille’s title credentials already look tenuous. Thursday night’s 0-0 stalemate against Lazio in European action made it just one win in six competitive games (D2, L3), in a sequence that also saw Marseille’s first home defeat of the campaign.
  • Marseille have also failed to score in four of their last six matches in all competitions. This only further fuels the belief that Marseille are about to go 13 points adrift of PSG in their efforts to gain outright kingdom over the all-time title stakes.
  • PSG will be highly confident here, after Lionel Messi’s UEFA Champions League rescue job in midweek. His second-half brace turned a 2-1 deficit into a 3-2 victory, and personified the character that has seen PSG record nine wins in ten league games.
  • The Parisians already look like champions-elect, though their solitary defeat across the last eight H2H clashes (W7, L1) ultimately proved crucial to them losing the title in 2020/21. That match also showed the ugly side of this rivalry, producing 14 yellow cards and five reds in total.
  • Players to watch: Dimitri Payet provided the assist for a Marseille winner against PSG last season, and the Frenchman has four goal involvements in his last two Ligue 1 outings (2G, 2A). Meanwhile, Moroccan road warrior Achraf Hakimi has five goal contributions in PSG’s last four away wins (3G, 2A).
  • Hot stat: PSG have seen eight of their 12 Ligue 1 away wins this calendar year come by a 2+ goal margin.
