Marseille vs PSG Match Preview & Team News
Marseille is in very poor form as the hosts booked only one win in the previous ten games in all competitions. They slipped down to 9th position, being 15 points behind their upcoming rivals. The home side booked only two points in the last five rounds, and they need to get back on the winning track as soon as possible. Andres Villas-Boas got sacked after this winless run, while players’ confidence is very low. However, the hosts can still fight for the Europa League spot as they are four points behind Rennes. Florian Thauvin and the lads need to improve their home record, as they celebrated only four times as Stade Velodrome so far in the campaign. We will see if recent changes can have a positive effect on this famous club.
PSG was confident against Nimes in the previous round, and they remained third on the table. The visitors are three points behind Lille, and the title race will be very exciting. Neymar and the lads lost on the road to struggling Lorient last weekend, despite the 2:1 lead. The defending champions cannot allow themselves to spill important points like that. Mauricio Pocchetino’s team is clinical in front of the oppositions’ net, with 53 goals scored. On the other hand, their defense is the tightest in Ligue 1. PSG needs to be more consistent when playing away from home, as they celebrated six times in 11 outings. Lille, Lyon, and Monaco are serious challengers, and the visitors mustn’t be complacent.
