Marseille vs PSG by 20legend
This match could surely be the one to watch as the end of the season is approaching. The standings are very close after 30 matches played. With Lyon (61 points) winning yesterday in round 31, PSG is 2nd (59 points), Marseille is 3rd (57 points), Monaco is 4th (54 points) and St Etienne is 5th (53 points).
Most people will probably make PSG as the favorite, having finally made their way to the top after a terrible start of the season. However, Marseille or Lyon will certainly not give in without a fight. In addition PSG have also Champions League to think about.
I think that the international break came at a very good time for Marseille as their coach, Marcelo Bielsa, often has a tendency to give his players very little rest. Marseille have got 2-2-1 and 14:6 on goal difference in their last five games. Abdel Barrada (9/1) is long-term injured, N’Koulou is doubtful while Gianelli Imbula (30/2) is suspended to this game. However, they have also been very strong at Stade Vellodrome this season with 11-2-2 and 30:13 on goal difference.
PSG has finally reached the top of Ligue 1 and they will certainly be giving their best to stay there. They have won five in a row against today’s opponent. Zlatan scored a hat-trick in their 3-1 win against Lorient before the international break. Previous to that they lost against Bordeaux (3-2) and beat Chelsea in the Champions League knockout stage. However, thing is not always as they should be within the club. Zlatan has been in focus for some negative reasons in the past weeks and the harmony among the players is not always on top.
5-3-7 away from home is clearly the reason why PSG has struggled so long to reach the top. The positive news is that Lucas Moura (29/7) is the only missing player for them.
There is no doubt about the meaning of three points tonight. A setback here could make it impossible to take the 1st place this year, while a win could give the vital gap that could lead to silverware. Marseille has been very strong at home, while PSG has been quite variable away from home. However, the quality of their offensive players could very well be enough to get the win tonight. I see the alternative of both teams to score as a very likely result tonight, given what’s at stake for both teams here.
