Paris Saint-Germain and Olympique de Marseille are clashing at Stade Bollaert-Delelis in the French Super Cup finals.
PSG has the new head coach, and they have gotten their first win this past weekend in Ligue 1. PSG was playing against Brest at home in that game, and they were the dominant team with 60% of ball possession, 11 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and high 91% of the correct passes. PSG got ahead in the 16th minute, and it took them a while to score another goal. With two more quick goals in the 81st and the 83rd minute, PSG has won this game 3-0. PSG is still in the title race in Ligue 1, and they are now in 2nd place with 39 points. Bernat, Neymar, Kimpembe, Dagba, and Kehrer are all injured for PSG at the moment. There have been a lot of transfer rumors in PSG this week, including Mbappe leaving because he disagrees with the new coach’s ideas, Neymar extending his contract, and PSG making an offer to Messi, but nothing concrete just yet. PSG is probably the best team in France over the last decade, and they are the biggest favorite in every French competition every season, including this one.
After a minor slump in December, Marseille has started this year well, and they have one win and one draw in their last 2 games. In the Ligue 1 standings, Marseille is now in 6th place with 32 points, but they are still one of the best defensive teams in the league with 16 conceded goals. In their last game against Dijon on the road, Marseille has had 59% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 79% of the correct passes. Marseille has created a few good chances, but they weren’t able to finish any of them, and this game ended in a 0-0 draw. Sanson, Amavi, and Henrique are injured for Marseille, and they will most likely miss this game. Marseille is a good team, but they lack offensive options, and the Champions League spot is slipping away from their hands with every passing game. There is still a half of the season left to be played, and there is plenty of time for Marseille to get back on track, but they need to improve their roster in this transfer window, and their overall game.
Marseille has beaten PSG in round 3 of this season, but that was way back when PSG was struggling. Before this game, Marseille has beaten PSG on the road back in 2010. PSG is the better team here, and with the new head coach, their defense looks better. I don’t think two games in a row between these two teams will end with less than 3 goals, which is why I will take PSG and goals here.
