Olympique de Marseille is welcoming PSG to Orange Velodrome in a derby match of round 24 in the French Ligue 1.
Marseille is a disaster right now, and I don’t mean only the team. The fans breached Marseille’s training facility last week and attacked players and staff because of poor results, and it was bad, which is why Marseille’s last game was postponed. Also, Marseille’s head coach left last week, and as I said, the situation is far from good. Marseille hasn’t won any of their last 6 games while winning only 1 of their last 10 games. Marseille is no longer in the top 5 in the standings, and they are now in 9th place with only 33 points, 29 scored goals, and 24 conceded goals. Honestly, the defense is Marseille’s best feature at the moment, but without the offense, there is nothing they can do. Marseille was playing against Lens in their last game, and they have had 40% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and only 69% of accurate passes. Marseille has had a 0-2 lead, but they gambled that away in the second half, and the final score of this match was 2-2. Thauvin is Marseille’s leading goalscorer with 7 goals and 7 assists. Amavi is injured, while Rongier and Milik are both still questionable for this game. All Marseille can do is to keep fighting to try and get back into the Europa League race, but it will take a lot from them to do it.
PSG is in 3rd place with 48 points at the moment, only 4 points away from the top, but PSG also has a game less than Lyon at the top. With 53 scored goals, PSG is the best offensive team in the league, but Lyon is getting dangerously close to them with 50 scored goals. PSG has lost to Lorient a week ago, but they got back on the winning track against Nimes at home 3 days ago. PSG has had 66% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and high 91% of the correct passes. Despite having only 6 shots on goal, and I say only because they usually have more, PSG was effective, and they have scored 3 goals in this game. PSG has won this match 3-0. As usual, Mbappe is scoring goals left and right, and he now has 15 goals and 6 assists, while Kean added 9 goals. Bernat, Herrera, Marquinhos, Dagba, Diallo, and Pembele are injured, while Navas and Neymar are still questionable for this game. PSG is is of the strongest teams in France, and they have been for years now, and they better stay on the winning track ahead of their big game against Barcelona in the Champions League.
Marseille’s last home game against PSG was back in 2011, and they are in terrible form at the moment. PSG is playing well, and the trends are on their side in this matchup. PSG has beaten Marseille a few weeks ago in the French Super Cup, and I think they will do it again here.
