In the 27th round of Ligue 1, Marseille will host the leaders of the championship, PSG, at Velodrome. The hosts with 39 points still have chances to participate in European competitions next season, given that the gap from the top 6 is only 3 points. However, Marseille faces a tough competition from near placed Rennes (39 points) and Reims (38 points), who are also inclined to fight for the vacant places. PSG comfortably occupies the first place with 59 points and having a comfortable advantage of 12 points over the second-placed Brest. The main concern for the current leaders is the upcoming match of the Champions League against Barcelona. In the first-round match, Marseille did not stand a chance, losing 4-0 to the Parisians.

Marseille vs PSG Preview 

Marseille Preview

After the arrival of Jean-Louis Gasset as another new coach for Marseille this season, things were initially nearly-perfect: 5 consecutive wins with a goal difference of 18-3. After this, the team faced a 2 consecutive losing streak, and while losing to Villareal in the second round of Europa League playoff still allowed Marseille to go further, being 2-0 down to Rennes, the key competitor in the tables, looked disturbing, as Marseille did not show any signs of resilience. With the team’s resources being relatively scarce, it is an open question whether Marseille will be able to fight in the tight rivalry within Ligue 1 and continue its run in Europa League, where the team will soon face Benfica.

PSG Preview 

PSG does not have problems with the squad and Luis Enrique even allows himself to bench his main star, Kylian Mbappe, in certain matches. PSG is unbeaten for 24 matches in all competitions and comes as favourites in the upcoming clash with Barcelona in the Champions League. In this situation it is quite common to see that the worst enemy for PSG is themselves, as it happened in matches against Reims (2-2) or Rennes (1-1), where the team couldn’t find concentration. With 4 consecutive wins in the head to head matches in the framework of Ligue 1, PSG comes to Marseille as favourites.
