Paris SG vs Marseille - 17/03/2019 Preview

Paris SG will face Marseille at Parc des Princes, in Paris, in French Ligue 1 29th Round. Paris SG against Marseille is always the match with big interest after their previous matches in French Ligue 1. Review our thoughts on this match here below.

 

Paris SG

Paris Saint Germain in total, finished the season, as they were kicked off by Manchester United from Champions League. Now they still can fight for Coupe de France trophy and save their position in Ligue 1. The Parisians have 17 points difference and 1 game in reserve between nearest chaser LOSC Lille in the highest French league. PSG has incredible statistics of home games since they have scored 50 and conceded only 5 goals in 14 games. At Parc des Princes they won all games and have not conceded more than 1 goal from the opponent. Parisians should be angry before the game with Marseille and will play aggressively and confidently against one of the strongest teams in France.

Hopefully, we will see Edinson Cavani who’s back from injury. Unfortunately, J. Draxler, Neymar and Rabiot and N’Soki will miss the match due to injuries.

The hosts this season shows themselves from a very strong side in the finishing scoring chances, counter attacks, creating chances using through balls and creating scoring chances. Unfortunately, the team has weak sides in avoiding offside, aerial duels and stopping opponents from creating chances. It is very likely that the team will dominate in this game, will play neatly and accurately, will attack and shoot very often.

 

Marseille

Olympique de Marseille is far away from their best for this season, although, they stand at 4th place and still are fighting for getting into Champions League next year. Lyon at the 3rd place has 3 points difference with Olympians. They have strengthened their squad by M. Balotelli on a free transfer from Nice, and Italian already scored 5 goals for them. At Stade Velodrome they look much more confidently, than playing away matches, as they lost 7 in last 14 games. In total, Olympique de Marseille is much weaker than PSG and will try to do everything to prove the opposite.

The Olympians have all players fit and ready to play the French Giants in a very important match for getting 3 points.

This season, Marseille is playing far away from his best football, however, they are strong at attacking set pieces, attacking down the wings and aerial duels. Unfortunately, they are facing troubles at defending counter attacks. Very likely that The Phocaeans will play defensive and aggressive football, and try to counter-attack very often.

 

H2H

Marseille won against Paris SG in far 2011 year at Stade Velodrome. That was their last win against Parisians till now, as they failed to win in already in 18 games in different competitions.
