PSG – Marseille, Ligue 1 Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR PSG - MARSEILLE
Choupo-Moting said PSG is still extremely disappointed and may not yet be able to accept this Manchester United loss in the Champions League for quite some time. The statement came after a new 4-0 victory over Dijon. PSG did not show anything that this loss has disrupted them, which is normal after all. They have not become weaker after it, nor have they lost their abilities.
Marseille is a team that is currently heading for the top 3 and is in a brilliant series. There are not much better moments than now that they meet PSG. Still, they know that PSGs are in fact champions so they can afford to lose points, even though Tuchel holds professionalism in the team at the highest possible level. Marseille has 5 wins and 1 draw in the last 5 games in Ligue 1.
Earlier in the season, PSG had a lot of troubles against Marseille, but they still won by 2-0 as guest. Now both teams are much more offensive and the match is likely to be very open. We see PSG smashing every opponent in the league and putting a huge amount of goals even without Neymar and Cavani, so that’s not going to be a problem now. Meanwhile, Marseille have all of their attacking strength, plus the new addition, Balotelli, who brought the winning goal in the last round against Nice. Prediction – Over 2.5 goals at 1.44. Alternative option – BTTS at 1.81.
- 4 of the last 5 games between the two teams ended with over 2.5 goals
- Each of the last 6 PSG games ended with over 2.5 goals
