Paris SG – Marseille : Preview & Prediction
We were expecting a winning Olympique Marseille at the Parc last Sunday, but it was quickly put out by a PSG at once precise and involved. Best on all lines, Emery’s men sent a first message to the Olympians who had done better than jostling them (2-2) at the Velodrome a few months earlier. If the injury of Neymar (ankle) has tarnished the balance of the game Paris SG side, we say that Marseille – outdated and impotent offensively – will have to raise its level of play considerably this Wednesday, on pain of taking a volley. A place in the semi-finals of the Coupe de France is at stake: competition confiscated for three years by the Parisians. So, this second Classic in the space of a few days will give birth to a different scenario?
PSG was much too easy (3-0) against OM this Sunday in the league. On a Senate pace, Unai Emery’s group could raise the intensity on Wednesday.
Paris has played 18 games on its grounds this season in all competitions, for as many victories …
The PSG – three-time defending champion – has won its last 21 matches of the Coupe de France, without having had to dispute any extension.
Marseille has been dominated in 12 of the last 14 confrontations, for two draws.
Paris will be deprived of Neymar Wednesday but showed Sunday how he was moving on a different planet than an OM yet on the return. Titled in the competition for three years, Cavani and his teammates will not give up their Coupe de France at the Parc des Princes against their historical rival. Still not at the level, Marseille will be inclined logically in the capital Wednesday.
