 Paris Saint-Germain vs Marseille Tips and Prediction

Rarely a month goes by without new revelations threatening to further damage PSG’s reputation. While several core members of the club have refuted claims that Mbappe is dissatisfied and wants to leave the team, the damage may already have been done.

The latest round of rumors regarding the 23-year-future old’s surfaced just before he scored a record-tying 31st Champions League goal for Les Parisiens in a draw with Benfica. This was Christophe Galtier’s team’s third consecutive draw after losses to Reims and their Portuguese opponents.

In addition, PSG has been forced to refute allegations that they orchestrated a social media smear campaign against Mbappe, whose on-field accomplishments are currently inconsequential. However, PSG needs the 23-year-old to be at his explosive best if they are to hold onto first place in the table.

The surprise package Lorient, which could drop Galtier’s team to second with a win over Reims on Saturday, is only one point behind the defending champions, but a trip back to the Parc des Princes fortress can help lift the gloomy atmosphere in Paris.

PSG has won four of their last five Premier League games at home and has gone 26 games without a loss since losing to Lille 1-0 in April 2021. However, unlike the hosts, Marseille was able to bounce back this week from a shocking domestic defeat in the best possible way.

When Leonardo Balerdi’s own goal handed newly promoted Ajaccio all three points in a 2-1 Ligue 1 loss last weekend, an unfamiliar feeling of dread pervaded the Orange Velodrome. However, Tudor’s team had the ideal retort to that unexpected defeat in Europe.

After opening round losses to Tottenham Hotspur and Eintracht Frankfurt, Marseille appeared to be out of the Champions League. However, after back-to-back victories over Sporting Lisbon, with goals from Matteo Guendouzi and Alexis Sanchez on Wednesday, Marseille is now in good position to advance to the round of 16.

Sporting’s decision to finish the game with nine players clearly benefited Tudor’s team, who can tie PSG in points should they win Sunday’s Classique, but Sporting’s loss to Ajaccio gave Lorient the opportunity to overtake them and go into second place.

Marseille had a 10-game unbeaten streak in Ligue 1 until their loss to Ajaccio, and they have been the masters of the road thus far this season, winning each of their last three away games against Nice, Auxerre, and Angers without giving up a goal.

Marseille has gone four meetings in all competitions without defeating the capital giants since shocking PSG at the Parc des Princes to win Le Classique in September 2020, but the time is now for Les Olympiens to snap that hoodoo with the champions in disarray.


Messi’s availability may very well determine how the Sunday derby turns out, and if the deft Argentine is truly ruled out, Le Classique may not be all that classic for the home crowd.

Even though Marseille’s victories over Sporting were impressive, they should not be taken too seriously given their opponents’ lack of composure. A weak Galtier defense can still hold strong to keep Marseille in first place.
