As we already mentioned, Marseille beat PSG back in September 1-0 (Florian Thauvin) in a weird game as five total players were ejected at the very end, including Neymar, Leandro Paredes and Dario Benedetto.
Last season, PSG beat Marseille 4-0 in their only matchup as the season got suspended due to the COVID-19 situation. Both Mauro Icardi and Kylian Mbappe scored twice for the home side.
PSG have won seven of the last 10 games against Marseille. During that span, the reigning champions have a 7-2-1 record and they managed to finish with a clean sheet in four of those games.

Why bet on Marseille?
Marseille are in a must-win situation as they haven’t won in their last five Ligue 1 games. Right now, they are in ninth place with 33 points (9-6-6), 18 points away from the top spot, but they can still fight for a UEFA Champions League/Europa League ticket for next season.
More recently, Marseille drew 2-2 against Lens. Prior to that, they lost three games in a row, including a 3-1 against another French powerhouse, AS Monaco.
Marseille have scored 29 goals in 21 games (1.3 goals per game) and they have allowed 24. Individually, Florian Thauvin has been sensational; he leads the team in goals with seven and in assists, also with seven. He’s followed by Dario Benedetto with four goals.
Back in January, Marseille lost the French Supercup against PSG (2-1), but they proved that they can compete at the highest level. They also drew against LOSC Lille (1-1) and Lyon (1-1), the current two teams domestically.
Regarding the Ligue 1, Marseille have a 4-3-3 record at home (they have won one game more on the road). They also have a 4-6 (against the spread) and 5-5 (over/under) records when playing at the Velodrome.
Why Bet on PSG?
PSG have lost just one of their last 10 games (3-2 against Lorient). More recently, they beat Nimes 3-0, and that was their third clean sheet in their last four games.
The reigning champions are in third place with 48 points (15-3-5), three less than LOSC Lille (first place). PSG and LOSC Lille drew 0-0 back in December.
As expected, PSG lead the Ligue 1 scoring chart with 53, while they have allowed just 14 goals in 23 goals (also best in the league). Defensively, Keylor Navas (goalkeeper) has been sensational, while offensively Kylian Mbappe leads the team and the league with 15 goals.
Mbappe is followed by Moise Kean with nine goals and Neymar with six. Angel Di Maria leads the team in assists with seven (second best in the league).
Mauricio Pochettino replaced Thomas Tuchel a few weeks ago, but he already won a title (French Supercup), and the players have embraced his idea and system very well.
PSG have a 6-2-3 record when playing on the road; they also have a 4-6-1 (against the spread) and 4-5-2 (over/under). In their last 10 games against Marseille, PSG managed to finish with a clean sheet in four games and failed to score in just two.
Discarded Players and Projected Line-ups
No Valentin Rongier for Marseille. The midfielder is injured.
Marseille’s expected lineup is Steve Mandanda, Pol Lirola, Lucas Perrin, Duje Caleta-Car, Hiroki Sakai, Florian Thauvin, Boubacar Kamara, Alvaro Gonzalez, Dimitri Payet, Arkadiusz Milik and Valere Germain.

PSG’s expected lineup is Keylor Navas, Colin Dagba, Thilo Kehrer, Presnel Kimpembe, Layvin Kurzawa, Angel Di Maria, Idrissa Gueye, Leandro Paredes, Pablo Sarabia, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.
Pick: PSG to win
Over/Under: 3 goals Marseille (9-6-6) | PSG (15-3-5)
PSG average 2.3 goals per game, while Marseille average 1.2 goals per game. Four of the last seven games between Marseille and PSG went over three goals, and PSG won three of those games (the other one finished with a tie).
Two of the last three PSG games went over three goals, while the last two Marseille games also went over three goals.
Kylian Mbappe is on fire, and Marseille have Thauvin and Milik (top scorer in the Italian Serie A not so far ago).
Pick: Over 3 goals
