Olympique Marseille vs Paris Saint-Germain Match Preview
Olympique Marseille will hope to put a check on their bitter foes and in-form Paris Saint-Germain when the two sides clash at the Stade Velodrome on Sunday, October 22. With the hosts picking up some domestic form in recent competitions, this Olympique Marseille vs Paris Saint-Germain fixture may turn out to be a high-scoring encounter.
Rudi Garcia’s Marseille are currently fourth on the Ligue 1 table with 17 points from nine games. That’s a whopping eight points from the table-topping all-conquering PSG but a win this weekend would throw the title race wide open. Marseille have picked a win in the midweek in Europa League and have found some form in Ligue 1 too, winning three of their last four matches. However, they also struggled at home dropping points to Angers SCO and Rennes. They have been conceding large number of goals too with six goals scored in both of their last two Ligue 1 matches. With PSG’s goal machines in town, it could prove to be a tough task for the hosts.
PSG have been the team to beat this season following the arrivals of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. Unai Emery’s side have high expectations to live up to but have lived up to their billing winning all but one of their 13 matches in all competitions. They have already scored 43 goals in these matches and established a six-point lead at the top. A goalless draw at Montpellier in Neymar’s absence and a tight 2-1 win at Dijon last weekend are aberrations and Emery would want his star-studded squad to get back to making statements.

Olympique Marseille vs Paris Saint-Germain betting tip
It is tough to keep this strong PSG attacking outfit at bay for any unit and it would be the same for Marseille. With plenty of focus on the attacking trident of PSG, there could be more goals in this fixture although we see goals from Marseille too. We predict to see goals from either sides and over 3.5 goals in this Marseille vs PSG fixture. When it comes to individual goal scorers, back the Brazilian striker Neymar to find the back of the net.
