Paris SG v Marseille Tips
FRANCE – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 17 April 2022
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45CET
Venue: Parc des Princes (Paris).
After Champions League elimination to Real Madrid and an equally disappointing 3-0 defeat to Monaco, Paris Saint-Germain have done well to get back to winning ways. They have secured back to back victories against Lorient and Clermont Foot, scoring 11 goals in the process, while conceding just one.
However, the Mauricio Pochettino’s men are bracing themselves for a much more daunting task ahead as they take on Marseille on Sunday, at Parc des Princes. A win for the hosts could help them extend their lead at the top of the Ligue 1 table to 15 points, killing any hopes of a late title race.
PSG, though, have been far from impressive against top tier opponents in Ligue 1. They have dropped points against the likes of Nice, Monaco, Lyon and Rennes during the campaign and were notably held to a goalless draw by Marseille in the reverse fixture.
Pochettino’s men won’t be helped by the fact that the visitors are coming on the back of four successive victories in the league. While they may not be able to challenge PSG for the title, a win could put them in a healthy position as they look to secure a second-place finish come May.
Overall, we should brace ourselves for an enticing contest as these two behemoths of French football battle it out at Parc des Princes.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.45
Correct Score: 2-1
