Marseille placed fourth on the table with 17 points have won five and lost two games out of the 9 games played so far. Marseille carries a run of four straight defeats to PSG and will hope to change things entering Sunday’s clash against the league leaders.
In their last French Ligue 1 match, Marseille held Strasbourg to a 3-3 draw with Dimitri Payet scoring early into the game. Morgan Sanson scored the second but it was Kostas Mitroglou’s goal that saved the day for the team.
Marseille is fresh off a 2-1 victory over Guimaraes in a Champions League matchup. Lucas Ocampos and Maxime Lopez netted once in the win. Full-back Patrice Evra was pulled out in the second half of that game due to illness but boss Rudi Garcia has said he clear to play on Sunday.
Captain Dimitri Payet has hinted that Sunday’s Paris St Germain clash is going to be pride and honor.
Ligue 1 leaders PSG are unbeatable in the season playing nine games. Attacking talents of Neymar, Edinson Cavani, and Kylian Mbappe are playing exceptional football.
Also, Thomas Meunier is in great shape as he scored twice in last Saturday’s 2-1 win away at Dijon.
Defender Thiago Silva remains doubtful for Sunday’s match although coach Unai Emery has said that he is training almost as normal as before coming off a thigh strain.
