Marseille v PSG Preview, Ligue 1, Sunday 6th October 2013

Marseille have started the new season in decent fashion having won 5, drawn 3 and lost just 1 of their opening eight games played and with a haul of 17pts, they currently occupy 3rd place in the Ligue 1 table and are only one point behind both Monaco and PSG.

Sunday night’s game presents a huge opportunity for Elie Baup’s side to move above PSG if they can win the game, but the midweek 3-0 defeat in the Champions League against Borussia Dortmund will no doubt have dented the confidence of the players, especially with their opponents having won in convincing style against Benfica in their Champions League midweek match.

PSG currently remain unbeaten so far this season and Laurent Blanc’s side will be fully aware that victory in this game on sunday night would see them move 4pts clear of their hosts in the league table. An excellent performance midweek against Benfica in the Champions League will have every player in the squad brimming with confidence as they prepare for this game and everyone involved will feel that it is a game they can win.

Marseille v PSG Recent Form

Marseille: L D W W L


PSG have the clear advantage on the recent form stats having won 4 of their last 5 matches played. Marseille have only managed 2 victories in their last 5 games played of which they have lost 2.

Marseille v PSG Match Betting Odds Market.

Marseille have the all important home advantage and have only lost 1 game so far this season, but the online bookmakers don’t seem to rate their chances in this game as their current best price of 17/5 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) clearly indicates.

The Draw has only happened once in the previous five matches played between the two sides, but there really is not much between them this season and only one point seperates them in the league table so maybe a small cover on the draw could be sensible option at current odds of 12/5 with Sky Bet (£10 Free Bets No Deposit Required for New Customers).

PSG will be extremely confident of winning this game on sunday night having played so well in their midweek Champions League game and with them also having a dominance over their opponents in recent season’s their current best price of 19/20 with Coral (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) will certainly attract plenty of attention from punters.

Marseille v PSG Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

An exciting game in prospect, but one the away side are expected to win in my opinion especially if they play like they did midweek in the Champions League game against Benfica.

Marseille lost 3-0 in their Champions League match against Borussia Dortmund and that will certainly have had an effect on the players confidence as they prepare for this game. Add that to their awful record against PSG over recent season’s in which they have failed to win any of their previous five meetings it does seem a very unlikely event to see the hosts winning this one.

The goal stats suggest a low scoring game with only one or two goals to be scored and with PSG having scored exactly 2 goals in each of the last five meetings played between the two side, it might pay dividends to get a small bet on the correct scoreline of 0-2 along with other related betting markets like Under 2.5 Goals, Both Teams to Score NO and Time of First Goal.
