Marseille hosts Paris Saint-Germain in round 11 of French Ligue 1. The match will be played on Sunday, October 24th at Stade Velodrome (Marseille).
In the middle of last season, Jorge Sampaoli headed Olympique de Marseille. In a short period of time, the Argentine failed to realize all the ideas. The team took the 5th place and, thus, made it only to the group stage of the Europa League. The start of the 2021/2022 season turned out to be good. Now the Olympians are among the top five teams of the Ligue 1 standings. They have every chance to overtake Lens and move up to the second place, as the gap is only one point. In addition, the Blue-and-Whites have one more game in reserve. Marseille players scored 18 goals. This is the second-best indicator in the French championship.
Paris Saint-Germain is the leader of French Ligue 1. The team scored 27 points and has the best attack in the championship. The Parisians have scored 24 goals. At first glance, everything seems to be fine, but in fact, a lot of star football players fell into the hands of Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentinean does not know how to manage them and how to form an efficient and balanced team. As a result, PSG cannot be called a stable club now. Victories have not been easy lately, and the 2-0 defeat to Rennes a week earlier only confirms the fact of the Parisians' problems. Last weekend, they managed to gain a comeback victory over Angers SCO at home. Mbappe snatched three points in the 87th minute by converting a penalty.
Marseille will play with the support of the native stands. Dimitri Payet is in good shape: five goals and four assists. Sampaoli instills attacking football in his charges. PSG has problems. Experiments in defense do not give Pochettino results. Diallo, Kimpembe, Kehrer, and Dagba are not a reliable defensive line. Sometimes even the presence of Marquinhos does not help. In every second match, the Parisians concede at least one goal. Moreover, they had a very important and tough Champions League home game against RB Leipzig in the midweek (3-2). Perhaps Pochettino will rotate the lineup in the championship match. We think the hosts will be able to upset the opponents’ goalkeeper at least once.
