Olympique Marseille hosts PSG
Olympique Marseille hosts PSG at the Stade Velodrome in one of the big derbies of French football. We are going to preview it in this article during our football betting tips this weekend.
These are turbulent times for Olympique Marseille. The club’s fans stormed the base and made clear how dissapointed are with the team’s performances. Because of this the manager Andre Vilas-Boas left the club and now Marseille are managed by the caretaker Nasser Larguet. The match against PSG is going to be his first one since replacing Vilas-Boas.
Olympique Marseile find themselves at 9th place in the standings with 33 points won so far. The club also have two games in hand compared to the other, so they could make some jump. But in their last five matches Marseille are not very good – they won just two points, which caused the agression among the fans.
PSG need to win at any cost here. The champions are third in the Ligue 1 standings and they are three points behind the leader Lille. For the manager Mauricio Pochettino it’s a tricky situation because his team must catch up with the others.
In the previous round the champions scored their 15th win for the season. Pochettino’s boys hosted Nimes at the Parc des Princes and made a solid effort for a 3-0 win. Di Maria and Sarabia scored in the first half while Kylian Mbappe added the third one in the middle of the second half.
That’s the football betting tips this weekend for the Ligue 1 derby betwee Olympique Marseille and PSG. It remains to be seen how Marseille will do after what happened in the last two weeks. On theory this could be a very easy game for the champions who can use the situation in their own favour.
