An exciting encounter could be on the cards when Marseille and PSG square off in a French Ligue 1 fixture at the Orange Velodrome. The Parisians are playing with some confidence at the moment and will fancy their chances against Marseille.

Marseille are in the middle of a slump after claiming just one win from their last six matches across all competitions. They warmed up for the visit of PSG with a 0-0 draw against Lazio in the Europa League on Thursday.

On the domestic front, things have also not been particularly smooth for Marseille, although they claimed a 4-1 victory over Lorient in their previous Ligue 1 fixture. That victory ended a run of three matches without a win in Ligue 1 for Jorge Sampaoli’s men.

Marseille head into Sunday’s clash with two defeats in their last three Ligue 1 matches, including a 3-2 home loss to Lens. Defending appears to be a major problem for the hosts, who have conceded six goals in their last three league matches.

PSG's quest to reclaim the Ligue 1 title appears to be going well as they have suffered just one defeat in 10 matches this season. They have a nine point lead over closest challengers Lens and defeated Angers 2-1 in their previous league fixture.

The Parisians are not only dominating in France, they are also topping their group in the Champions League. Mauricio Pochettino’s men travel to Marseille off the back if a 3-2 victory over German side RB Leipzig on Tuesday.

Another positive for PSG is Lionel Messi, who appears to be returning to his best form after netting a brace in the win over Leipzig. The Argentine forward is still without a goal in Ligue 1 but appears to be forming a good understanding with Kylian Mbappe and could get off the mark this weekend.

How the bookies view it

PSG are considered overwhelming favourites by the bookies and are priced at 13/19 by SBK to claim the win. Despite playing at home, Marseille are considered outsiders at 4/1 with betway while bet365 is offering odds of 10/3 for a draw.

Recent head to head

PSG often come out on top in this fixture and have won seven of their last eight matches against Marseille. The Parisians did the double over their rivals last season with the clash at the Orange Velodrome ending 2-0 thanks to goals from Kylian Mbappe and Mauro Icardi.

Players to watch

Dimitri Payet is often the biggest attacking threat for Marseille and remains their top scorer with five goals. The midfielder appears to have gone off the boil slightly in recent weeks but could still be worth a punt to find the net at 11/4 with SBK.

Lionel Messi is yet to get off the mark for PSG in Ligue 1 but will be feeling confident heading into Sunday’s match following his brace in the Champions League. The Argentine forward is priced at 27/25 by Unibet to find the net in Marseille.

Anything else catch the eye?

Marseille and PSG often like to play on the front foot and given the quality in both attacks, goals can be expected here. Over 3.5 goals is priced at 16/11 by Sport Nation while SBK is offering odds of 6/11 for over 2.5 goals.

Given their fine record in this fixture, PSG could be tipped to earn a win and over 2.5 goals at 6/5 with William Hill.
