Match preview

The most up to date instalment of Le Classique sees Marseille and Paris Saint-Germain take on in the last 16 of the Sports car de France at the Orange Velodrome on Wednesday evening.

The hosts' purple patch lately ended in a 3-1 defeat to Nice, while Les Parisiens came from behind to sink Toulouse 2-1 at the weekend.

Marseille head instructor Igor Tudor recognizes a point or 2 regarding overcoming very early hardship to lead his side on an eye-catching unbeaten run, yet that warm streak was propounded an end by a managerial beginner aiming to make a name for himself accountable of Nice.

A clash between two in-form sides promised an entertaining ending to the latest round of Ligue 1 fixtures, but it was Didier Digard's Nice that showed up trumps, as Sofiane Diop, Gaetan Laborde and Billal Brahimi provided Ruslan Malinovskyi's effective initiative irrelevant.

Seeing their 10-game run without defeat involved an end is not what the physician purchased for Marseille prior to a clash of the titans with PSG, however with an under-performing Lens only handling a 1-1 draw with Brest at the weekend break, Les Olympiens remain 2nd in the Ligue 1 table as focus turns to the knockouts.

Tudor's side have actually published a 2-0 gain Hyeres and a 1-0 success over Rennes to make it to the last 16 of the Sports car de France, although the previous contest was ruined by Eric Bailly's inexcusable high difficulty on Almike Moussa N'Diaye, hospitalising the harmed midfielder and obtaining a seven-game ban for his troubles.

Ten-time champions of France's premier mug competitors, Marseille have actually gone 33 years without raising the prize aloft considering that defeating Monaco in the 1989 final, as well as they have fallen short to advance beyond the quarter-finals considering that shedding the 2016 showpiece match to - you guessed it - PSG.

Despite having Neymar and Kylian Mbappe both viewing on from the medical space, it was a day of incredible objectives at the Parc des Princes during PSG's showdown with Toulouse, whose midfield pivot Branco van den Boomen opened up the scoring with a wise, low free kick that caught out Gianluigi Donnarumma unawares.

Nevertheless, 2 of the likely suspects for PSG bailed the champs out of difficulty, as Achraf Hakimi released a rocket into the top edge to level ball games 7 minutes prior to the break, as well as a hallmark Lionel Messi strike into the bottom corner sealed a nervy win for the hosts early in the second duration.

Now flaunting a healthy eight-point lead up of the Ligue 1 table, Christophe Galtier's males have not radiated consistency this season, however they have encountered little problem during their go to the last 16 of the Sports car de France.

A 3-1 pounding of Chateauroux preceded a 7-0 demolition task of sixth-tier minnows Pays de Cassel - where Mbappe racked up five of PSG's goals on the day - yet the 14-time Coupe de France champs were removed at this stage of the competition on fines by Nice last period.

Maintaining simply 2 clean sheets in nine video games considering that the Globe Cup highlights where the majority of the champions' frailties have existed over the winter season, yet 4 of PSG's last five conferences with Classique rivals Marseille have actually ended in triumph, consisting of a narrow 1-0 win when the bitter enemies came to blows in Ligue 1 in October.

Bailly remains on the rowdy action after deservedly seeing red versus Hyeres, and he will serve the 7th and also last video game of his ban here, while fellow centre-back Leonardo Balerdi is also out because of yellow card accumulation.

As a result Sead Kolasinac ought to connect with Samuel Gigot as well as Chancel Mbemba in Marseille's back three, while Nuno Tavares and also Amine Harit will both lose out due to injury.

Vitinha - who Marseille stole under the noses of Southampton on target date day - need to be among those to quit, as Alexis Sanchez, Jordan Veretout, Malinovskyi as well as Kolasinac get ready for recalls to the initial XI.

While Marseille work around the absences of put on hold players, PSG will certainly welcome a player back from the banned checklist in Marco Verratti, whose return from a two-game expulsion is timely after Renato Sanches entered the treatment area yet once more.

The injury-plagued Portuguese lasted simply 14 minutes against Toulouse prior to sustaining a muscular trouble, which Galtier concerns can sideline him for a few weeks, and he signs up with Mbappe as well as Nordi Mukiele as PSG's precise absentees for this match.

On a brighter note, Galtier has actually validated that both Neymar as well as Sergio Ramos have recuperated from groin injuries and also are readily available, however Presnel Kimpembe still needs a bit longer to find back from an Achilles concern.

Marseille possible beginning schedule:
Lopez; Snake, Gigot, Kolasinac; Clauss, Rongier, Veretout, Kabore; Guendouzi, Malinovsky; Sanchez

Paris Saint-Germain possible starting schedule:
Donnarumma; Hakimi, Marquinhos, Ramos, Mendes; Vitinha, Verratti, Ruiz; Messi; Neymar, Ekitike

We state: Marseille 1-1 Paris Saint-Germain (PSG to win on penalties).
Marseille's performance versus Nice was not one to compose residence concerning, but Tudor will certainly invite numerous prominent players back to the very first XI, as well as goals have not been an issue for this respected Olympiens team - nor must they be against a leaking and diminished PSG backline.

PSG can not constantly rely upon Messi stunners to bail them out amidst their injury crisis - which is slowly boosting - and also we can envisage Marseille holding the injury-hit French champions to a low-scoring draw, yet the Parisiens' charge prowess must see them through to the last 8.
