Olympique Marseille will be aiming to inflict a first defeat of the season on big-spending Paris Saint-Germain when the two teams meet in Ligue 1 on Sunday night.
Rudi Garcia’s side came from behind to beat Vitoria de Guimaraes in Europa League Group I on Thursday and Marseille, too, have found some decent form in domestic competition in recent weeks, having won three of their last four Ligue 1 matches; the hosts can be backed at 11/2 (6.50) with dabblebet to maintain momentum by taking the significant scalp of Unai Emery’s side.
PSG surprisingly missed out on the French title last season, but following the addition of both Neymar and Kylian Mbappe to their ranks this summer, Emery’s men have had to cope with the burden of increased expectation this time around.
The Parisians, though, have certainly lived up to their big billing so far this season, winning all but one of their 13 matches in all competitions and scoring 43 goals in the process; significantly, too, PSG have already established a six point lead at the top of the Ligue 1 table ahead of this weekend’s fixtures as they seek to take back their crown as champions.
Emery’s side can be backed at just 4/9 (1.44) to continue their superb start to the season with victory here, while the odds compilers offer 4/1 (5.0) that both sides are forced to settle for a share of the spoils from what seems certain to be a keenly contested fixture.
There have been no fewer than six goals scored in both of Marseille’s last two Ligue 1 matches and there is plenty of potential for a glut of goals in this game too, for PSG have scored 29 goals in their nine league matches so far.
With that in mind, dabblebet offer a hugely tempting 10/11 (1.91) that there are at least four goals in this game, while the odds compilers offer 19/20 (1.95) that the Parisians score more than two goals in this game – a selection that would have landed in eight of the last 10 matches that Emery’s team have won.
With Edinson Cavani, Neymar and Mbappe in attack – all of whom scored in PSG’s 4-0 victory at Anderlecht in the Champions League on Wednesday – it is no surprise that there has been plenty of focus on PSG’s quality in the final third, but Emery’s side, too, have shown a steely side, having managed five clean sheets in their last seven matches in all competitions.
Marseille, however, have scored seven in their last two league outings and Garcia’s side will feel that, backed by a vociferous home crowd, they are capable of testing the resolve of the Ligue 1 leaders.
Value may lie in backing more than three goals to be scored in this game and, therefore, it is dabblebet’s 10/11 (1.91) quote for, at least, four goals to be scored in Sunday’s showdown that could provide punters with a path to profit.
