PSG's Jallet: Let's hand Marseille a slapping

Les Parisiens' captain has stoked the fires ahead of his side's encounter with les Phoceens on Sunday, vowing revenge for last season's defeat in the corresponding fixture
Paris Saint-Germain full-back Christophe Jallet has laid down the gauntlet for his team-mates ahead of their crunch encounter against Ligue 1 leaders Olympique de Marseille in le Classique, labelling it a clash that could decide the title.

Carlo Ancelotti's men comprehensively lost 3-0 at Stade Velodrome last November, a result the defender is particularly eager to level against Elie Baup's men on Sunday.

"[September's 2-1 victory over] Lille proved to be a turning point for us," the 28-year-old admitted at a press conference.

"Marseille have been in stable form, as well as possessing a physical advantage, but let's hand them a slapping. This match will prove to see how well we can do in the league, and indeed if we can beat anyone."

Jallet is anticipated to start over summer purchase Gregory van der Wiel at the back, while Mamadou Sakho is suspended for the key clash.

The match is scheduled for 21:00CET on Sunday.
