Paris Saint-Germain will be looking to extend their impressive run against Olympique Marseille when they clash at the Parc des Princes for a Ligue 1 affair on Sunday night.

Despite an upsetting elimination from the Round of 16 of the Champions League at the hands of Manchester United, Thomas Tuchel’s men have remained overly dominant on the domestic front, proving that with a commanding 4-0 win at Dijon last time out.

For context, Les Parisiens have picked up 74 points after 27 games in Ligue 1 this season, a record at this stage of the competition.

They have also been the dominant side in this fixture, losing none of their last 14 games in this competition against Marseille (W11 D3), with their last defeat in this fixture coming in November 2011.

Putting the aforementioned narrative into consideration, it’s no surprise to see the Paris-based outfit getting tagged as outright favourites at odds of (1.30) with NairaBet.

However, the home side will come up against a Marseille side that looks to have turned a corner recently.

Les Olympiens are unbeaten in their last six league games (W5 D1), having won just once in their previous eight Ligue 1 games (L4 D3) leading to the unbeaten run.

Regardless of the upturn in form, Rudi Garcia’s men will have it all to do in Paris as they seek to preserve their six-game unbeaten run, with a famous win for them here going for huge odds of (9.80) odds with the same bookies.

Goals change games, just as victories alter form. The in-form Marseille have scored in all of their previous six league games. They will definitely be in the mood to score in the clash, even as they go head-to-head against the highest-scoring side in Ligue 1 this season.

It thus shapes this fixture into one that looks set to produce goals at both ends of the pitch. This probable outcome is priced at odds of (1.76) with NairaBet.

A stalemate at the blast of the full-time whistle is valued at (6.30) odds.
