Paris Saint-Germain FC
Paris Saint Germain picked up their second consecutive league title last season, and they head into the new season as clear favorites to win, but they sit fifth in the league after five matches. The Parisians have won three of their last five games in all competitions, and they would be looking to get back into the top three with a good performance at home. Kylian Mbappe has been in fine form for the hosts, and he was amongst the goalscorers the last time PSG defeated Marseille.
Olympique de Marseille
Olympique Marseille haven’t lost a game this season but have dropped many points in draws this season. The Olympians are winless in their last two games in the French Ligue One, and they failed to get past the Toulouse defense in a goalless draw. Jacques Abardonado’s team is well-stacked in both attack and defense, and they would be very hopeful of their chances against Paris Saint-Germain.

PSG vs Marseille Predictions
Tip # 1: Total Goals – Over 2.5 @ 1.62 (8/13)
Olympique Marseille was involved in one of the highest-scoring games in the first round of European football in a six-goal thriller against AFC Ajax. The Phocaeans have scored eight goals in their last five matches, and they are among the top-scoring teams in the Ligue One this season. Olympique Marseille refreshed their attack this summer, and with Pierre Emerick Aubameyang leading the line, the Olympians have never lacked goals.
Three out of PSG’s last four games have ended with over 2.5 goals, and they have been on fire in the league. Both teams have been playing end-to-end football this season, and this game could yield many goals. A bet on over 2.5 goals is a good option available on high-odds football betting sites.
Tip #2: Both Teams To Score @ 1.57 (4/7)
PSG finally kept their first clean sheet in five games in the 2-0 win over Borussia Dortmund, but they have been very poor at the back this season. In the last five games, Luis Enrique’s team has conceded six goals, averaging over a goal conceded per game. Olympique Marseille has a slightly better defensive record in the league, but they conceded three times in their last game against Ajax, and it is almost unlikely that they would keep a clean sheet at the Parc des Princes.
