Competition: Coupe de France
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 4/6 @ 888sport
In what is a heavyweight Coupe de France tie on Wednesday night, PSG will make the trip to the Stade Velodrome when they meet Marseille.
Starting with the hosts, watching their eye-catching run come to an abrupt end over the weekend, Marseille will be seeking an immediate response on Wednesday night. Eventually slumping to a shock 3-1 loss at home against Nice, that was the first defeat that Igor Tudor’s side have suffered from their last nine domestic showdowns across all formats. However, desperate to prove that was just a minor blip, Les Phoceens have gained a string of plaudits from across France this season. Still sat second in the Ligue 1 table and sat in pole position to punch another Champions League ticket, the one-time Galatasaray boss will be hoping for his side to find some recent defensive stability. It should be highlighted, Marseille have seen three of their last four domestic matchups at the Stade Velodrome have finished with both teams finding the net.
As for the visitors, while PSG might have been left stunned by that last-gasp 1-1 draw against Reims last week, the French heavyweights have certainly come roaring back. Claiming a 2-1 victory at home against Toulouse over the weekend, Christophe Galtier’s men are sat in pole position to claim another Ligue 1 crown this season. Looking to complete a domestic sweep in 2023, the ex-Nice boss will be calling on his superstar squad to lay down another marker here. However, while Les Parisiens might be tipped as a standout pick on Wednesday night, they too have shown some extended issues at the back. Without a Ligue 1 clean sheet on their travels since returning from the World Cup’s winter break, we could be treated to an enjoyable affair here. With three of PSG’s last four top-flight away fixtures finishing with both teams finding the net, we’re expecting a similar outcome in midweek.
