Team News

  • PSG could well be without Thiago Silva once more due to a thigh problem, while Lucas Moura is also a doubt with an ankle injury.
  • Thiago Motta has a hamstring complaint, and Jeremy Menez could again be unavailable with a groin injury.
  • Marseille have very few absentees and have only Benoit Cheyrou out with a thigh injury.
  • Jordan Ayew serves the final game of a two-game suspension, but Kassim Abdallah returns from a ban.

Prediction

  • Paris Saint-Germain and Marseille meet at the Parc Des Princes for this season's third installment of Le Classique.
  • The Parisians earned a 2-2 draw at the Stade Velodrome in the league meeting earlier in the season, before dispatching of L'OM in the Coupe de la Ligue a few weeks later.
  • They will likely be favourites going into this clash, but after falling to a 3-2 defeat to Sochaux last time out, they will need to improve if they are to beat their fierce rivals, who beat Valenciennes in their last game thanks to a late winner from Rod Fanni.
  • It is the debut of David Beckham that is bound to make the headlines leading up to the game, and PSG will hope that they can deliver a performance worthy of the spectacle and re-establish their dominance at the top of Ligue 1.
