Paris Saint-Germain v Marseille Betting Tips

Paris Saint-Germain probably feel as though they deserve a longer break before starting their 2020/21 Ligue 1 title defence, with Thomas Tuchel’s side recently losing in the 2020 Champions League final against Bayern Munich.

PSG are certainly the dominant force in French football and it would be a major shock if the team from the capital don’t score yet another title this time around, with the champions travelling to Lens for their opening game on 10 September before entertaining Marseille at the Parc des Princes.

Can Paris Saint-Germain Be Opposed in the Betting?

It’s always good to try and avoid lumping on the favourites in a football match, especially if you’re blindly placing wagers on odds-on shots. However, there’s often little point betting too strongly against a team like PSG who won 22 of their 27 games last term.

Trying to predict when PSG will slip up is difficult and they did score 75 goals last season despite the season being cut short, although there is sometimes merit in opposing them on markets such as the Asian Handicap where you can still win even if they’ve claimed a maximum haul.

Have Marseille Got Any Chance Against PSG?

While it will clearly be a tall order for Marseille to get something from this clash at the Parc des Princes, it’s possible that facing the French champions is best at the beginning of a season where key players like Neymar and Angel Di Maria won’t be available, especially as the pair tested positive for COVID-19 recently.

Marseille finished second in Ligue 1 last season after recording 16 wins from their 28 games played and they were defensively pretty tight after conceding just 29 goals, with the team opening their season with a 3-2 victory away to Stade France where they showed plenty of attacking prowess.

What Are the Best Bets for This Match?

The betting markets are yet to be launched for this game at the time of writing but we would favour backing an outcome which featured both teams finding the net or alternatively a certain number of goals being scored.

We think Marseille could be worth a second look on the Asian Handicap considering that PSG’s pre-season will have been disrupted by the Champions League final and also certain players going into quarantine.
