Prediction and betting tips

PSG have a streak of 29 matches without losses, but they have drawn in the last three matches. They have 1-1 scores in two matches against Benfica in the 2022-23 Champions League and drew in the last match in the 2022-23 Ligue 1 against Reims. In the last match against Marseille, PSG did not play their best. Also, Lionel Messi will not be lucky to participate in this match. It will make his team much weaker, because he is the best creator of dangerous moments for PSG in this season.

Marseille beat Sporting in the last match, but they were able to score more than two goals, because their rivals had two red cards in this match. I believe that we will see a total of under 3.5 goals, which has played out in 10 of the last 11 matches with PSG participating, because both teams are not in their best forms now. Also, Kylian Mbappe will be able to score in this match. He has scored two out of four goals in the last three H2H matches against Marseille.

Betting prediction: Under 3.5 goals

Odds: 1.70 (-143 American; 7/10 Fractional)

Betting prediction: Kylian Mbappe to score

Odds: 2.00 (+100 American; 1/1 Fractional)
