PSG – Marseille 27.02.2013
I expect Paris Saint-Germain to win this match and to reach the quarter-final of Coupe De France.
The atmosphere in the squad is very good at the moment. They are currently on the first place, three points clear of Lyon. Les Parisiens are also doing well in UEFA Champions League. They managed to beat 2:1 Valencia at Mestalla in the first leg and almost secured the progress.
The coach Carlo Ancelotti has Marco Verratti suspended for this match, meaning David Beckham will start from the first minute. In the attack Ancelotti can choose between Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Kevin Gameiro. The first one is in excellent form, but he need some rest.
Match: PSG – Marseille 21.00h
League: France Cup
Our prediction: Home Win Odds: 1.65
Olympique Marseille isn’t in fine form at the moment. They have only one victory in the last five matches in League, Andre Ayew and Jeremy Morel are doubtful for this match. It could be a problem for the coach Elie Baup as he could be short of options at the left-back position. It is possible the youngster Baptiste Aloe (18 years old) to start on that position.
I believe PSG is closer to the victory. The quality is on their side, the home advantage too. PSG also have a good record against Marseille at Parc des Princes in Paris. I expect another win for PSG.
