The French club has 9 wins in 11 games since the turn of the year and could use their current form to upset the league leaders.

A win against Christophe Galtier’s men would see Marseille cut the gap to PSG to just 2 points as they would look to further the pressure on the French giants.

PSG have had a roller-coaster ride in their current campaign thus far. Looking like a strong team in France and in Europe, PSG’s train has fallen off the track since the World Cup break.

Les Parisiens need to overcome a 1-0 deficit against Bayern Munich in Germany in the second leg of the Round of 16 fixture while Marseille are closing in on the reigning champions in Ligue 1.

The main reason for this massive downfall has been PSG’s shaky backline as they are without a clean sheet in 7 consecutive games and could see the French title slipping if they drop points against Marseille.
