PSG vs Marseille 01/03/18
Paris Saint-Germain and Marseille will face each other again at the Parc des Princes after an intensive and tense Saturday’s game, which PSG won ‘easily’ by three goals to nil. The home side is looking to secure their fourth French Cup title in as many years, and their impressive home-record gives them every right to seek another victory against the big rivals. The Parisians have won all of their home matches this season in all competitions, scoring 73 goals, which make them by far the fieriest hosts in the top five European leagues. The visitors have had a promising start of the second half of the season with four consecutive victories in the French Cup and the Ligue 1, but they have lost two games in a row, against Braga and PSG.
Rudi Garcia can’t count on injured, Christopher Rocchia, Konstantinos Mitroglou, and Steve Mandanda, while the ankle problems Neymar suffered last weekend cause Unay Emeri a huge headache, as the Brazilian wizard may not be able to recover for the Champions League second leg against Real Madrid. Kevin Trapp has picked up a red card against Sochaux, and Alphonse Areola should take his place between the posts. Hatem Ben Arfa, who barely performed this season, will miss the game due to a groin injury.
