France’s two most-successful clubs go head-to-head in the 104th staging of Le Classique.
Since being taken over by QSI, Paris Saint-Germain have dominated French football, winning 27 major trophies since 2013/14.
Between 2015 and 2021, PSG reached seven consecutive Coupe de France Finals, their only defeat in the competition coming in the 2019 final, beaten by Rennes on penalties.
Last season, les Rouge-et-Bleu’s stranglehold finally came to an end, ousted at this stage by Nice, also after a shootout.
So far this season, Christophe Galtier’s team have crushed both LB Châteauroux and Pays de Cassel, prevailing 3-1 and 7-0.
Meantime, PSG are eight points clear at the top of Ligue 1, following Saturday’s comeback 2-1 victory over Toulouse.
That win was achieved without Kylian Mbappé, who’s currently sidelined; a huge blow ahead of Tuesday’s clash with Bayern Munich.
So, with the Coupe de France’s top-scorer this season currently injured, can Olympique de Marseille knock out their fiercest rivals?
Les Phocéens have captured 26 major honours in their history but, as a result of PSG’s monopolisation, the most-recent of these came in 2012.
Igor Tudor’s team are second in Ligue 1 and were unbeaten in nine prior to Sunday night’s shock 3-1 home defeat against Nice in derby de la Mediterranée.
Whilst Champions League qualification is obviously vitally important, OM fans crave seeing their side lift major silverware again.
So, will it be a famous night at Stade Vélodrome, or will PSG’s quality see them to victory?
