Paris Saint-Germain must forget the draw result which they got when they host Napoli in the Group Phase of the midweek European Champions League yesterday, as there are still other important matches awaiting ahead, including the match against Olympique Marseille in France’s Ligue 1 follow-up Journee-11. The super big match will take place on Monday morning, 29 October 2018.
Olympique Marseille will host the match later, but this fact does not necessarily make them more favored wins over Paris Saint-Germain. Especially if you look at the performance of the two teams at the beginning of this season, where Marseille are only able to pack 19 points from the 10 matches that have taken place in the French Ligue 1 event, and are now in 4th place, 11 points behind Paris Saint-Germain, as the defending champion wiped out the first 10 games with a win.
Yes, Paris Saint-Germain managed to wipe out their first 10 games with successive wins and sit at the top of the standings with 30 points, superior to eight from nearest rivals, Lille in second place. PSG does not seem to have a significant competitor in France, but in Europe their performance is somewhat smooth.
From three Group Phase matches, PSG were only able to win over Red Star Belgrade, they even almost lost again in the hands of Napoli midweek, fortunately Angel di Maria’s late goal in the second half of injury time saved the face of Thomas Tuchel’s team in Paris public.
