Free football betting tips for the weekend
No matter of these two teams’ current situations, the game between PSG and Olympique Marseille remains probably the biggest derby in the French Ligue 1. These two teams will face each other again at the Parc des Princes on Sunday in a game from the 11th round of the league. Let’s take a look in our free football betting tips for the weekend.
We know very well that the Ligue 1 is no more a challenge for PSG. After 10 rounds played so far, the champions are leading the standings with 24 points, having 5 points advantage in front of Nantes. We expect that in future this lead is going to be increased, because Thomas Tuchel’s team is just on another level, compared to the rest of the league.
Recently PSG suffered a shocking 0-2 loss against Reims in Paris, but since then the champions showed their abilities again, securing themselves three consecutive wins. In the last round Tuchel’s team visited Nice at the Allianz Riviera and enjoyed a convincing 4-1 win. Angel Di Maria scored a brace, while Kylian Mbappe and Mauro Icardi also scored.
In the absence of the once again injured Neymar, Mbappe and Icardi are showing a terrific. They once again scored during the week, when PSG crushed the Belgian side Club Brugge with 5-0 in the Champions League. Mbappe was the star of the game, scoring a hattrick. Right now PSG have five consecutive wins in all competitions.
Olympique Marseille are still shaping themselves up under the management of their new head coach Andre Villas-Boas. They had a tough start of the season, but right now Marseille are 4th in the standings with 16 points, which is a little bit better. Their record in the league goes like this: four wins, four draws and two losses.
In the previous round Marseille ended their run of games without a win in the Ligue 1, beating Strasbourg with 2-0 at the legendary Stade Velodrome. Boubacar Kamara and Kevin Strootman from a penalty kick scored for Villas-Boas’ team.
In our free football betting tips for the weekend we will say the obvious – PSG are the big favourite to win the derby, especially when being played in Paris. But can VIllas-Boas surprise Thomas Tuchel with some smart idea? We are going to see.
