Olympique Marseille vs Paris Saint-Germain
Competition: French League 1
Match date: 05 April 2015
Kick Off Time: 20:00 BST
Venue: Stade Vélodrome, Marseille 

The last few months were really unsuccessful for Olympique Marseille, after a great start of the season they had small crisis and lost their 1st place in Ligue 1. But it looks like that they are in form again, they won two from last 3 games played. They drew goalless in a tough home game against Lyon and won impressive in both away games against Toulouse (1:6) and Reims (0:4). 21 Years old M. Batshuayi scored 4 goals in these two games, but we are expecting A. Gignac to start against PSG. He’s the top scorer of Marseille with 16 goals scored in Ligue 1.
In front of their home fans they are without a victory in the last 3 games. They drew with Lyon and Reims, they also lost to Caen. Earlier they had streak of 11 home consecutive wins. In home table they are on the 3rd place with 35 points gained from 15 games (11 wins, 2 draws and 2 loses). In Ligue 1 table, OM are on the 3rd place too, just 2 points bellow the leaders from Paris, in case of a victory they could become competition leaders. They won 3 from last 5 games played against PSG at Stade Vélodrome.
After a really poor start of the season with lots of draws, PSG now are totally different team. They achieved UCL  quarter-finals after two great games against Chelsea. In the French league 1 they caught up with the leading squad (Lyon) and after last match-day they are ahead of them. Before the international break they won 3:1 against Lorient, all goals were scored by Ibrahimović, who also scored three goals in National Team games last week. As I wrote they are on the top of the league table, they collected 59 points in 20 games. In away table they are in the 4th place, with 22 points gained from 15 games (5 wins, 7 draws and 3 loses). They gained just 2 points from last 3 away games in Ligue 1. They lost to Bordeaux and drew away against both AS Monaco and Lyon. PSG won last 6 games in all competitions against Marseille. Interestingly they scored 2 goals in last 8 games against them, that means that they scored 16 goals, while conceded just 4. There are few injured players in the team, but Paris Saint-Germain have an really large and strong team, so they can replace them easily.

Probable lineups:
Olympique Marseille: Mandanda – Dja Djedje, Fanni, Morel, Mendy – Romao, Lemina – Thauvin, Payet, Ayew – Gignac.
Paris Saint-Germain: Sirigu – Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, David Luiz, Maxwell – Verratti, Motta, Matuidi – Pastore – Cavani, Ibrahimovic.
