Match Preview of PSG vs Marseille

Amid the backdrop of perennial Kylian Mbappe-related drama, Paris Saint-Germain welcome Marseille to the Parc des Princes for the 103rd instalment of Le Classique on Sunday night. Les Parisiens remain top of the Ligue 1 table despite being held to a 0-0 draw by Reims last week, while Igor Tudor's side have slipped to third after suffering a shock 2-1 loss to Ajaccio.

Barely a month goes by where fresh revelations do not threaten to tarnish PSG's image even further, and while multiple members of the club's core have denied claims that Mbappe is unhappy and wants to leave the club, the damage may have already been done.

The new batch of reports over the 23-year-old's future came just before he notched a record 31st Champions League goal for Les Parisiens in a 1-1 draw with Benfica, which represented a third stalemate in a row for Christophe Galtier's men after they were previously thwarted by Reims and their Portuguese opponents.

PSG have also been forced to deny claims that they concocted a social media smear campaign against Mbappe, whose on-field endeavours are paling into insignificance right now, but PSG need the 23-year-old at his explosive best if they are to retain their grip on top spot in the table.

The reigning champions are only one point clear of surprise package Lorient, who could knock Galtier's side down to second with victory over Reims on Saturday, but a return to the Parc des Princes fortress can help alleviate the sour mood stemming from Paris.

Our Predicted Lineups

Paris Saint-Germain possible starting lineup:Donnarumma; Mukiele, Marquinhos, Pereira; Hakimi, Verratti, Vitinha, Bernat; Messi, Mbappe, Neymar

Marseille possible starting lineup: starting lineup:Lopez; Mbemba, Balerdi, Gigot; Clauss, Guendouzi, Rongier, Tavares; Payet, Harit; Sanchez

Who will win the match?

We say: Paris Saint-Germain 1-0 Marseille. The result of Sunday's derby could very well hinge on Messi's availability, and if the silky Argentine is indeed ruled out, Le Classique may not be much of a classic at all for the home crowd.
