Match Preview of Real Madrid vs Al Ahly

The latest edition of Le Classique will feature Marseille and Paris Saint-Germain in the round of 16 in the Coupe de France competition, taking place on Wednesday night at the Orange Velodrome stadium.

Recently, Marseille's winning streak was halted with a 3-1 loss to Nice, while Paris Saint-Germain overcame a deficit to defeat Toulouse 2-1 during the last match.

Marseille's coach, Igor Tudor, has a history of leading his team through tough times and going on an impressive unbeaten run. However, this streak was recently ended by the novice manager of Nice, who is looking to establish himself in the coaching world.

The match between two strong teams promised an exciting conclusion to the recent Ligue 1 games, but it was Nice, led by Didier Digard, who emerged victorious. Goals from Sofiane Diop, Gaetan Laborde, and Billal Brahimi overshadowed Ruslan Malinovskyi's powerful strike.

Those early-season defeats to Brentford and Brighton & Hove Albion now feel like an eternity ago for Erik ten Hag's men, who are in the driving seat for Champions League football as they sit comfortably in third place in the Premier League table, and Manchester City are now just three points clear of their local adversaries following their defeat to Tottenham Hotspur.

The end of Marseille's 10-game unbeaten streak is not ideal for the team ahead of their crucial match against PSG. However, with Lens only securing a tie in their match against Brest, Marseille remains in second place in the Ligue 1 table, and now focuses on the knockout stage.

Our Predicted Lineups

PSG possible starting lineup:Lunin; Carvajal, Nacho, Rudiger, Alaba; Kroos, Tchouameni, Modric; Valverde, Rodrygo, Vinicius Jr

Marseille possible starting lineup: starting lineup:El Shenawy; Hany, Metwalli, Abdelmonem, Maaloul; Fathi, Dieng, El Solia; Tau, Sherif, Abdel Kader

Who will win the match?

Our prediction: Marseille 1-1 Paris Saint-Germain (PSG to win in a penalty shootout). Marseille's showing against Nice was subpar, but with several key players expected to return to the starting lineup, goals should not be an issue for this productive Olympiens team, even against a vulnerable and depleted PSG defense. PSG cannot solely depend on stunning goals from Messi to overcome their injury problems, which are gradually improving. We foresee Marseille keeping the French champions to a low-scoring draw, but PSG's proficiency in penalty kicks should ultimately secure their spot in the quarterfinals.
