PSG vs Marseille: Prediction
This is a perfect opportunity for coach Emery to get all of the fans on his side after a difficult start. PSG are simply too good for Marseille who has yet to win a game away this season.
There are no indicators to think otherwise. Emery demanded much more from his side after they beat Basel in mid-week and that was a crying call for this game. PSG are obliged to be ready and so should we.
