Marseille vs Paris Saint-Germain Live

Lionel Messi will look to carry PSG through to the quarterfinals of the Coupe de France as the Parisian club travels to visit fellow Ligue 1 heavyweights Olympique de Marseille in a cup edition of Le Classique.

With Kylian Mbappe and Neymar both sidelined with injuries, Messi is the star of the PSG show for now. He’ll have bigger fish to fry as he leads the way against Bayern Munich in the Champions League, but this match will provide a solid litmus test for how ready the PSG attack is solely behind the Argentine legend. Neymar is close to a return and could feature here, but he’ll likely be eased back in.

PSG suffered a host of slips in Ligue 1 play through January, but back-to-back league wins under Messi’s watch have them back to feeling in control of their season.

Marseille, who sit second in the Ligue 1 table, eight points back of leaders PSG, are winless in their last five matches against the Parisians across all competitions, last victorious in September of 2020 when they won 1-0 at Parc des Princes. OM have not beaten PSG in front of their home fans since November of 2011, a run of 10 home matches without a win

Marseille vs PSG projected lineups & team news

Eric Bailly is still suspended for the red card he picked up against Hyeres in the first round of the Coupe de France, while fellow defender Leonardo Balerdi is also banned due to yellow card accumulation.

That means Marseille will likely play a back-three seeing former Arsenal defender Sead Kolasinac join Samuel Gigot and Chancel Mbemba.

Playmaker Amine Harit suffered an ACL sprain in November, and while it’s not expected to be as bad as a full tear, there’s still no timeline on his potential return.

Marseille projected starting lineup (3-5-2): Lopez (GK) — Mbemba, Gigot, Kolasinac — Clauss, Veretout, Guendouzi, Payet, Tavares — A. Sanchez, Under.

PSG projected starting lineup (4-4-2): Donnarumma (GK) — Hakimi, Marquinhos, Danilo, Mendes — Vitinha, Verratti, Zaire-Emery, Soler — Messi, Ekitike.
