The latest installment of Le Classique will get underway this Sunday as familiar foes PSG and Marseille prepare to lock horns at the Parc des Princes. Although PSG come into this game having secured a comfortable 2-0 win over Dortmund in their Champions League opener, the reigning Ligue 1 champions have been less convincing in their domestic title defense.
Currently under the tutelage of Luis Enrique, Les Parisiens have had a mixed start to the season and presently sit in fifth spot after picking up two wins, two draws, and one loss from their five games played. PSG started the current campaign with frustrating back to back draws against Lorient and Toulouse before seemingly turning a corner by recording consecutive wins against Lens and Lyons. However, their hard work came undone as they were beaten 3-2 by Nice, and now will be eager to use their confidence-boosting midweek win to help propel them to victory against one of their oldest rivals.
Meanwhile, Marseille battled to an impressive 3-3 draw with Ajax in the Europa League, and come into this contest having lost just one of their last eight games across all comps. With three draws and two wins from their first five matches, Sunday's visitors are just one of a few teams yet to lose so far in the nascent Ligue 1 season, but are facing plenty of turmoil behind the scenes coming into this game.
Head coach Marcelino abruptly resigned after just a few months on the tactician's bench, with Jacques Abardonado now taking over on a temp basis until a permanent option is found. The former defender will certainly be quite familiar with the tense atmosphere in Classique ties, having played for Marseille for three years in the late 90s and early 00s, and will know the tough task ahead considering that Marseille have won just two of their last 28 meetings with PSG across all comps.
