Fixtures between Paris Saint-Germain and Olympique Marseille are always a date that both sets of fans pencil into their calendars at the start of the season. Supporters have a real treat over the next week, then, as the two come to blows twice in the space of three days, with the Coupe de France quarterfinals to follow this weekend’s match at Parc des Princes, PSG’s home stadium.

The matchup referred to in France as Le Classique certainly has the potential to live up to its billing this time around, following a series of one-sided clashes since the huge cash injection into PSG. Indeed, Olympique Marseille has failed to win any of the last 15 meetings between the sides in all competitions, though this current OM side arguably has a better chance of ending that streak than those before it.
