Marseille (9-7-4, 30 points) face Paris Saint-Germain (17-1-2, 44 points) in the final match of the Ligue 1 season tonight at the Stade Velodrome.
Tonight’s game will be the team’s penultimate in Ligue 1 with the top two teams moving onto the Champions League quarterfinals in the next round. Monaco will face Nice on Sunday in a similar duel.
Marseille, who is currently sitting in fifth place in the Ligue 1 standings, will be needing a massive performance against the Parisian giants in order to keep their hopes alive of finishing in the top three.
Emmanuel Riviere’s goal 11 minutes from time rescued a point for Marseille in a 1-1 draw with Paris Saint-Germain on February 27th.
The victory moved both clubs five points apart in the table with PSG having a game in hand. However, they are currently 3-1-0 against Marseille in head-to-head matches.
The 34-year-old striker has had a poor run of form since he returned to Marseille from Crystal Palace where he has failed to score in his last six appearances.
PSG, on the other hand, is presently riding on a 21-game unbeaten streak in all competitions after avenging their Champions League defeat to Barcelona with a 1-0 victory at home on February 26th. The reigning French champions are aiming to secure a domestic double for the fourth time in Ligue 1 history.

Marseille vs PSG preview
For tonight’s game, Marseille and PSG have strengthened their squads by adding reinforcements ahead of the matches.
Marseille has brought in attacking midfielder Lucas Mendes from Sporting Gijon on loan until the end of the season. Benfica right back João Moutinho, who came to Marseille in the same swap deal, is also likely to be loaned back by the club.
The 29-year-old Portuguese star, who is a Champions League winner with Monaco, showed impressive form during his brief stay at the club before he was sold to Benfica at the start of last season.
PSG, meanwhile, has gained some much-needed protection with the signing of Brazilian right back Dani Alves, who joined the French giants as part of a three-team transfer agreement with Ligue 1 rivals Marseille and Everton.
