Runaway leaders Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) visit Marseille (MAR) for the latest edition of the ‘Le Classique’ in 2021-22 Ligue 1 season at the Orange Velodrome on Monday, October 25. The game will kick off at 12:15 AM IST.
MAR vs PSG Dream11 Prediction
Paris Saint-Germain arrive at Marseille with momentum on their side, with nine wins in 10 league games. The Parisiens, who have lost just one Le Classique since 2011, are bolstered with the availability of Neymar and will hope to put a halt to the plans of a free-scoring Marseille.
Les Olympiens, who average two goals in all home games this term, have lost just one of their last 13 Ligue 1 matches at the Stade Velodrome. Sitting third on the points table, Jorge Sampaoli’s men returned to winning ways with a 4-1 win over Lorient and will fancy a quality performance to derail the form of the nine-time league champions.
MAR vs PSG Dream11 team tips for Ligue 1 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
Despite the presence of Lionel Messi and the returning Neymar, Kylian Mbappe has been the chief outlet of goals for Paris Saint-Germain. The France superstar has five goals and four assists in ten Ligue 1 outings and has tallied the maximum fantasy points - 466 points.
Top tip: Best midfielder
If there is anyone who can bail out a win for Marseille, it is Dimitri Payet. The attacking midfielder, who has stacked five goals and four assists in six league games, can press his way past the likes of Ander Herrera and set the tone for Arkadiusz Milik to strike past Keylor Navas.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Achraf Hakimi’s ability as an attacking defender makes him the obvious choice in the defensive slot. The right-back has registered three goals and two assists this season and could be an asset for fantasy players with regards to a goalscoring defender.
When it comes to goalkeepers, Keylor Navas is the first-choice pick. While the PSG custodian has been rewarded with 161 fantasy points, it must be known that his counterpart, Pau Lopez has kept more clean sheets (three) than the former (two) in Ligue 1. Hence, choose wisely.
MAR vs PSG probable playing XI
MAR playing XI (probable): Pau Lopez (goalkeeper); William Saliba, Duje Caleta-Car, Luan Peres; Pol Lirola, Boubacar Kamara, Matteo Guendouzi, Konrad De la Fuente; Gerson, Dimitri Payet (captain); Arkadiusz Milik
PSG playing XI (probable): Keylor Navas (goalkeeper); Achraf Hakimi, Marquinhos (captain), Presnel Kimpembe, Nuno Mendes; Ander Herrera, Marco Verratti, Idrissa Gueye; Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Lionel Messi
