PSG and Sweden's superstar striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has a fabulous scoring record against Marseille since moving to Ligue 1
Paris St Germain have managed to score twice in every single one of their last eight Le Classique meetings with Ligue 1 title rivals Olympique de Marseille across all competitions.
That makes PSG great value at 11/8 with Coral for their match total to be over 1.5 in their latest encounter.
Such a great scoring run explains why the Parisians are a best-price 6/4 with BetVictor for victory, after six in succession and seven in eight against this Mediterranean coast opposition, coached by Marcelo Bielsa.
When charting PSG’s progress and rise to prominence, one name in particular stands out to punters, Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The Sweden striker has five in as many starts against Marseille for the French champions, making best anytime scorer odds of 11/8 on offer at Ladbrokes brilliant.
Ibrahimovic is going to go down as a modern day icon for both club and country, and the 33-year-old’s current form is compelling evidence of why. Zlatan is definitely the man, with eight goals in his last four appearances, three on international duty and five for Laurent Blanc’s Paris outfit.
That makes superb odds of 6/1 (also Ladbrokes) for Ibrahimovic to net two or more against Marseille magnificent. Bielsa’s boys play hosts here, but have failed to win in their own stadium, the Velodrome, since the end of January.
L’OM possess their own in-form threat with Belgium cap Michy Batshuayi boasting seven goals in six for club and country, but those scoring stats pale in comparison to Ibrahimovic’s above.
Marseille are marred by some off the field issues surrounding money, in stark contrast to their mega-rich visitors. It has effected performances, with the home defence keeping just two clean sheets on their own turf since November.
Ibrahimovic will offer no quarter to Bielsa’s boys and, backed up by South American quartet Edinson Cavani, Ezequiel Lavezzi, Lucas Moura and Javier Pastore, an industry-best price of 15/4 at bet365 says he shall carry on his lethal striking exploits by netting first.
