Competition: French Super Cup
Market: Moise Kean to score anytime
Odds: 20/21 @ 888sport
Looking to pick up their first piece of domestic silverware in midweek, PSG will face off against Marseille at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis in Lens on Wednesday night.
Starting with the defending champions, managing to pick up his first victory since joining PSG earlier in the month, Mauricio Pochettino saw his side land a 3-0 romp against Brest over the weekend. Now moving just a single point adrift of Ligue 1 leaders Lyon, the former Spurs boss knows that he already has a real chance to lift his first piece of silverware. While the French giants might hold a string of attacking options in their ranks, PSG could be calling on Everton loanee Moise Kean to spearhead their charge on Wednesday night. Really impressing since making a move to the Parc des Princes last summer, the 20-year-old starlet once again found the net against Brest over the weekend and has got himself on the scoresheet in each of his last three appearances on the spin. In fact, with six strikes in his last eight contests against Ligue 1 opposition, the one-time Juventus striker should be confident of extending on that tally in midweek.
As for the visitors, while Marseille might have thought that they had turned a real corner thanks to a much-needed 3-1 win against Montpellier earlier in the month, Les Phocéens couldn’t keep up that momentum over the weekend. Having to settle for a sluggish 0-0 stalemate against relegation scrappers Dijon, Head Coach André Villas-Boas has seen his side win just one of their last five matchups across all formats. With that run highlighted by a 2-1 loss against Angers when heading into the festive break, Marseille also holds a real reputation for their extended issues on the road. Failing to win any of their last four straight appearances away from the Orange Vélodrome and snatching just a single point on that away day blip, we’re backing another tough night for the former Chelsea boss in midweek.
