PSG and Marseille lock horns on Sunday night in this season's second instalment of France's showpiece fixture, Le Classique.

Mauricio Pochettino's PSG have lifted the malaise around the club following their dismal Champions League collapse with a pair of emphatic league victories, netting 11 goals in their last two games.

Jorge Sampaoli's Marseille, meanwhile, are currently riding the crest of a wave with an eighth successive victory in all competitions in midweek, sealing their place in the last four of the Europa Conference League with a 3-1 aggregate win over PAOK.

Here's everything you need to know about the game.

PSG's treatment room continues to swell as Pochettino counts the cost of his mounting injury list, with Marquinhos set to miss this weekend's derby clash.

The Parisiens are hopeful Angel di Maria and Layvin Kurzawa will return to the squad, while Ander Herrera, Julian Draxler, Abdou Diallo and Keylor Navas are inching closer to a comeback.

Up front, it should be the blockbuster front three of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.

Marseille are set to be without Arkadiusz Milik as the Pole continues his recovery from a hamstring injury.

Similarly, Konrad de la Fuente and Leonardo Balerdi have been ruled out for the rest of the season, with Sampaoli likely to name an unchanged lineup from last weekend's 2-0 win over Montpellier.

PSG vs Marseille head-to-head record

Remarkably, Marseille have won just once in the previous 24 Le Classique encounters, with their 1-0 win in Paris back in September 2020 snapping a nine-year winless run against PSG.

Indeed, that contest will live long in the memory in Ligue 1 history after an ugly brawl in the dying seconds led to five red cards - three of which were brandished to PSG players.

The reverse meeting between these sides earlier this season saw Achraf Hakimi dismissed in the second half, underlining the fiery nature of this contest.

PSG vs Marseille score prediction

Cynical eyes have been cast over PSG's recent resurgence, with Lorient and Clermont Foot hardly the stiffest of opposition in recent weeks.

Indeed, a test against the second best side in France will go a long way in measuring whether PSG have clicked under the Argentine, while a convincing victory would equally go a long way in restoring Pochettino's reputation among the supporters.

Marseille are likely to provide PSG's toughest test of the season, with Sampaoli's side playing with a confidence and swagger which can unnerve the Parisiens. An entertaining score draw on the cards? Quite possibly.
