Can anyone stop Paris Saint-Germain? That’ll be the unenviable task of Marseille, who face off against the team from the capital on May 21 at 3p.m. EST in the French Cup Final at the Stade de France. You won’t want to miss a kick, so click here for the live stream!
PSG are simply, almost, unbeatable. They won their championship at a canter by a massive 31 points, so for the Coupe de France final you’d think poor Marseille wouldn’t stand a chance, right? Well, you’d be wrong because this is a cup final and with everything to play for in a one-off match, it could so happen that the team from Paris suffers an upset.
One man who will be eager to make sure he goes out with a bang is Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The PSG star-forward has announced his intention to leave after this game and could be headed to the LA Galaxy. The crafty swede won’t tell us where he’s going, but it’ll be for a lucrative deal no bet.
If he doesn’t get on the scoresheet, you can bank on Edinson Cavani providing Marseille a headache upfront too. The Uruguayan has been in superb form this season, finding the net 24 goals in 48 games. With a host of clubs chasing his signature this summer, the cup final could be his swan song as well.
The last team these two teams met was back in February in Ligue 1. It was an amazing game that ended 2-1 to Paris, thanks to goals from Zlatan and Angel Di Maria. But Marseille had their chances to bury their rivals that day, so will be confident they can secure a better result this time round.
With PSG being the most dominant team in French soccer, possibly ever, it’s to bet against them lifting the cup. But on neutral territory, and with Marseille desperate for revenge, it could be a very difficult game for the champs.
