Kylian Mbappe seems to want out, which has fueled rumours of football consultant Luis Campos and head coach Christophe Galtier leaving as well. Everyone is still here for the time being, and they must now focus on Sunday’s game, Le Classique.
A win for Marseille would tie them on 26 points with PSG, while a win for the Parisians at the Parc des Princes would certainly have many calling them champions again after just 11 games.
Marseille cannot yet claim to be competitive, but there is undoubtedly reason for confidence. After all, this will be the third consecutive Classique contested by teams in the top three, which is the same number as in their previous 13 encounters.
That may not seem like much in isolation, and Marseille’s second-place finish last season left them 15 points behind PSG, but Igor Tudor’s side look to be making progress, with 23 points after 10 games third-best start in the top division.

To make matters even worse for Marseille, PSG has not suffered a single defeat in any of their most recent 19 Ligue 1 matches, which is their longest such win streak since 21 between May 2018 and Jan. 2019; additionally, PSG has not been defeated at home in any of their most recent 26 top-flight matches.
