Paris Saint-Germain vs Marseille Live Score Updates Ligue 1 Match Today: Marseille has a genuine chance at winning the French title for the first time since 2010, especially if it beats league leader Paris Saint-Germain at home on Sunday. Victory at a packed and vociferous Stade Velodrome stadium against bitter rival PSG would bring second-place Marseille to within two points of the defending champion.  PSG is under big pressure after losing five of its 12 games this year, including a French Cup defeat at Marseille this month. PSG takes on a confident Marseille which has only one defeat in its last 14 games. PSG narrowly avoided a fourth straight defeat last weekend when it trailed Lille at home before winning 4-3 thanks to Lionel Messi’s injury-time free kick.  They share a record-equaling 10 French titles. But Marseille is the only French club to win the Champions League — in 1993 — and fans love using the expression “Forever the first” to needle PSG.  PSG forward Neymar was forced off the pitch on a stretcher Sunday after twisting his right ankle in a hard-fought 4-3 win against Lille in the French league.  Neymar picked up the injury at the start of the second half after the Brazil forward scored PSG’s second goal before the interval.  PSG led 2-1 when Neymar was injured following contact with Lille’s Benjamin Andre.  PSG has been struggling since the start of the year, with stars Neymar and Lionel Messi underperforming. Neymar has been on the end of sharp criticism for a perceived lack of commitment after French media reported that he attended a poker tournament and dined at a fast-food restaurant a day after PSG lost to Bayern Munich 1-0 at the Parc des Princes in the Champions League round of 16.  Neymar, who damaged the same ankle at the World Cup in Qatar, gave PSG a 2-0 lead at the end of a fast-developing collective move he also started, slotting the ball into an empty net from Vitinha’s assist. It’s unclear whether Neymar will be able to play next Sunday against second-placed Marseille in French soccer’s biggest match.  PSG lost another key player against Lille, with Nuno Mendes going off near the half-hour mark. Mendes, who played on the left side of PSG’s backline against Lille, was substituted after colliding with winger Jonathan Bamba.

Today's Ligue 1 match between Paris Saint-Germain and Marseille is a crucial one for Marseille, as a win would bring them within two points of the league leader and give them a genuine chance at winning the French title for the first time since 2010. PSG has been under pressure after losing five of its 12 games this year, including a recent French Cup defeat at the hands of Marseille. However, PSG narrowly avoided a fourth straight defeat last weekend when it won 4-3 against Lille thanks to Lionel Messi's injury-time free-kick.


Both PSG and Marseille have won 10 French titles, but Marseille is the only French club to have won the Champions League, which is why their fans love using the phrase "Forever the first" to taunt PSG.


PSG forward Neymar picked up an ankle injury during the game against Lille and was forced off the pitch on a stretcher. He scored PSG's second goal before being injured, and it's uncertain whether he will be able to play in the upcoming match against Marseille. PSG also lost another key player, Nuno Mendes, during the same game.
