Market: Moise Cain will score anytime
Possibilities: 20/21 @ 888sport
Looking to collect their first piece of national silver in the middle of the week, PSG will face Marseille at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis in Lens on Wednesday night.
Starting with the defending champions, notching his first win since joining PSG earlier in the month, Mauricio Pochettino saw his team land 3-0 against Brest over the weekend. Now, moving just one point adrift from Ligue 1 leader Lyon, the former Spurs boss knows he already has a real shot at lifting his first silver. While the French giants may have a number of attacking options in their ranks, PSG could ask Everton borrower Moise Kean to lead their attack on Wednesday night. Truly impressive since moving to the Parc des Princes last summer, the 20-year-old star once again found the net against Brest over the weekend and has been placed on the scoresheet in each of his last three appearances at the spinning top. Indeed, with six goals in his last eight games against Ligue 1 rivals, the former Juventus striker should be sure to extend that account midweek.
As for the visitors, while Marseille might have thought they had turned a 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. After settling for a slow 0-0 stalemate against Dijon, head coach André Villas-Boas has seen his team win just one of their last five meetings in all formats. With that streak highlighted by a 2-1 loss to Angers heading into the holiday break, Marseille also has a real reputation for its extended problems on the road. Having failed to win any of his last four straight appearances outside the Orange Velodrome and snatching just one point on that day away, we are backing up another tough night for the former Chelsea manager midweek.
Bet: Moise Kean 20/21 to score anytime against Marseille in the French Super Cup final on Wednesday @ 888 sport
