Paris Saint-Germain vs Marseille LIVE Football Score 17 Apr 2022
About the match
Paris Saint-Germain is going head to head with Olympique de Marseille starting on 17 Apr 2022 at 18:45 UTC at Parc des Princes stadium, Paris city, France. The match is a part of the Ligue 1.
Mauricio Pochettino will hope to win his first piece of silverware with Paris Saint-Germain when the Ligue 1 champions face off against Marseille at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis in the Trophee des Champions.
PSG warmed up for this final with a resounding 3-0 victory over Brest in Ligue 1, while Marseille were held to a goalless stalemate by relegation candidates Dijon.
Pochettino was unable to guide Tottenham Hotspur to a major trophy during his five-and-a-half years at the helm in North London, but the Argentine could win his first piece of silverware with PSG less than two weeks after taking charge.
The Trophee des Champions is contested every year between the Ligue 1 and Coupe de France champions, and unsurprisingly, PSG have enjoyed an unparalleled spate of dominance in the tournament down the years.
Ligue 1 is back in action with another round of matches this weekend as Marseille lock horns with Mauricio Pochettino’s PSG outfit at the Parc des Princes on Sunday.
