Olympique de Marseille-Paris SG; Leo Messi is preparing to discover the French classic against the team led by his compatriot Jorge Sampaoli, on Sunday in the eleventh date of Ligue 1, after having lived dozens of classics in Spain with FC Barcelona.

An almost untouchable PSG visits on Sunday (18:45 GMT) a Marseille that occupies third place, ten points behind the Parisians, although it has one game less.

Messi will discover a classic Gallic rivalry much more recent than his Real Madrid-Barça counterpart, since it was forged in the 1990s, when Marseille dominated in France and Europe. In the last decade, the hegemony of Paris SG cannot be disputed (Marseille only won one game in the last ten years).
