It is the biggest rivalry in French football that attracts a lot of attention.

Paris Saint-Germain are currently the outright strongest team in French football considering the quality on paper. With stars like Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar leading their attacking line, few teams are strong enough to give them a strong challenge. However, their upcoming contest against Olympique de Marseille could go either way because of the rivalry between the sides. Both teams will clash on 17 October 2022 at the Parc des Princes in Ligue 1. The stakes are also very high as PSG are leading the table with 26 points in 10 matches while Marseille is in third place with 23 points in 10 matches.

These two clubs are the only two French clubs to have won a major European title. Olympique de Marseille have won the UEFA Champions League in 1992-93 while PSG won the Cup Winners Cup in 1995-96. As far as Ligue 1 is concerned the Parisians have won 10 titles (joint most) while Les Olympiens have won it nine times. Both outfits have met in various competitions such as Ligue 1, Coupe de France, Coupe de la Ligue, and Trophee des Champions. Interestingly, they have never played each other in UEFA competitions.

The contests between the two have always been fierce between them. For that matter, the upcoming Le Classique fixture will be intense and one that fans across the world will be watching. Here is a look at the recent fixtures and head-to-head record between these two rivals:
