On the eve of the clasico, the French voted. According to a poll carried out last Thursday for Winamax and RTL and published this Saturday evening, 52% of them appreciate PSG, while OM wins the support of 38% of those polled (Editor’s note: this survey was carried out among 1,005 people aged 18 and over, including 405 football fans). This 14-point gap is the largest recorded between the two clubs over the past five years.
These results produced by the Odoxa polling institute during a survey carried out by telephone show the following: the punching action of Olympian supporters at the OM training center last weekend, which led to the postponement of the Marseille-Rennes match, tarnished the image of the Marseille club. During the period from October 2015 to October 2018, the two clubs were neck and neck, before the preferences of the French clearly slide towards the Parisian club, reaching a record level today.
But the French do not have a short memory. For 50% of them, OM, crowned in the Champions League in 1993, has more marked the history of French football than PSG. Among football fans, the figure swells to 61%.
Since his victory at the Parc des Princes in the first leg, nothing has gone well in Marseille. A time in the fight for the title, Marseille is now 9th in the standings 15 points from PSG (3rd) and 18 points from the lead. His trainer André Villas-Boas was laid off last Tuesday by his management. This Sunday evening, the clasico, which will take place in an empty Velodrome, the fault of the health context, is already shaping up to be hot.
