PSV will play host to French opponents at the Philips Stadium on Wednesday for the fifteenth time. PSV enjoy a pretty good overall record against French sides. They enjoyed five victories, drew six matches and suffered defeat only three times in Eindhoven.
Recent performances
In spite of a reasonable overall record, PSV did not perform well in their recent outings against French clubs. They went down 3-1 to FC Girondins de Bordeaux in the 2006/07 group stage - albeit with qualification already assured - and the previous season lost 1-0 to Olympique Lyonnais en route to a 5-0 aggregate reverse in the first knockout round.
Olympique Marseille data
To better their position in Group D, OM will have to improve on their recent performance levels on the road in Europe. Since winning their opening group-stage match of 2007/08 at Liverpool, they have lost five of their subsequent six away fixtures in UEFA club competition â€' three in the UEFA Champions League and two in the UEFA Cup. Their only win in that time was a 1-0 success at SK Brann in the third qualifying round in August. Marseille have won just two and lost four of seven past matches against clubs from the Netherlands. Their only away victory against Dutch opposition came in a losing cause, a 2-1 success at AFC Ajax failing to prevent a 4-2 aggregate reverse in the semi-final of the 1987/88 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup.
Zenden may make record appearance
With two defeats each already, inflicted by Liverpool and Atlético Madrid, PSV as well as Olympique Marseille are bottom of Group D. The two clubs can take heart from last season's group-stage statistics which show that Olympique Lyon qualified for the knockout rounds after two defeats. For Marseille's Belgian coach Erik Gerets, this game marks a homecoming to the club he served as both a player (1985-92) and a coach (1999-2002). Gerets previously faced PSV in the 2006/07 group stage when he was at the helm of Turkey's Galatasaray AĹž. He finished on the losing side in both matches, going down 2-1 (thanks to goals from Kromkamp and Koné) in Istanbul and 2-0 (courtesy of goals from Simons and again Koné) in Eindhoven on Matchdays 3 and 4. Marseille midfielder Boudewijn Zenden began his career with PSV, making his debut in the 1994/95 season before moving on to FC Barcelona in 1998. Zenden is looking forward to making a record appearance. If he is fielded tonight, he will play make his 75th appearance in a European competition. PSV v Olympique Marseilles kicks off at 8.45pm.
