Andrese-Boas, head coach at Marseilles, believes that the spending power of Saint-Germain in Paris means that they are operating in a "second league" of domestic competitors in France.

The Paris giants have dominated Ligue 1 since Qatar Sports Investments took over in 2011, winning six of the eight possible juguets.

They are also responsible for paying the two largest transfer fees ever, breaking the record when they spent $ 222 million ($ 360 million) in Barcelona in 2017 to get Nymar, while Kylian Mbappe paid Monaco $ 135 million ($ 219 million). .

Not surprisingly, they've wasted little time re-stamping their power at their championships this season, winning a five-point lead at the summit after 10 games.

Marseille will drive to Le Classique's Parc des Princes on Sunday, but Villas-Boas says the game is of little importance to him given the financial strength of their opponents.

"We have a completely different game against a team that, for me, does not belong to this championship due to the investments made during those years," he told the media after his half-Sunday victory over Strasbourg.

"We're trying to play the game for the sake of the game, but it's not a game that doesn't mean much to me. PSG-Marseille or Marseille-PSG is an opportunity for me to try something.

"We probably dream of winning, but it's a team from another league. It used to be Classique. But we're going to Paris; we're coming up with a strategy. The most important thing is to play ball there."
