Lyon vs Marseille Prediction

Lyon got the better of Nice in a highly entertaining 2-1 victory in the previous round of this competition. Despite holding on to a 1-0 scoreline for the most part of that game, the hosts conceded an equalizer in the 89th minute, which looked almost certain to force the fixture into extra time.

However, the home team were handed a lifeline in the form a penalty-kick, in the dying minutes of stoppage time, which Houssem Aouar made no mistake in converting.

Meanwhile, Marseille booked their berth in the quarter-finals by taking down Strasbourg at home with a thumping 3-1 scorecard. It is also worth mentioning that the visitors are currently unbeaten in their last sixteen clashes in all competitions.

Be that as it may, the guests have picked up the win in just half of their past six outings. Furthermore, Marseille have been at the losing end in each of their previous three visits here in the running.

To make matters, the hosts have admitted defeat in just two of their last twelve matchups on home soil. With home advantage favoring Lyon, Marseille have been cast as the underdogs in this one.

Having said that, the visitors have shared the spoils four times on the road this season. Taking into account that they have also held the hosts to a draw in four of their last nine trips here, it will be safer to back a draw no bet this week.

Additionally, Lyon have racked up the goal-scoring tally, more often than not, in their fixtures at home. That too, on their own. In fact, they have netted two goals or more in all but one of their previous five games here.

Moreover, two of their past three h2h meetings at this stadium have featured over 2.5 goals on the charts. As such, expect nothing short of a high scoring affair to unfold this week.
