Marseille vs Lyon
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 10th November 2019
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Velodrome (Marseille)
The Ligue 1 weekend wraps up with a mouthwatering tie when these two giants Marseille and Lyon will take on each other in the south of France on Sunday evening.
Marseille have been very inconsistent this season and yet are in 5th place with a chance to go 2nd if other results work out for them. One week they look like a solid outfit that could play in the Champions League and the next they look like a team battling to stay in the league. However they did win their last game which was against Lille in a 2-1 victory, that was at home.
Marseille’s overall form is very patchy, collecting 7 points from their last 15, and they have lost two games from their past five. At home the club have won 11 of their 19 points, about 55% and have lost just one game so far.
Lyon have rapidly improved under new coach Rudi Garcia and remain unbeaten in their last 3 and have won two games in a row. Last weekend they beat Toulouse 3-2.
It’s been a slow start from the club but Lyon are now moving up the table and are in 11th place. They could join Marseille with a win here. The club have lost just 1 away game in their last 4, although the others recently have been mostly draws.
Marseille vs Lyon: Head to Head
Last season in the league this fixture ended 3-0 to Lyon.
Marseille have not beaten Lyon in the league at home since 2014.
There have been 14 goals between the two teams in the last 3 meetings.
Marseille vs Lyon: Prediction
This will be an exciting game full of end to end incidents and it really could go anyway, because Lyon are still not at their strongest but Marseille do seem to have a psychological problem in beating the big teams. Instead we will back the game to have goals and also pick a scorer from each team. It also wouldn’t be a big surprise to see the game flare up and become physical so for small stakes at a good price we will back a player to get sent off and see a red card. Expect fireworks and a very good game, where both teams will be motivated to win.
