Olympique Lyonnais vs. Marseille Predictions, Betting tips and Match Preview

This match is one of the cracking fixtures of this weekend as these two sides look to keep the pressure on league leaders Paris SG and at least claim a UEFA Champions League spot at the end of the season.

Olympique Lyon head into this match in a very tough time after a great start to the season.

Prior to this month, they had been in great form dispatching teams with relative ease.

Olympique Lyon lost to Lille in the league, Atalanta in the Europa League and fell to another 4-1 loss at Montpelier in their last competitive match.

Lyon remains the 2nd highest scorers in the division with 47 goals thanks to the form of Nabir Fekir, Mariano Diaz, and Memphis Depay and will be looking to get a couple of goals here also.

Olympique Marseille are on a better run of form than their host heading into this match and they should be contented with a draw here as they play struggling Troyes after this match and if they can pick up all 3 points here that would mean heading into the winter window ahead of Olympique Lyon in the league table.

Just like Olympique Lyon, they have won 10, drawn 5 and lost 2 of their 17 league matches this season.

Olympique Marseille have lost 16, won 9 and drawn 17 of their last 42 meetings with Olympique Lyon.

Olympique Lyon v Olympique Marseille Match Stats 

Paris SG are seemingly unstoppable on their march for the title at the top of French Ligue 1 - this match is set to be absolutely intense as it sees two of the league’s strongest teams face-off. Despite having the distraction of the UEFA Europa League, Olympique Lyon lies 2nd in the Ligue 1 table, which is good for automatic UEFA Champions League qualification, but equal on points with Monaco (3rd – UCL playoff round) and today’s opponents Olympique Marseille (4th – UEL).

Olympique Lyon’s home defeat to Lille on November 29 ended a run of 15 home matches unbeaten. It also ended a run of 4 consecutive home clean sheets – Olympique Lyon’s best run since November 2015.

Olympique Lyon have lost only 1 of their last 16 matches against Olympique Marseille, there will be no complacency after Bruno Genesio saw his side smashed 4-1 at Montpellier in the midweek Coupe de la Ligue round of 16. In an interview with football365 FR, he said, “A defeat is always unbearable. Losing under these conditions, with three goals and being at times the limit of malpractice, it's messy. We have a match Sunday and this is the most important now”.

Most of the two sides’ recent encounters have been close fought. 5 out of the last 6 meetings have ended all square, with less than 2.5 goals scored in 6 out of the last 7.

Olympique Marseille are also looking back on a midweek cup exit, but at least took their opponents all the way to penalties. However, they are now unbeaten in 12 Ligue 1 matches after a poor start to 2017/18. Amongst the traveling squad is Valere Germain, who recently opened his scoring account with the club through a double blast against St Etienne on December 10.

If penalty defeats are counted as draws, Olympique Marseille are now unbeaten in nine domestic away matches. This is the club’s best unbeaten domestic away run since the one that fell between October 2015 and March 2016 (11 matches).
