Marseille’s hold on second in Ligue 1 is incredibly strong at this late stage of the season. They will be looking to pick up a third straight victory in the league this weekend when they come up against a Lyon side that are currently sitting down in eighth.
Ligue 1 Preview
It has been a fine season for Marseille this term, and they could yet end the campaign with a piece of silverware to show for their efforts. The Olympians are clear in second place in the French top-flight, as they are six clear of Rennes with just four games of the season remaining. That could see their attention towards the end of the season switch to the Europa Conference League.
However, this is a big game in every sense of the word, and that will be enough to raise their performance levels significantly. Their recent league form has been very strong, as they have won four of their previous five, which includes back-to-back wins in their last two. Their latest win in the league was picked up against Reims, with Gerson scoring the winner in the final ten minutes.
It has been a season to forget for Lyon, as they look extremely likely to miss out on a place in the European spots. They are currently sitting down in eighth place, and have been far too easy to beat throughout the campaign, as they have lost on nine occasions already.
Their inconsistency has been clearly seen in their previous four games, as they have won twice, but been held on one occasion and they have also been beaten. However, they did pick up a second win in three games in their previous fixture, as they managed to pick up a dominant 5-2 win against Montpellier. Houssem Aouar was the star of the show, as he netted a brace.
Marseille vs Lyon Head to Head
Lyon come into this fixture having gone three without defeat against Marseille. Meanwhile, they have also been beaten once in 14 league fixtures against this weekend’s opponents. Lyon picked up victory earlier in the season with a 2-1 scoreline.
Marseille vs Lyon Prediction
Lyon’s dominant record in this fixture is an interesting angle. Marseille’s focus may be elsewhere this weekend, which means that we wouldn’t shy away from Lyon continuing their fine record in this fixture with another victory.
