Tip Reasoning

  • Marseille have drawn three of their last four Ligue 1 fixtures and five of their last six in all competitions.
  • The last two meetings between the clubs have ended in 1-1 draws.
  • Lyon have scored and conceded in six of their seven Ligue 1 home games of 2021-22.

Draw stands out as value in clash of contrasts

This clash, monikered Choc des Olympiques in France, is full of uncertainty with the best course of action probably to focus on the chances of a third successive draw being the outcome on Sunday.

Lyon are an attack-minded outfit that have had a few balance issues this season, leading to them currently having Ligue 1’s third-worst expected goals against figure at home.

Les Gones have conceded eight goals in their three most recent league games and have kept only home clean sheet this term, so they haven’t been getting away with it either.

There could be further disruption to a side that is without France full-back Leo Dubois through injury as goalkeeper Anthony Lopes, who kept the score down against Rennes last time out with a string of fine stops, a doubt.

Marseille’s attacking numbers have begun to flag

Marseille have begun to flag in terms of their goalscoring and that’s perhaps not too much of a surprise considering how much strain the Europa League has put on Jorge Sampaoli’s squad. They couldn’t punish Metz once the Grenats had been reduced to ten men in their last game and have now managed just two goals in their last four league contests.

It’s slightly worse on their travels where they have registered just twice in their last five – in all competitions

The chances, therefore, of a low-scoring draw look pretty good to us and, although the both teams to score price looks an attractive addition, we will keep it simple and take a 1-1 correct score bet because of Lyon’s recent record of seeing goals at both ends.
