Marseille vs Lyon Predictions

  • Marseille are on a run of five successive home wins
  • Lyon have won just one of their last six away Ligue 1 fixtures
  • Lyon have managed only four victories on the road in Ligue 1 this season

Second place not wrapped up for Marseille just yet

The Ligue 1 title has long gone for Marseille, but they still have second spot to wrap up, with a run of half a dozen wins in seven games giving them a six points advantage over third placed Rennes.

The only defeat during that time came to runaway champions PSG, while Jorge Sampaoli’s side have been particularly strong at home, notching up three successive wins.

Indeed, only two of their last nine league outings at Orange Vélodrome have ended in defeat, while of their four home losses, only two have come to sides lower than Lyon in the table.

Lyon still in touch touch with the European spots

If Lyon are to qualify for European football, they simply must halt a dreadful run of form away from home that has seen them go win just once in six outings.

Peter Bosz’s side have suffered defeat to Monaco and Brest during that time, while they have been victorious in just four of their 16 Ligue 1 fixtures on the road.

All of those wins on their travels have come against sides in the bottom half of the table, while when taking into account all competitions and all venues, they have been successful in only three of their last ten.

I predict that Marseille will win this game, but it might not be easy for them, selecting 2-1 as a correct score prediction.
