BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW
On Sunday night, Lyon host Marseille at the Groupama Arena in a big clash in Ligue One, as both teams look to push up the French top-flight table.
OL are seventh place in the table, four points behind Sunday night’s opponents who occupy the final European qualification berth. Peter Bosz’s team have been the definition of inconsistency of late, as they have won two, drawn two and lost two of their previous six outings in Ligue One.
Lyon’s recent league outings have certainly offered good entertainment value, as six of OL’s previous nine Ligue One matches have produced over 2.5 goals.
The home team are unbeaten in seven league games at the Groupama Arena, having won four of their last five Ligue One matches. A big factor in Lyon’s recent home games has been their potent attack, as they have scored at least two goals in five of their last six matches.
The visitors are fourth-place in the Ligue One table, just a point behind second-place Lens. Jorge Sampaoli’s head into this clash on the back of a five-game unbeaten in the French top-flight. However, three of their last four league matches have ended in draws.
Their recent league matches have been low-scoring, as OM’s last four Ligue One matches have produced under 2.5 goals.
Marseille have been inconsistent on their travels in the French top-flight of late, as the visitors have won just one of their last four away matches.
Lyon could be without Moussa Dembele, Jeff Reine-Adelaide and Lenny Pintor through injury. Marseille have fitness doubts over Turkish attacking midfielder Cengiz Under, who is struggling with a hamstring injury.
We fancy Lyon to record a narrow victory in a fairly tight clash, allowing OL to make up ground on Sunday’s opponents in the table.
