Lyon vs Marseille prediction, preview, team news and more

Watch this weekend Lyon faced to Marseille in a specialty Ligue 1 match at Groupama Stadium.

Lyon is currently in a disappointing 7th place in the rankings, while Marseille is three places above them at 4th.

This weekend, which of the strongest teams in Ligue 1 will take the lead?


Head-to-head record of Lyon vs Marseille

Despite often flying high in Ligue 1, Lyon’s form was rather patchy in the early stages of the 2021-22 campaign.

They have won five games, but have also lost four, and most recently the last game of the game against Rennes, who beat them 4-1.

Lyon’s problem this season has been their defence, as they have conceded 21 goals – the most of any team in the top half of Ligue 1.

Meanwhile, Marseille only lost 2 times in the opening 13 matches. They are currently on a 5-match unbeaten streak and are trying to find a real chance for a Champions League spot.

Only one team has conceded less than Marseille this season, as they have only conceded 12 goals.

However, they have scored the fewest goals in the top eight in Ligue 1, with just 20 so far.

Both of Lyon’s matches against Marseille in the 2020-21 season ended in a draw, but the most notable thing in recent confrontations between the two sides is the number of red cards. Of their last six meetings, there were five of them.

Prediction Lyon vs Marseille

It will be a close match to call between two of Ligue 1’s better teams.

Marseille are certainly steadier players and obviously have stronger defences, but Lyon are capable of scoring, something Marseille have struggled with this season.

Overall, this could go either way, but a draw seems very likely.

Guess: Lyon 1-1 Marseille
