Third play fourth in Ligue Un this weekend as Marseille host Lyon at the Stade Velodrome. Both sides go into this one in decent form, both winning their last two games and unbeaten in three.
Our Marseille v Lyon odds preview shows us that Olympique Lyon have had the upper hand in this fixture over recent seasons. Aside from a Coupe de France extra time win in 2017, Marseille have only won one of the last 18 meetings between the two but if they can change that record here they could jump to within one point of second placed Monaco.
Marseille vs Lyon Match Preview
This fixture, certainly in recent years, have tended to be close affairs. Of the last seven, five have been draws, with Lyon winning the other two. One interesting stat for our Marseille v Lyon odds preview is that there is rarely a flurry of goals when these two sides meet - in particular in the first half. In fact, in each of the last eight meetings the first half has only provided one goal or less. A Half-Time/Full-Time or First Half Goals bet might be worth thinking about.
There have been a few yellow cards shown in this fixture - in the last six meetings alone there has been a total of 27 bookings given. Betting on cards for this one too could prove profitable.
Our Marseille v Lyon match preview shows that the home side go into this one as slight favourites in the Match Result market. To find extra value, it might be worth looking to bet on the Total Goals Over/Under market, as this fixture is pretty tough to call.
