Lyon – Marseille : Preview & Prediction
Olympique Lyonnais-Olympique de Marseille is the shock poster for these quarter-finals of the Coupe de France. Wednesday evening, on the lawn of Groupama Stadium, OL welcomes OM for the famous Olimpico, a meeting that has become essential in recent seasons in football France. Currently second in the league classification, André Villas-Boas’ OM will try to confirm his good streak against an opponent in whom he does not often shine, as demonstrated by his last victory dating from 2012 in the Rhône. Pick it up in the league – only ninth at 16 points from OM! – OL will want to win him a new success against his best enemy, and redeem himself from his little season with his supporters who are expected to be numerous. Already falling from Lille in the Coupe de la Ligue a few weeks ago, OL’s ambition is nothing less than victory and a new semi-final in the national cup this season. Before going to Lille on Sunday evening, Olympique de Marseille must therefore expect a complicated game with the flock of Rudi Garcia. A match for the Gones this Wednesday?
Marseille has not won in Lyon since 2012. Or 8 unsuccessful trips to the Rhône.
At home, Lyon have been unbeaten for 5 games now (Toulouse, Brest, Lille, Toulouse, Amiens).
Away, OM have won “only” 8 games in 15 this season. For a PSG dolphin …
Marseille is betting heavily on its Sunday match in Lille. AVB may not throw all its might into the battle.
OL have no choice but to win against Marseille. Prohibited defeat, guaranteed motivation!
Toko Ekambi, who arrived in Lyon this winter, has already scored against Marseille in his career. Third goal in five games for him?
Even if OM are in better shape than OL this season, the particular context of this match could lead Lyon to qualification this Wednesday at Groupama Stadium. Less in verve these last weeks and ultra-dependent on Dimitri Payet, the Phocaeans generally struggle in Lyon and could already have their match against Lille Sunday in a corner of their heads. And since a qualification in the Champions League will undoubtedly be more important than a last four in the Coupe de France, this last point could play in favor of OL in the scenario of the match on Wednesday. For our experts, qualification of Lyonnais therefore, in the semi-final of the Coupe de France.
