Lyon – Marseille : Preview & Prediction
Prepare your predictions, the Olimpico arrives this Sunday evening on the lawn of Groupama Stadium!
From 9:00 pm, as part of the sixth day of Ligue 1, Olympique Lyonnais welcomes Olympique de Marseille, for a clash between two large cars lacking benchmarks.
Eleventh in the championship with a weak accounting record of 6 points (out of 15 possible), the Gones remain in four games without a win, beaten in Montpellier (2-1) but also held in check by Bordeaux (0-0), Nîmes (0 -0) and Lorient (1-1).
For their last outing on the side of the Moustoir last weekend, Rudi Garcia’s men almost hit rock bottom, unable to stand out to equalize an individual feat from Dubois at the end of the game (1- 1).
On their Rhone lawn on Sunday, Denayer and company will therefore be under pressure, when it comes to welcoming one of their biggest rivals in recent years. A rival who is not equally at best, by the way.
Authors of a miraculous draw at the Vélodrome against Metz last Saturday (1-1), the Marseillais are also experiencing a very complicated start to the 2020-2021 season.
Despite two interesting successes at the opening of the championship (2-3 in Brest, 0-1 in Paris), André Villas-Boas’ men have largely sunk in recent weeks, being first beaten by Saint-Etienne at home (0 -2) before being manhandled by LOSC (1-1) and, therefore, FC Metz.
For this trip to Parc OL, Steve Mandanda’s teammates are therefore not in the best shape, even if they will obviously try to confirm their good series on the road (6 points out of 6).
An Olimpico which promises to be open, you will understand, between two teams (very) far from their previous standing. An ideal context for a double chance for visitors?
Marseille have only lost once this season (for 2 draws and 2 wins).
Away, OM have won both matches. One of which, we remember, in Paris (0-1).
Olympique Lyonnais have not won for 4 games in a row.
At home, the Gones remain on a failure against Nîmes (0-0).
Under pressure, Rudi Garcia and his men are not allowed to make mistakes. OM more liberated?
Although they haven’t won in Lyon for a very long time now (2012), the Phocéens have the qualities not to lose at Groupama Stadium this Sunday evening. Beaten only once since the start of the season, Florian Thauvin and company do not have the same pressure as the Lyon players, who do not have the right to make mistakes at home. Certainly more liberated than their rivals, the Marseillais therefore have the shoulders to bring something back to the Bouches-du-Rhône.
