Marseille – Lyon, Ligue 1 Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR MARSEILLE - LYON
Marseille are finishing the season and their shape is very hesitant, making it difficult to predict what motivation they would have for each match. With Balotelli in the attack, OM is strong, but in the last game even this did not help to take the three points against Strasbourg. In theory, Marseille still have a chance for the top 4, but this is almost impossible in practice. Still, they would be quite happy to stop Lyon on their way to the Champions League.
Lyon received an unexpected gift with the loss of St. Etienne on Friday against Montpellier. Thus, the chances of Lyon retaining the third position have increased significantly. Even if they lose here, then they will have two easy games at paper, but if they win, they will make a serious hit and may mentally win this battle with St. Etienne. Lyon is in a tricky form, and in the last game they got a draw, 2-2, with Lille.
We are expecting a goal match. The reasons are clear – Lyon and Marseille have always been a symbol of the attacking football in France. Both teams have quality in attack, and rarely seem to go out for tactical leaps and wanderings. 4 of the last 5 games between these two teams finished with BTTS + Over 2.5 goals. Match Prediction – BTTS and Over 2.5 Goals at 1.82.
- 6 of the last 8 games for Marseille have BTTS + over 2.5 goals
- Each of the last 6 games of Lyon finished with BTTS + over 2.5 goals
