Two most titled teams of France will face in a very important game fighting for needed 3 points in Ligue 1. While Paris Saint Germain dominating once again, Marseille and Lyon facing troubles and difficulties.

During the last 5 meetings, Lyon took 4 victories and only once lost in Coupe de France 1/16 Finals, even after extra time. Read our thoughts about this Ligue 1 Marseille vs Lyon match, here below.

Marseille vs Lyon

Since 2013/14 season Marseille can’t take higher than 4th place. Last year they failed to take promotional place to European competitions, so should strongly prepare and play every Ligue 1 match at full potential. Lyon plays in Champions League, so they have to play with rotational squad reaching season goals. In the local championship, Marseille stands at a higher place, but the difference in points is only 3. In general, this year gives us a very interesting French League, where at the moment between 15th and 2nd places only 5 points. That shows very strong competition here in France and interesting season waits for us in the near future. The Phocaeans won the last game over the Lille, however, they faced very strong defence and hard, but reached 3 important points. In the whole game, the Olympians made only 1 shot on goal, though, won the game with 2:1 result. Previously they lost to Monaco and Paris SG. By the way, at home, Marseille lost only opening Ligue 1 match against Reims. Lyons after very weak start collecting points in 3 last games in a row. They won over the Metz at home, then in a road match, they defeated Toulouse with 3:2 result and finally took a strong victory over the Benfica in CL.

Absence

Unfortunately, Marseille will play without Florian Thauvin due to injury and Hiroki Sakai, Duje Caleta-Car and Jorda Amavi will only watch this game due to yellow card suspensions. Lyon will play without Memphis Depay and Lucas Tousart due to injuries.
