Lyon vs Marseille Preview

Lyon vs Marseille

Competition – France Ligue 1

Stadium – Stade des Lumières

Date: 17th December 2017

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

This game is one of the cracking fixtures of this weekend as these two sides look to keep the pressure on league leaders PSG and at least claim a Champions League spot at the end of the season.

Lyon head into this game in a very tough time after a great start to the season.

Prior to this month, they had been in great form dispatching teams with relative ease.

However, since the end of November they lost to Lille in the league, Atalanta in the Europa League and fell to another 4-1 loss at Montpelier in their last competitive game.

They remain the second highest scorers in the division with 47 goals thanks to the form of Nabir Fekir, Mariano Diaz, and Memphis Depay and will be looking to get a couple of goals here also.

Marseille are on a better run of form than their host heading into this game and they should be contented with a draw here as they play struggling Troyes after this game and if they can pick up all three points here that would mean heading into the winter window ahead of Lyon in the league table.

Just like Lyon, they have won ten, drawn five and lost two of their seventeen league games this season.

Marseille have lost 16, won 9 and drawn 17 of their last 42 meetings with Lyon.
