Marseille vs. Lyon – Prediction (Ligue 1 – 10.11.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

Olympique Marseille have left September’s run of league draws in the dust, with a Ligue 1 (L1) record of W2, L2 since early October. Both wins saw them score twice on home turf, with the second goal in each match taking the form of either a penalty or opposition own-goal. Morgan Sanson scored Marseille’s opener in their last home win. Two-thirds (four) of his last six goals have arrived within the five regulation minutes either side of half-time. Very slight favourites ahead of this one, Marseille have prevailed by a one-goal margin in four of their last five individual halves of league football at Stade Vélodrome. On the topic of being betting favourites, they have an excellent record of W14, D6, L3 from home league matches entered as a favourite since August 2018.

Only one of Marseille’s last five home games has separated them from the opposition by over 1.5 goals. Just two (20%) of Lyon’s last ten L1 away wins have seen them lead at the break. Lyon have won the last five top-flight H2Hs, winning both halves on three occasions.

The last H2H here marks the most recent occasion the scoreline has separated a visiting L1 team from a hosting Marseille by 3+ goals. Lyon won 3-0, and relevantly, they have averaged exactly 3.0 goals per-match across their last five away victories in L1. Lyon’s Moussa Dembélé scored three of his side’s four goals across their last two L1 away draws. Each goal came during the first half of play. Lyon are mid-table for a reason though, and their return of W1, D2, L2 from their last five L1 road trips is arguably the cause. Both defeats saw the losing goal conceded inside the final ten minutes of the half in question, while both draws ended 2-2, with Lyon conceding last between 85’-FT.
