Game of the day from France as Marseille take on Lyon. Marseille won for the first time in five games last week and did it in style with a six one win last weekend. Marseille are trying to keep in touch with PSG and Lyon in one of the most competitive Ligue 1 seasons in recent history. Marseille are led by the experienced Andre Ayew and Gignac. Marseille will need both to be at their best tomorrow if they are to beat Lyon. The Stade Velodromme is a passionate stadium and the home crowd will be really up for the visit of Lyon tomorrow the question is can Marseille deliver a victory?
Lyon turned on the style last weekend when going away to Montpellier and winnign 5-1. Fekir and Lacazette netted a couple a piece last week and were terrific. Lacazette is having a career year with twenty three goals already this season. Lyon are a young team backboned by Lacazette, Fekir, Tolisso and Gourcuff. Sitting at the top of the table Lyon have shown great resiliance this season. A good performance when holding PSG to a 1-1 has been followed up with two strong wins and a draw.
This game should be an entertaining one and given the importance to both teams I think we will probably see some nerves on both sides. I am going to take both teams to score here as i believe that Lyon will take the game to Marseille tomorrow and Marseille's strong home form should lead to an open and even game. I am really looking forward to this one. I might have a small interest on Lyon on the straight win as I think they might just sneak this one but overall I think both teams to score is the value bet here.
