Marseille have turned into draw specialists, sharing the spoils in ten of their last 14 home games.
Marseille v Lyon - Sunday 19:45, BT Sport 1
Marseille are licking their wounds following their derby day defeat to Nice, despite holding a one goal advantage with just 15 minutes to go. They return to the Stade Velodrome with their fair share of injury problems as no fewer than four regular midfielders struggling to be fit for this clash.
Lyon suffered a shock defeat at home to Bordeaux last weekend but they were able to recover to overcome Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League. They are bereft of attacking options as they find themselves in somewhat of an injury crisis with four regulars in the treatment room including the instrumental Alexandre Lacazette. In the past two seasons’ they’ve won just two of the nine games he’s failed to start compared 40/69 when he has.
OM failed to beat a top-six side at home last term where they’ve turned into draw specialists recently, sharing the spoils in 10 of their last 14 here. Four of the last six meetings between these two have also ended all-square and given the current injuries for both parties they’ll probably be happy with a point again, so we’re going to back thedraw.
