Match Preview

Les Phocéens welcome Olympique Lyonnais to the Orange Vélodrome on Sunday for this Ligue 1 match known as Choc des Olympiques (or Clash of the Olympics in English).

Marseille needs seven points to secure a spot in the Champions League group stage draw next season. Lyon will be hoping a strong end of the season can close the gap on those above them to sneak into contention for the UEFA Europa Conference League place next season.

Olympique Marseille come into the match on a run of three home wins in a row. They have picked up 15 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

L'OM won their last league match away to Stade Reims. Expected goals of 0.7 to 0.5 in favour of Reims indicates Marseille didn't deserve all three points on the balance of chances created. In truth, it was an abject attacking performance from Les Olympiens who had 12 of their 13 shots from 20+ yards before the goal from an injury-time Payet set-piece. Gerson was the goalscoring hero for Marseille getting on the end of Payet’s corner which puts him on six league goals this season for Marseille and is 9.5/1 to get on the opening goal of the game again here. The final score of the match was 0-1.

Their opponent on Sunday, Olympique Lyonnais, come into the match on a run of three away league games without a win. They have picked up 11 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

The Kids won an exciting game in their last league match at home to Montpellier HSC. Expected goals of 3.4 to 2.0 in favour of Lyon indicates it was likely a fair result. Les Gones's Houssem Aouar was in good form as he scored a brace of goals against Montpellier. Aouar now has five goals this season in the league for Lyon and is 4/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 5-2.

Olympique Marseille team news

Cengiz Ünder (knee injury), Konrad de la Fuente (keyhole surgery) and Leonardo Balerdi (shoulder injury) will be unavailable for Les Phocéens due to injury on Sunday.

Olympique Marseille are likely to bring Gerson and Dimitri Payet into the starting eleven after combining off the bench to win the game at Reims. Duje Caleta-Car also continued his comeback from injury with a ten-minute cameo here and should start if he proves his fitness.

Olympique Lyonnais team news

Damien Da Silva was replaced by Jérôme Boateng just 35 minutes into the match against Montpellier making him a major doubt for this one.

Injuries will also rule out Rayan Cherki (metatarsal fracture) and Sinaly Diomandé (ankle surgery) for the trip to the Orange Vélodrome.
