LYN vs MAR Dream11 Team Prediction | Ligue 1– Marseille vs Lyon Fantasy Team News

LYN vs MAR Dream11 Match Preview, Team News, Lineups

Marseille welcome Olympique Lyonnais for the 36th Ligue 1 fixture of the season at Stade Vélodrome, on Monday (IST).

With St-Etienne losing 0-1 to Montpellier on Friday night, Lyon have a golden opportunity to nail down the coveted 3rd place. Unlike the other top-4 European Leagues, only 3 teams are guaranteed to qualify for the Champions League. So a lot is riding in the next three games for Lyon, and the quest starts here from this match.

Marseille are certain to finish outside the top-four. A lot was expected from them after their dream run to the final of the UEFA Europa League last season, but the Les Olympiens failed to build on that achievement.

What has been the biggest highlight of India's tour of Australia 2020-21?

The 1993 UEFA Champions League winner are sitting 6th on the table, 8 points behind their opponents in this game. But they can still qualify for the Europa League as Montpellier are only three points above them on the table.

Match Details:

The Ligue 1 match will be played between Marseille and Lyon at Stade Vélodrome, Marseille, France. The ground has a capacity of 67,394.
The game will start at 12:30 AM (IST), on Monday, May 13.

Team News:



Injured – None.
Suspended – None.
Doubtful – Florian Thauvin and Bouna Sarr will be assessed before the match.
Note: With Sarr struggling with fitness, Hiroki Sakai may be asked to play on the right flank.

Probable XI: Mandanda (GK), Amavi, Kamara, Caleta-Car, Sakai, Lopez, Gustavo, Ocampos, Payet, Germain, Balotelli




Injured – Amine Gouiri, Marcal and Rafael will be missing the game for the visitors.
Suspended – None.
Doubtful – Tom Cleverley remains a doubt.
Note: Lyon manager Bruno Génésio went with a 3-man backline in the last game, but the move didn't materialize as Lille held them to a 2-2 draw at home. Expect Lyon to go with 4-4-2 or a more familiar formation with four men at the back.
