Marseille vs Lyon
MAR vs LYN MATCH PREVIEW:
Marseille will be hosting the 7 times Ligue 1 Champions Lyon at the Stade Velodrome in Ligue 1.
Both these teams were in action in midweek with the Europa League. While Marseille booked their place in the quarterfinals with an impressive 5-2 aggregate win over Athletic Bilbao, Lyon suffered a shock exit at the hand of CSKA Moscow despite them winning the first leg 0-1 in Russia.
That's why the hosts will be mentally stronger ahead of this match and also considering the fact that The Olympians won the last three games on the bounce may just give them an extra edge over their visitors.
While Lyon have hit the rock bottom of their form in the last two months or so. Though they won against Caen in their last Ligue 1 outing, before that the Les Gones were winless in their last Ligue 1 games.
Marseille are 3rd in the table, while Lyon sit a place below and five points behind their hosts in this match.

MAR vs LYN TEAM NEWS:
Valere Germain is expected to return to the starting XI after dropping out of the team on Thursday. Florian Thauvin only returned from the injury in the last game against Athletic Bilbao, so should be included for this match.
While Morgan Sanson is in-line to return to the starting XI after failing to make the starting XI in midweek.
Mandanda (GK); Sarr, Rami, Rolando, Sakai, Anguissa, Gustavo, Thauvin, Sanson, Payet, Germain
Nabil Fekir is definitely out due to the injury and won't return until after the international break, while former Manchester United wing-back Rafael is a doubt for the away side.
Myziane Maolida showed the glimpses of his talent against Caen and could start on the left once more, allowing Houssem Aouar to play his more natural role in midfield.
Lopes (GK); tet, Marcelo, Morel, Marcal, Aouar, Tousart, NDombele, Maolida, Mariano, Traore
Marseille – 9 Ligue 1 titles
Lyon- 7 Ligue 1 titles
Head 2 Head- 49 meetings in official matches

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Marseille are too strong for the visitors. Also, considering the fact that Lyon are struggling for the results and were dumped pout from the Europa League in the midweek, we are expecting Marseille to finish the job against the visitors.
So calling a Marseille win looks a good bet.
