Betting tips and match preview | Ligue 1

Lyon host Marseille at the Stade des Lumieres, with both sides currently in mid table in Ligue 1 and looking to propel themselves up the table, they both come into this match on the back of wins and they are evenly matched coming into this fixture.

Lyon have struggled this season and find themselves 10th in Ligue 1 with a haul of 29 points, they come into this match in poor form despite a 2-0 win against Chambly in the Coupe de France. They will be looking to use home advantage in their quest to rediscover their winning touch and against a Marseille side that are in a similar moment, they will hope that they will be able to pick up a much needed three points. The gap between themselves and fourth placed Rennes is only five points and a run of games could see them climb up the table very quickly, in what is a very tight mid table in France.

Marseille find themselves in 9th position in Ligue 1, level on points with their hosts Lyon but they find themselves at the opposite end of the form table and come into this match also on the back of a 2-0 win against Montpellier. They are unbeaten in their last six fixtures but they have struggled to turn more performances into three points, they have four draws out of six and despite being hard to beat need to find the goals to finish teams off and they will need to do this quickly if they are to catch the early pace setters in Ligue 1.

Lyon are not in the best of form and will be looking to vastly improve on their record of four losses, one win and a draw in their last six Ligue 1 matches. Marseille however are in a much better vein of form with two wins and four draws from their last six Ligue 1 fixtures, their only concern at this stage will be to convert more draws to wins.

Both teams are 8/11 on to score. The first goalscorer odds for Lyon are Alexandre Lacazette at 9/2 with Aldo Kalulu Kyatengwa and Rachid Ghezzal at 13/2. For Marseille Michy Batshuayi is at 6/1 with Remy Cabella and G K NKoudou Mbida at 8/1.

The last time these sides played they drew 1-1 and the odds of the same score line are 5/1.
