The Marseille vs Lyon match will be played on Tuesday, at the Velodrome stadium, Marseille. This is the best of 32 round in Coupe de France. The winner of this match will qualify for the next phase of the competition.

STATS

  • Marseille recorded 4 victories in their last 6 matches in all competitions. In their last 5 matches both teams scored at least one goal every time.
  • Lyon also won 4 out of their last 6 matches in all competitions. In their last 3 matches both teams scored at least one goal.

HEAD TO HEAD

In their previous 10 meetings Marseille recorded one victory, Lyon recorded 3 victories, while 6 matches ended as a draw. According to tradition, we might see an extra time in the forthcoming match.

MARSEILLE NEWS

Marseille is currently 6th on the table with 33 points, which is 4 points less than 4th placed Lyon. It seems that Coupe de France is their last chance to win the trophy this season, but they would prefer to fight for a place that leads to European competitions. So, they might give a chance to the players that didn't have much playing time this season. Marseille was in the series of 2 consecutive defeats in the league and one of them came against Lyon, two weeks ago. However, they recorded an excellent 5-1 victory against Montpellier afterwards and they will certainly seek revenge in the forthcoming match.

LYON NEWS

Lyon recorded only one victory in their last 3 matches and that one victory came against Marseille. Like Marseille, this competition isn't a priority for Lyon, but since they are playing against a tough opponent, Lyon will certainly try to win the forthcoming match.

SUMMING UP!


Both teams might field up players who have less playtime this season. However, that doesn't mean that this match will be less competitive.
