Marseille vs Lyon: Prediction
Lyon again has injuries most significantly to Alexandre Lacazette who just is fit not right now. They beat Dinamo Zagreb 3-0 in the Champions League where they played a strange formation of 3-5-1-1. This worked for them and Lyon is thinking outside of the box now.
Marseille then with no European football have had 3 extra days rest than Lyon, however Lyon come into this game in better spirits. We should see a very entertaining game with many goals because as Marseille Coach Franck Passi admitted his team lack stamina.
