Marseille’s European campaign came to an abrupt end as they lost four of their six Champions League group fixtures to finish at the bottom of Group D. The Olympians took the lead against Spurs through Chancel Mangulu, on the stroke of half-time, but the English outfit came out all guns blazing in the second half and netted twice to secure the win. With no more European football on the menu for the rest of the season, the Phocaens can focus all their efforts on reigniting a faltering domestic campaign.
Marseille’s last league match against Strasbourg ended in a 2-2 draw courtesy of goals from Bamba Dieng and Issa Kabore. Lyon, on the other hand, have won their last two games against Montpellier and Lille. Last time out, against Lille, Alexandre Lacazette’s lone goal in the 74th-minute separated the two sides at Parc Olympique Lyonnais. It was Lyon’s sixth league-win of the season.
Marseille probable starting lineup: Lopez, Mbemba, Balerdi, Gigot, Clauss, Veretout, Guendouzi, Tavares, Payet, Under, Sanchez
Lyon probable starting lineup: Lopes, Lukeba, Boateng, Diomande, Gusto, Mendes, Aouar, Caqueret, Tagliafico, Cembele, Lacazette
