BTTS and over 2.5 goals @ 1/1 with Coral

Lyon finally managed to win in Ligue 1 last weekend. And we do mean finally. Victory over Paris Saint-Germain in January made headlines around the world. It looked like the dawn of a bright, sunshiny day for Lyon. Instead, it was the catalyst for a winless streak that would last nearly two months. They managed to halt a six-game winless run by defeating Caen 1-0 last weekend. It avenged a defeat they had suffered to the middling club in the French Cup a week earlier. With the monkey off their back, Lyon can travel to Marseille with a bit of freedom in their play this weekend. The fear factor curbed somewhat. Not to mention a deficit that is there to be reduced.

Trailing Marseille by five points, Lyon could go some way to avoiding a Champions League qualifier at the end of next summer by winning at the Velodrome this Sunday. That’s a tall order though. Marseille have earned third place thanks to an ensemble cast of attackers, including Dimitri Payet and Florian Thauvin.

Coral bet 10 get 30

The former Premier League misfits are firing this Marseille into Europe’s premier competition. When they’re not around, others step up to the plate. That includes the likes of Lucas Ocampos, who was on the scoresheet in a 2-1 win over Toulouse last weekend.

Lyon have had the better of Marseille in recent meetings. We’re excited by the prospect of another open contest between two of Ligue 1’s most exciting clubs.
