Marseille v Lyon
Sunday 20:00

Rayo Vallecano 3 Granada 1 in the Madrid suburbs yesterday. The visitors stalled after a fast start, Rayo came roaring back and this column is really motoring.

All the way to France, where Marseille are entertaining Lyon in the big game from Ligue 1.

Marseille were 6-1 winners at Toulouse last weekend, while Lyon thumped Montpellier 5-1. Together they are the league's joint top scorers and this should be an encounter worth watching.

Both teams have scored in 9/10 of third-placed Marseille's most recent league games.

At the Stade Velodrome, Marcelo Bielsa's men have hit the back of the net twice or more in 12/13. Ten of those games delivered Over 2.5 Goals.

Lyon's last five visits to the southern city have brought 20 goals, with both teams scoring on each occasion.

This season Hubert Fournier's league leaders have helped 8/14 away games get over the goals line, scoring themselves in 11/14.

Marseille have just a single clean sheet from their last half dozen at the Velodrome.
