Olympique Lyonnais and Olympique Marseille
It’s going to be really interesting at the Groupama Stadium on Wednesday where Olympique Lyonnais and Olympique Marseille will face each other in a derby game from the 1/4-finals of the Coupe de France. Let’s discuss it in our football tips tonight, shall we?
We can say that this is the big derby of the 1/4-finals of the Coupe de France. Two of the best teams in France will face each other and just one game will decide which one will reach the 1/2-finals. Olympique Lyonnais are the team with a home advantage, but Olympique Marseille are doing better in the Ligue 1 so far, which maybe makes them a slight favourite.
In the previous round of the Coupe de France Olympique Lyonnais already went through a serious test. Rudi Garcia’s team visited Nice and celebrated a difficult 2-1 win, thanks to Houssem Aouar’s winning goal in the 93th minute. Moussa Dembele also scored for Les Gones at the Allianz Riviera.
For Olympique Lyonnais’ manager Rudi Garcia this is going to be a clash with his former club. It remains to be seen if this is going to help him master the perfect strategy for the match.
Olympique Marseille also met a Ligue 1 team during the 1/8-finals. They hosted Strasbourg and celebrated a 3-1 win at the Velodrome. Sarr, Payet and Kamara scored for the hosts, who are doing a good season under the management of Andre Villas-Boas. For the Portuguese manager this competition is a good chance to win his first trophy in France.
In our football tips tonight we expect a really competitive game between Olympique Lyonnais and Olympique Marseille on Wednesday. Both teams have different tools they can use to hurt the opponent. We expect a good tactical battle between Rudi Garcia and Andre Villas-Boas as well.
