This Sunday evening, OL host OM for an Olympico under high tension. If the two teams are not in a very good phase on a sporting level, this poster remains at high risk, especially after the incidents which punctuated the first leg, in October.

This Sunday evening, Olympique Lyonnais hosts Olympique de Marseille at the end of the 20th day of Ligue 1. A highly anticipated match despite the bad luck for both teams: OL are in 16th position, and OM 8th. , relegated to six points from the podium. But this match remains a very high risk poster, particularly because of the incidents in October.

Because players were stoned, the face of Fabio Grosso, the former Lyon coach, in blood... These are the sad images that we remember from the last confrontation between these two teams. On a sporting level, Lyon remains on two defeats in the league and will try to launch a positive dynamic after an ambitious winter transfer window.

Lyon hopes for “revenge”

The heavy 3-0 defeat during the last match against OM, Alexandre Lacazette, the Lyon striker, has not forgotten it. “Obviously, with what happened in the first match, we want to show that we are going to win. Afterwards, we know that it will be a very big match. It’s up to us to be present throughout the match. But there is this side of revenge, of course."

The Phocaeans, more irregular than ever, are also expected to turn the corner. After a draw conceded last weekend against Monaco, OM can no longer afford to stumble. Leonardo Balerdi, the Marseille defender, understood this well. "This match, we have to win it because for the supporters, it's a different match. And of course, we know that away from home, for us, it's a bit difficult. We're here to stop this situation ", insists the player.

To reverse the situation, Marseille should rely on the reappearance of several executives returning from the African Cup of Nations.
