Marseille vs Saint-Etienne
French Ligue 1
Date: Thursday 17th September 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Velodrome.

Both of these sides have started well and so this clash could well be memorable and fans will be watching at home with excitement.

Marseille have just beaten the champions PSG 1-0 in their last game and that was their first victory over PSG since 2011. Marseille have played two games so far and are in 5th place with two wins.

The victory over PSG was overshadowed slightly as 5 players were incredibly sent off. Two of those were for Marseille so Dario Benedetto and Jordan Amavi will be missing for the hosts. But Marseille look in very good spirits and make no mistake even at this early stage will be thinking they can challenge for the title.

Saint Etienne have been solid with also two wins from two games. Last weekend they beat Strasbourg 2-0 and the club have started really well. Only themselves and Bordeaux are yet to concede a goal so far this season. Saint Etienne have not played away this season, so this trip will be fresh for them.

Marseille vs Saint-Etienne Head to Head

  • Last season Marseille won this game 1-0.
  • Marseille has won the last 3 meetings in a row.
  • Saint Etienne have no wins at Stade Velodrome in over 15 games.
  • There is a 60% chance to see under 2.5 goals.

Marseille vs Saint-Etienne Prediction

There are three things we have to consider: The first is that Marseille have the better players, they are the better team. The second is that Saint Etienne have two wins so far but have not played away, that is where the consistency will start to count. The third is that Saint Etienne have an awful record coming to this ground.

Everything points to a home victory, and Marseille will be very confident coming into this game. Their fans might be sceptical. For example beat PSG one week then lose your next game, that has been Marseille’s story this past decade, but we think they can keep up their good run and get a win in this game.
