Marseille vs St.Etienne Prediction
For betting, I would suggest going for over 2.5 goals in the game to be scored in total. The reason why I say this is because St.Etienne has scored in two of the three games in this season and one was an away game. Marseille has found their lost scoring legs back from the last win in the league. Moreover, the teams have an average of 2.8 goals per match from their recent five meetings at this venue.
Marseille has been unbeaten in the matches against Etienne squad for the past twenty years. They even carried three clean sheets in the recent five encounters at home. Marseille fared with a 2-0 score on the board from their last meeting in the previous season. Hence, it seems probable that the host with the home advantage will be more likely to take the three points out of the bout.
