Saint-Etienne vs Marseille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 5th February 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.
The evening game in midweek in Ligue 1 will see Saint Etienne pit themselves against Marseille.
The home side are in 15th place and have lost 4 of their last 5 games and they are free falling quite quick. They currently have 28 points and will feel they have a good safety net to the bottom three but their form has been worrying. At the weekend they lost to Metz 3-1 which sums up the confidence of their players right now.
Home form is better but they have still lost 2 from their last four, though they did win their last match here beating Nimes 2-1.
Marseille come here probably feeling sorry for themselves because their last two matches have ended in draws, this wipes out their faint hopes of winning the league and they have fallen 12 points behind PSG, at this stage of the season that is simply too much.
But the club have other problems and that is keeping 2nd place. Rennes are now 3 points behind them and they have become a real threat. The good news for Marseille is that they have not lost in over 10 games but they are drawing too much.

Saint-Etienne vs Marseille: Prediction
Saint Etienne are there to be beaten and have really struggled especially against the better teams.
Marseille though have slumped and also they do not have a good record coming here. The club do have the 2nd best away record in the league though and have won 5 games from 11 on the road, that includes winning 3 from their last five and they are unbeaten this year away from home.
We will back Marseille to win this game and get back on track and also they will need to score at least 2 goals if they are going to win this.
