Saint-Etienne Prediction

Following recent wins against Dijon and Guingamp, Saint-Etienne have lifted themselves up into 4th place in Ligue 1 and they’re now just four points adrift of 2nd placed Lille and an automatic entry into the Champions League group stages.

Saint-Etienne have suffered just two defeats from their last 10 matches in the French top flight which were losses to Lyon and Bordeaux, but it needs to be noted that both of these reverses happened away from home.

At their Stade Geoffroy-Guichard however, Saint-Etienne still remain unbeaten with a very solid record of 7-2-0 19/6 under their belts so far this season, with the hosts winning their last four home matches on the trot.

Recent wins over Angers, Reims, Nantes and Dijon should give the hosts the necessary momentum to capture a fifth league win on the bounce here, while forwards Khazri (10 goals) and Diony (5 goals) have provided the goals to date.


Key-Facts – Saint-Etienne v Marseille

  • Saint-Etienne still remain unbeaten at home this season in Ligue 1
  • Saint-Etienne have won their last 4 home matches on the trot
  • Marseille possess the worst defensive record away from home in Ligue 1


Marseille Prediction

9th placed Marseille have managed just two league wins from their last eight matches overall in Ligue 1 which were victories against Dijon and Amiens, but three draws and three defeats have resulted in the visitors slipping down to 9th on the league table.

Marseille have captured eight league wins so far this season with five of these being recorded at their Orange Vélodrome while away from home, the visitors possess an ordinary looking away record which stands at 3-1-5 13/20 which includes mixed returns in recent weeks on their travels.

Wins at Nice and Amiens have been offset by defeats at Montpellier and Nantes and this has contributed to Marseille’s inability to string together any sort of meaningful run of positive results.

In addition, Marseille’s defence continue to leak goals on the road as they possess the worst defensive record away from home in the French top flight. The visitors have kept just one clean sheet away from home all season, and have conceded 2 goals or more in 6 of their 9 away matches to date.

Betting Tips Verdict

Saint-Etienne have produced strong form at home this season while Marseille look like a team without direction.
