Marseille vs St Etienne Match Preview
Just days after bouncing back to the winning ways with all three points bagged at Nice (1-2), where Dario Benedetto took the lead in the first half and Dimitri Payet sealed the deal converting a penalty kick in the second despite conceding from the spot in the process as well.
Les Phoceens have seen a troubled start of the campaign and this will be a much-needed boost to their confidence, after seeing Reims (0-2) snatch all three points at this ground and dropping one in a goalless draw at Nantes. They will now want a dominant display up front and the possible return of Maxime Lopez and Florian Thauvin to the pitch could make woes easier to overcome.
St Etienne have, quite contrary, started the cam with four points in the first two outings but saw a disappointing trip to Lille (3-0) earlier this week, which will be quite something to shake off ahead of the trip to Orange Velodrome – where they snatched just one win in 14 head-to-head clashes.
Les Verts beat Dijon (1-2) and held Brest to a 1-1 draw early on but the struggles at Stade Pierre-Mauroy will be much more worrying. They haven’t been able to keep it together at the back and Ghislain Printant will need to find a quick fix if his men are to do better on Sunday evening.
We don’t see them making it happen and we’ll now stick with Marseille to bag another narrow win here, going for it at 21/20 with bet365 as it shapes to be a great value – if we’re to judge by the sides’ performances this week already.
While St Etienne have struggled for goalscoring consistency, we do see them making an impact and making this an exciting occasion too. With such hopes in mind, we’re now also backing a high-scoring contest with Over 2.5 Goals FT at 9/10 with Unibet.
