Marseille – Saint Etienne, Ligue 1 Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR MARSEILLE - SAINT ETIENNE
Marseille finally played a valuable game. They got 3 points against Nice and ended the series with the poor start to the season. The Vilas-Boas team is bound to fight for the top 3, despite their poor condition from last season. Monaco will obviously be roaming again. Lille is weakened in attack, so Olympique has a way of getting into the Champions League, but for that they need to perform well in the home games, especially.
Saint-Etienne was totally raised and defeated by Lille. The defense of the greens is not what it was. Now they are experiencing ever greater difficulty in defending themselves synchronously, and there are too many individual mistakes. However, they also changed their playing style. The reason is not only the new team coach. St Etienne have sold their big star in defense, Saliba, to Arsenal, which is also a huge factor.
Expert view : We think there are likely to be goals here again, which is typical of a Saint-Etienne match recently. Marseille are favorites, but both teams are unpredictable at the moment. They can win and lose from almost every team in the league. Logic points in favor of Marseille, so we will bet on their goal in the second half. We think they will be able to score 1 or 2 goals, but most likely they will happen in the 2nd half, and they may need one then. Prediction – Marseille to score in the 2nd half at 1.60.
Marseille have scored 9 goals against St Etienne in their last 4 games
