Both Teams to Find the Net

Marseille comes into this fixture desperate to land top five finish this season. They are currently sixth, 56 points par with fifth-placed Lens. The visitors need at least a goal to go fifth and steer clear of seventh-placed Rennes. With such a quest, we expect an open game from Marseille, which is why we see them conceding to Saint-Etienne. Notably, Marseille has only kept two clean sheets in the last ten fixtures, conceding an average of two goals per match within that duration. On the other hand, Saint-Etienne has equally let in goals in eight of their last ten fixtures. Backing Marseille to also go all-out to score as they battle for the top-five makes sense in this scenario.

Victory or at Least a Point for Saint-Etienne

While Saint-Etienne is not the bookies’ favourites in this game, we think otherwise. The hosts are looking to win the double against Marseille this season. They bagged three points in the reverse fixture in a match that ended 2-0. Also, looking at how Marseille has struggled defensively, backing the hosts to score is a good bet. On top of that, home advantage in the second meeting of the season will equally play significance. Marseille has won only one of their last five away games, drawing one and losing four.

At Least Three Goals Expected

There have been eighteen meetings between the two teams since 2013, eight of which ended with more than two goals. While backing a high scoring match looks unpopular if we factor in the previous encounters, a preview of recent performances brings our argument closer home. The hosts have seen more than two goals in five of their six previous fixtures. Moreover, Marseille has seen at least three goals in four of their last six games.

Game Preview: Can Saint-Etienne Win the Double Against Marseille?

Victory for Saint-Etienne means they complete the double against Marseille. But can they stop the visitors from qualifying for the Conference League? More details in our game preview.

Saint-Etienne

The hosts come into this fixture with one mission. They want to complete the double and collect six points from Marseille this season. Finishing the season strongly is also on the books. Saint-Etienne has had only two homeĀ  Ligue 1 victories against Marseille since 2013, which is why we are taking a cautious approach of giving the hosts a double chance. Something even more noteworthy is that Saint-Etienne bagged away victory at Marseille for the first time in Ligue 1. With that in mind, home victory since January 2019 looks plausible.

Marseille

Marseille has registered some good results against Saint-Etienne, winning nine and drawing five in the previous 18 encounters. It means ruling out the visitors from winning is out of not easy. A five-match undefeated run, scoring an average of two goals per match within that duration means Marseille will likely find the net at Stade Geoffroy Guichard. However, overturning the reverse fixture and collecting three points from Saint-Etienne this season depends on how the visitors will organize themselves defensively.
