Marseille vs St Etienne Prediction & Betting tips
Runner-up Marseille receives the green-whites from St. Etienne. The guests from the Massif Central got off to an optimal start into the new season with two wins against Lorient and Strasbourg. However, the two opponents mentioned are currently out of shape and the Alsatians, for example, have so far received bankruptcies throughout.
The Phoceens cannot be less certified as having a successful start to the season. A win against Brest was followed by an impressive success at series champions PSG last Sunday evening. Olympique triumphed 1-0 in the Prinzenpark and celebrated a success against the archenemy from the Seine for the first time in almost nine years.
For the match in the Stade Velodrome between Marseille and Et. Etienne, the tip aims to ensure that the next three for the kicker from the south. More predictions about current games in Ligue 1 can be found in the France football tips category.
The footballers from the Mediterranean gave their US main owner Frank McCourt a lot of joy last season. The qualification for the Champions League was achieved as runner-up – for the first time in seven years.
The last appearance on the European stage in the Europa League two years ago was again disastrous with not a single win in six group games and instead five bankruptcies. In contrast, the start of the new season was successful again: Coach Andre Villas-Boas’s team won 3-2 at Brest, although the opponent had the better team that evening.
The second matchday turned out to be epic with the long-awaited win against Paris Saint-Germain, which, among other things, had to do without its top goal-getter Kylian Mbappe. Furthermore, the final phase of the game developed into a festival of evictions: no fewer than five actors were awarded red or yellow-red.
On the side of Marseille, defender Jordan Amavi and attacker Dario Benedetto – the best scorer of the past season – are now missing.
Another advantage this season is that the squad has hardly changed. This means that the team is already working comparatively well at this early point in the season. In addition, with Dimitri Payet in midfield and Bouna Sarr in defense, two important regular players have been available again after returning from quarantine since the previous matchday.
Payet in particular, the second best scorer of the past season, will be very committed as he has also been under contract with the opponent for several years. On the offensive, Florian Thauvin, an efficient attacker, is available again after a long injury break. The striker only played two games last season.
Now he scored on the first two match days and his double-digit yield in the three seasons before his serious injury makes it clear how important the 27-year-old is at Olympique.
In view of his stable condition and the failure of Benedetto in attack, the odds for a hit by the player of the Equipe Tricolor are on top with value in the encounter between Marseille and St. Etienne.
In contrast to its opponents, ASSE delivered a very weak season last year: In the end, when the competition was canceled prematurely, only 17th place came out. In addition, the first competitive game after the break was lost 0-1 in mid-July. Not an everyday match – it was rather the final in the Coupe de France.
The dream of winning the first cup in 23 years did not come true. Instead, like the upcoming opponent, a three-point at the start of the season against the promoted and Ligue 2 champions from Lorient. Both goals came from the tireless oldie Romain Hamouma, who is already in his ninth season in the storm with the record champions!
A 2-0 win against Strasbourg was also achieved on the second matchday, so the team is still waiting for the first goal of the season. Coach Claude Puel is currently complaining about various injured players. Among the particularly prominent players are the Brazilian Silva Gabriel and the Tunisian Wahbi Kahzri on the offensive.
The latter player not only scored 13 goals in the penultimate season, but also scored seven goals from his teammates – each of which was the top score in the club’s internal ranking! However, the performance fell significantly in the past season, which is why his failure is currently not that bad.
