St Etienne take on the visitors Marseille at “Stade Geoffroy-Guichard” in the matchday 25 of the French Ligue 1. The game will be played in Saint-Etienne on Friday, February 9th.
St Etienne have won last two fights in the Ligue 1 against Caen 2:1 and Amiens 2:0. Those two triumphs allowed “Les Verts” to get up to the 12th place in the table where it is sitting now with 29 points earned and 24-38 goals difference. St. Etienne are a home side as they have picked up 19 points with 17 goals for and 18 goals against in 12 encounters conducted at their own turf. After five-match home run without victories home “Les Verts” won three latest clashes played in face of their supporters with 6:1 aggregated scoreline.

In their turn, Marseille come up to the next battle within the Ligue 1 with eight-game unbeaten series covering six triumphs and two draws. “Les Olympiens” hailed a goal shower in the previous clash, having got 6:3 victory over Metz. The great competitive form which Marseille have recaptured in 2018, enabled the club to settle on the current second position in the Ligue 1 standings with 51 points taken and 53-27 goal difference. It is also not a problem for Rudi García’s team to perform on the road as it has collected 24 points in 12 away battles.
Last time Marseille was beaten by St. Etienne on the 18th of May 2013. Since then the rivals have met nine times, resulting in four draws and five victories of “Les Phoceens”. Marseille have thrashed “Les Verts” in last two head-to-heads with 4:0 and 3:0 scorelines. Thus, I would expect for another success of the visitors in the forthcoming clash.
Prediction for the match: Marseille to win.
