Match Preview

The Greens welcome Olympique Marseille to the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard on Saturday for this Ligue 1 match. Les Verts completed a league double over Olympique Marseille last season. This included a 1-0 home win here back in May. Marseille will be out to return the favour here having already won their home match in this head to head this season.

AS Saint-Etienne come into the match on a run of four home league games undefeated. They have picked up nine points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

Sainté shared the points in their last league match at home to ESTAC Troyes. Expected goals of 1.2 to 1.1 in favour of Saint-Etienne indicates both teams probably deserved only a point.

It was Ryad Boudebouz's goal from the penalty spot that proved enough to rescue a point for Saint-Etienne. Boudebouz now has three league goals this season for Saint-Etienne and is 5.5/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 1-1.

Their opponent on Saturday, Olympique Marseille, come into the match on a run of three away league games undefeated. They have picked up 10 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

Les Phocéens won their last league match at home to OGC Nice. Expected goals of 1.7 to 1.6 in favour of Nice indicates Marseille didn't deserve all three points on the balance of chances created.

L’OM took until the second half to get going and needed a penalty to kick-start the match for them just after halftime. Les Olympiens’ Arkadiusz Milik stepped up to convert for his side with Cédric Bakambu adding a second with just minutes left on the clock. The final score of the match was 2-1.

Dimitri Payet is Olympique Marseille’s top scorer with nine goals in Ligue 1 this season and is 3.1/1 to score against AS Saint-Etienne on Saturday.
