Marseille are without a win on their travels in Ligue 1 this season and they are unlikely to change that statistic at Saint-Etienne today.
Les Verts’ form has tailed off a bit of late after a bright start to the season, but they’re still only three points off fourth place and in contention for European qualification.
Marseille have struggled for goals, managing just 13 in 14 outings so far, and with Saint-Etienne boasting the third-best defence in the division – behind only Paris Saint-Germain and Nice – the visitors could find chances few and far between this evening.
L’OM have picked up just two points away from the comforts of the Stade Velodrome so far this season and in their previous two games on the road they’ve conceded seven goals and managed just one of their own.
Saint-Etienne have only 12 points to show from seven home games but they’ve only tasted defeat once at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard, against high-flying Nice, and should prove too strong for Marseille, as they look to get back to winning ways.
Saint-Etienne are 23/20 to win the match and that is my top bet for this encounter.
