Sunday, 16.04.2017, at 22:00, play Marseille vs Saint Etienne, a duel of round number 33 of Ligue 1.
Marseille makes a good season with Rudi Garcia on the bench , managing to situate in the upper half of the rankings, occupying 6th place with 48 points, unbeaten in last five matches, this comes after three consecutive draws in front of teams from all over the league rankings.
For example, in the last round, OM made 0 – 0 with Toulouse, and now they are back at home, where they did very well getting 34 points from 48 possible. Moreover, PSG and Monaco are the only 2 teams that have won all three points in dispute from the “Stade Vélodrome” and the only ones that managed to socre more than 1 goal on Marseille.
Saint Etienne is listed second chance, and a possible victory “Stade Vélodrome” would be a real surprise, “white greens” failing to do so in the last 18 years. Mate rankings with Marseile, Saint Etienne is ranked 7 with 45 points, having one of the strongest defenses in Ligue 1 with 25 goals conceded.
In the last four games, Saint Etienne has avoided defeat thanks to three draws and a success to the limit 1-0 Dijon, in the latest dispute on foreign land. Moreover, Saint Etienne has trouble making memorable away games, but this year has exceeded his condition, managing to win 17 points in away games.
Marseille vs Saint Etienne : Probable Teams
Marseille : Pele – Sakai – Sertic – Rolando – Bedimo – Lopez – Vainqueur – Sanson – Lopez – Thauvin – Gomis – Payet
Saint Etienne : Ruffier – Gabriel – Catherine – Lacoix – M’Bengue – Saivet – Veretout – Corgnet – Monnet Paquet – Hamouma – Beric
It will be a great match, this because it is a derby pf the teams that dominated the French championship between 60-70. On the other hand, I expect Payet & Co. have more opportunities, taking advantage of the fact that the game is played on “Velodrome” and OM to rise for at least a half above the football played by Saint Etienne.
