Marseille vs Saint-Etienne: Preview & Prediction
Betting houses see the hosts as certain favorites in winning this game, their share for a victory of 1.85. Still, I would not bet on them because they did not cross over the form and in the last 3 disputes they did not manage to impose. So for the match between Marseille and Saint-Etienne I chose a tip based on the number of goals, which I think will be quite small. See below my reasoned forecast, but also details and statistics about confrontation.
