St Etienne – Marseille : Preview & Prediction
AS St Etienne has been in great difficulty for a month … The Forézien club has suffered 6 defeats in the last 8 days … A bad record which has made ASSE tumble to 15th place overall far from European ambitions displayed at the start of the season. Still in the Coupe de France race (trip to Epinal), ASSE took only 3 points against Nîmes (2-1) out of 18 possible during the last 6 days and has just broken his teeth in Metz (3- 1) this weekend. The arrival of OM comes at the worst of times because the visitors are in the thick of it. The Villas-Boas squad has been unbeaten for 14 games and is well established on the podium (2nd), 9 points ahead of Lille, 4th. The Marseille club, which just obtained a draw in Bordeaux (0-0) this Sunday evening, remained on a draw against Angers (0-0) and 1 qualification in the Coupe de France against Strasbourg (3-1). Very ambitious, the Marseille club moves to Forez to take the 3 points.
AS St Etienne have lost 3 of their last 6 matches.
OM have been undefeated since October 30.
Marseille are on a running streak of 14 games unbeaten.
The Marseille club is on 5 undefeated away matches in Ligue 1 (3 wins and 2 draws).
The Greens have lost 2 of their last 3 receptions.
The results of the last duels to OM’s advantage in official competitions: 7 wins and 5 draws against only 1 loss.
The state of form of OM should allow him to take points in the Cauldron against a Saint-Etienne team in great pain.
