Saint-Etienne welcomes Olympique Marseille
Saint-Etienne welcomes Olympique Marseille in a match from the 20th round of the French Ligue 1. Here is what we have to say about this fixture in our predictions football 1×2.
So far Saint-Etienne are 4th in the Ligue 1 standings with 33 points, doing very well since the beginning of the campaign. They are on par with the 3rd Olympique Lyonnais, so finishing in the Top 3 and qualifying for the Champions League is a pretty much a realistic goal for them. At this moment their record in the league shows 9 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses.
In their last five matches in the league Saint-Etienne enjoyed three wins, proving to be a serious contender in the league. This also happened in their last fixture, when they won their visit to Guingamp. They needed only one goal in order to do this, scored by Wahbi Kzahri after just 6 minutes of playing.
It’s been awhile since Saint-Etienne played in the Champions League. For them this season is an amazing opportunity to fight for something like this. All they have to do is keep winning.
Things are much more messed up for Olympique Marseille at the moment. Rudi Garcia’s team is currently 9th in the league standings with 28 points and a record of 8 wins, 4 draws and 6 defeats. This is certainly not good for a club which usually fights for a qualification for the Champions League. Marseille are still just 5 points behind the Top 3, so their chances for a better position in the league remain alive, but only if they manage to improve and start producing better results.
These are our predictions football 1×2 for the Ligue 1 fixture between Saint-Etienne and Olympique Marseille from the 20th round of the league. We can say that this game is pretty important for both sides, so let’s see.
