Marseille look to move up the table when they take on Saint Etienne. Saint Etienne are one of the form teams in the Ligue 1 with four wins and a draw in their last five games. Saint Etienne will look to Bahebeck, Roux and Hamouma to lead the way attacking wise. Saitn Etienne are up to fourth in the table and they have been quality this season. Without a recognized goal scorer the team has been successful by spreading the goals around the side. Saint Etienne are unbeaten in their last four away games but this represents a tricky fixture with Marseille one of the teams that is tough to figure out.
Marseille look to close the gap on the top three. Marseille are currently six points from the top three although they are in eleventh in the league table. This Marseille team has been struggling all season and have been comletely unreliable. Batshuayi is a quality player and having a career year. With Diarra, Alessandrini and Fletcher also there to assist this team should be higher up the table and competing for at least a champions league spot.
This is one of those games that I think see's both teams cancel each other out. I am tempted by the price on Saint Etienne but I think the talent of the Marseille team can not be under estimated. This one is not one of my favourite games of the weekend it's really hard to handicap a game like this and I will be just having a small play on the draw.
