Team News

  • Marseille have just one absentee in defender Souleymane Diawara, who has a thigh problem.
  • However Elie Baup will still be able to choose from a near fully fit squad, as he looks to build on the win over Toulouse.
  • Saint-Etienne have no new injury worries but will be without striker Brandao, who has a hamstring injury, and defender Jean-Pascal Mignot, who is also out with a thigh problem.
  • Moustapha Bayal Sall is suspended, while Ismael Diomande and Banel Nicolita remain on the sidelines.

Prediction

  • Marseille welcome Saint-Etienne to Provence hoping to keep pace with PSG and Lyon in the Ligue 1 title race.
  • L'OM gained a hard-fought win over Toulouse last weekend thanks to a strike from Andre-Pierre Gignac, who appears to be back to form following a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
  • They face a Les Verts' side that has seen their form drop dramatically in recent times, and the visitors will need top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to be at his best if they are to beat a Marseille team that is notoriously difficult to overcome at the Stade Velodrome.
  • The final clash of the first half of the season should be an open and exciting game with plenty of goalmouth action, however with the vociferous home crowd on their side, Marseille may just be able to edge to victory.
