St. Etienne vs Marseille – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On the side of Marseille, there isn’t Mandanda, Thauvin, Rami (serving the national team) and Payet, who is recovering from injury,
but they still have heavy artillery to create several problems on the opposing defence, as Mitroglou, German or even Balotelli,
that is the main signing made by the club for this new season. As for St. Etienne, they won’t really change what they presented last season,
since they didn’t make that many changes so a lot of work is also expected for the Marseille’s defence, against an attack that scored in 17 of the last 18 matches played.
Both sides have already played 1 pre-seaso friendly, with Marseille being beaten 2-1 by Beziers and St. Etienne battering Andrezieux by 7-0.
The consistency with which these two teams score seems to have continued into this new season, so I believe they will both score, also benefiting from the typical characteristics of a friendly match.
