Friday, September 18, 2020 12:30 AM
Two sides looking to take care of their 100% start to the Ligue 1 season will bully off on Thursday evening as Marseille play host to Saint-Etienne at the Orange Velodrome.
Marseille have triumphed over Brest and Paris Saint-Germain within the early stages of the season, while Saint-Etienne have recorded back-to-back 2-0 victories against Lorient and Strasbourg.
Marseille’s first Classique victory over PSG since 2011 was marred by ugly scenes at the top of the sport , with five players huff following a mass brawl.
Marseille vs Saint-Etienne Dream11 Preview
Florian Thauvin’s first-half goal paved the way for a Marseille victory, but Andre Villas-Boas soon witnessed two of his players in Jordan Amavi and Dario Benedetto receive their marching orders, while PSG trio Neymar, Layvin Kurzawa and Leandro Paredes were also made to require the walk of shame.
Neymar has since accused Marseille defender Alvaro Gonzalez of creating a racist comment towards him, and therefore the 30-year-old might be facing a lengthy ban if found guilty, but Marseille ultimately persisted for the win at the Parc des Princes.
Les Olympiens overcame Brest within the opening weekend and now occupy fifth spot – just one point below Lille, Monaco and Rennes – all of whom have played a game more.
With PSG bound to recover from their dismal start to the campaign as more of their stars get over coronavirus, Villas-Boas knows that his side cannot afford any early slip-ups if the challengers are to finish PSG’s reign of dominance within the French football scene.
Marseille are now gearing up for his or her return to the Orange Velodrome – a ground where they only suffered defeat twice season – but Villas-Boas’s side only managed to win one among their last four on familiar territory during the 2019-20 Ligue 1 campaign.
Meanwhile, Saint-Etienne followed up their comfortable 2-0 victory over Lorient with another win by an equivalent scoreline against Strasbourg last outing .
Denis Bouanga and Mahdi Camara both found the rear of internet for Claude Puel’s side, who will now look to finish a seven-game streak faraway from range in the French top flight.
Saint-Etienne haven’t picked up some extent on their travels since November and only won four away matches throughout the curtailed 2019-20 campaign, but the first signs are promising for Puel’s men as they steel oneself against a testing midweek fixture.
MAR vs STE Dream11 Prediction
However, Marseille have taken the spoils without shipping a goal within the last three meetings between the 2 clubs, and Saint-Etienne have only prevailed twice in their last 26 matches with Les Olympiens altogether competitions.
With Rennes, Monaco and Lille not in action until the weekend, Saint-Etienne just need some extent on Thursday to travel top of the table due to their superior goal difference.
Marseille are going to be without Amavi and Benedetto due to their red cards in Le Classique, while Bouna Sarr and Morgan Sanson are both facing a race to be fit after missing out the weekend victory.
Valere Germain might be handed the prospect to impress up top in Benedetto’s absence, while veteran defender Yuto Nagamoto is in contention to start out on the left-hand side of defence.
While it remains to be seen what action – if any – are going to be taken against Gonzalez amid allegations of racism, Leonardo Balerdi could replace the Spaniard within the heart of the Marseille defence.
Meanwhile, Saint-Etienne left-back Miguel Trauco has fully recovered from coronavirus, but the Peru international had to form do with a spot within the reserve team last weekend.
Fellow defender Wesley Fofana is that the subject of reported interest from Leicester City, but Puel’s side are understood to possess rejected a bid of £25m from the Foxes for the 19-year-old.
Arnaud Nordin was forced off within the 51st minute of the victory against Strasbourg and isn’t expected to play a neighborhood during this one.
Tip: Marseille 2-1 Saint-Etienne
Both clubs have enjoyed strong starts to the new campaigns and fans should be certain an entertaining spectacle in midweek. However, Saint-Etienne’s recent record against Marseille is nothing in need of abysmal, and while Puel’s side are bound to put up an honest fight, we expect Marseille to prevail during a closely-fought encounter.
