On Wednesday night, Saint Etienne host Marseille at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard in Ligue One, as the home side look to continue their good recent league form.

Saint-Étienne are currently fourth in Ligue One, only behind third-place Lyon by virtue of an inferior goal difference. However, Les Verts are 17 points behind league leaders PSG.

The home side head into this game on the back of a three-game unbeaten run in the French top-flight. Last time out, they recorded a 1-0 win at struggling Guingamp. The win followed a 3-0 home victory over Dijon.

A big factor in Les Verts good league campaign so far has been their strong home form, as they are unbeaten in ten home games in Ligue One, having recorded eight wins in the process.

The home side has also been prolific on home soil of late in Ligue One, scoring over 2.5 goals in six of their last seven matches.

Marseille have slipped to ninth place in Ligue One after a four-game winless run. OM have drawn three of their last four league games, including last time out in a 1-1 home draw with struggling Monaco.

Marseille’s recent Ligue One games have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in three of their last four league matches.

OM have a poor recent away record in the French top-flight, as they have won just two of their last seven matches on their travels. Their recent away games in Ligue One have been high scoring though, with over 2.5 goals scored in eight of their last ten away games.

Despite the recent negatives for the visitors, Marseille are unbeaten in their last ten meetings with the home side in all competitions.

Forebet predicts that Saint-Etienne will record a victory in a low scoring game to enhance their position within Ligue One’s top-four.
