MAR vs STE Dream11 Prediction: Two sides looking to keep their unbeaten spin intact lock heads in the league.
Marseille couldn’t have augured for a better way to make a foray into today’s impending match-up against St. Etienne. Defeating hated rivals PSG the last time around, the club not only foraged its second successive win in the league but also a much yearned for win against last season’s champions.
The win had to come at a cost though. A fracas in the culminating stages of their derby clash against PSG lead to Marseille seeing two of their players being red carded in the 97 th minute, a period which saw a total of 5 red cards being dished out.
It was down to PSG’s irritation at being putdown by Marseille, one which saw tempers flare between the two ranks. Proceeding the squabble, Marseille were quick to hit out at PSG and rub their faces with a slew of players taking jibes at the reigning champions for the result.
MAR vs STE Probable Winner
Buoyed by that result, Marseille will be looking to make it two wins on the bounce when they play their first home fixture today. The club shifts back to its bastion, one where it lost a measly two ties in the bygone season.
However, this could end up being a tricky affair for the side. They are up against an invigorated Marseille side, a team which has registered 2-0 wins in each of its opening couple of fixtures.
Marseille will be a completely different proposition though. St. Etienne have managed to defeat Marseille a mere 2 times in the last 26 meetings between the two sides with us envisaging them suffering another defeat today as well.
Probable Playing XI
Jordan and Dario are both going to be unavailable for Marseille today in lieu of their injuries.
Silva’s injury means he’ll sit out the skirmish.
Mandanda, Sakai, Caleta-Car, Balerdi, Nagamoto, Kamara, Strootman, Rongier, Thauvin, Germain, Payet.
Moulin, Debuchy, Fofana, Kolodziejczak, Macon, Neyou, Camara, Abi, Aouchiche, Bouanga, Hamouma.
Marseille – Thauvin: 2 Goals, 2 Assists.
St Etienne – Romain: 2 Goals.
MAR vs STE Dream11 Prediction
St. Etienne’s Jessy Moulin will be inducted in our Dream 11 side as the goal-keeper for this one. The shot stopper’s knowhow has been crucial to their two wins on the bounce with him acting as the watchdog of the side’s goal to forage two cleansheets for the side.
Marseille had to dig deep against PSG but the club eventually managed to persevere and pull off a cleansheet in the bygone showdown. Its one which instils confidence in us to see us opt for a trivalent of picks from the side.
We’ll be beginning with the selection of CB Duje Caleta-Car. He’s scored twice for the club already with his two goals in the side’s season opener crucial to it registering a 3-2 win.
With Marseille having failed to have won their last seven away encounters, this looks set to be another dicey affair for them. They’ll have cold feet when trying to score to see Marseille’s Boubacar Kamara and Hirko Sakai both find a place in our setup.
His assist against Bordeaux makes Morgan Sanson the first pick from Marseille in this docket. Joining up with him is counterpart Valentin Rongier, someone whose not only quashed attacking plays but transitioned the ball from defence to attack as well.
Elsewhere, St. Etienne will see us hammer down a duo from the club. Both Mahdi Camara and Denis Bouanga has scored the one goal apiece for the club, two players who have moved in unison to lead the side’s consummate success.
Linking up with the two is the club’s top scorer. With two goals, Romain Hamouma has scored 50% of his side’s goals, a player capable of keeping his side’s unbeaten run intact today.
Marseille had Florian Thauvin to thank once again the last time around. His goal against PSG was the only goal of the affair, one which saw the striker yet again win the match for his side.
Dmitri Payet got an assist in his first appearance of the season, one Florian scored off to make him the second pick from the club.
