MAR vs STE Dream11 Prediction: Marseille will be looking to pick up another three points in Ligue 1 this season when they play hosts to St-Etienne. It’s a 100% record from two games so far for Marseille but all the talk from their 0-1 win at PSG last time out was centred around the injury-time brawl that saw five players dismissed. Boss Andre Viilas-Boas will therefore be missing Jordan Amavi and Dario Benedetto through suspension for this match which is the last thing they need against a team who also boast maximum points from their two outings. This will be Saint-Etienne’s first away trip of the season though and they really struggled on the road last term, losing their last seven away games of the curtailed 2019-20 season. Claude Puel will be demanding improvement in that area but Marseille – despite being forced into a couple of changes – are fancied to take all three points here.
