Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Olympique Marseille and Saint Etienne, the two famous French clubs, go head to head at Stade Velodrome in the opening match of the season. Olympique Marseille chiefs did well to keep hold of key players in the summer transfer window, and, as a result, Andre Villas-Boas’ troops are seen as favourites to win Friday’s football match. Argentina international Dario Benedetto is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts.
Les Verts, on the other hand, failed to impress in the Ligue 1 last season, with the team finishing the process in the 17th position in the standings. St Etienne are eager to make amends for the unsuccessful campaign, but beating OM at Stade Velodrome is easier said than done. In their last meeting at the venue Olympique Marseille emerged triumphant, and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their fourth consecutive win over Saint Etienne.
