Behind the untouchable PSG, Olympique de Marseille had a very convincing season last season by obtaining 2nd place in the standings when the season was definitively stopped. Also, after a 7-year absence, the Olympians will be back in the Champions League this season. Again ambitious, the men of André Villas-Boas perfectly negotiated their debut in this Ligue 1. Rather exciting in Brest, they also brought down PSG on Sunday night after an electric meeting (0-1). Their first victory in a Classic since 2011.
For its part, AS Saint-Etienne was scared last season. Indeed, she was not at all able to bounce back after obtaining 4th place in 2018-2019 and even feared for some time to keep her in the elite. Very quickly in difficulty, the Greens finished in 17th place in the standings. However, the Claude Puel players seem to have got back on the right track at the start of the season despite an average preparation. Indeed, the Stéphanois won their two matches played at home against Lorient (2-0) then Strasbourg (2-0).

The staff for Marseille vs Saint-Etienne

For the moment, OM has a workforce relatively similar to that of last season. Only the Sertic medium, which was not used at all, left. On the arrivals side, the taulier Alvaro Gonzalez signed definitively while the promising Balerdi (ex Dortmund) and Pape Gueye (ex Le Havre) came to strengthen the team. AVB will therefore still rely on its strong men, primarily Mandanda and Payet. Injured almost all of last season, Florian Thauvin will, of course, be very important in his right lane. He also started his season well by scoring 2 goals and delivering 2 assists in 2 games. Excluded Sunday evening against Paris, Benedetto and Amavi will be suspended for this meeting while Bouna Sarr is positive for the COVID.
For his 1st transfer window at the head of the Greens, Claude Puel decided in the quick. For the last internship before starting the season, the 30-year-olds with big salaries were dismissed or transferred (Ruffier, M’Vila, Khazri, Boudebouz, and Diony). All are invited to leave the club. Sainté will therefore rely on young people with defender Fofana as the headliner. The very young playmaker Aouchiche (ex PSG) came to strengthen the offensive sector with the promising striker Jean-Philippe Krasso. Author of a double during the 1st day, Hamouma remained silent on Saturday against Strasbourg, unlike Denis Bouanga who released his counter. Note that the side Gabriel Silva could still be absent for this match.

The probable compositions for Marseille vs Saint-Etienne:
OM: Mandanda – Sakhaï, Caletar-Car, Alvaro, Nagatomo – Lopez, Kamara, Rongier – Thauvin, Germain, Payet.
Saint-Etienne: Moulin – Debuchy, Fofana, Kolodziejczak, Mason – Nordin, Camara, Neyou, Bouanga – Hamouma, Aouchiche.
