One of the most improved teams in Europe this season, Marseille have had a truly terrific start to 2018. Winning seven of their first eight games in all competitions – the one game they didn’t win being a 2-2 draw with AS Monaco – they currently occupy second place in Ligue 1 and will be pulsing with confidence when they take on St Etienne in the league this weekend.

A number of key figures have helped Marseille to go some way towards fulfilling their potential. The most interesting one to highlight is Florian Thauvin. The one-time Newcastle flop has been one of the players of the season in the French top flight.
He hit a hat-trick in last weekend’s 6-3 victory over Metz at the Velodrome. With 14 goals and 10 assists in all competitions, a return to the Premier League could be on the cards in the future with clubs preparing big bids.
In St Etienne, Marseille have a tough opponent – but one that they easily brushed aside earlier in the campaign. Valere Germain has been among the goals of late and scored two against St Etienne in that aforementioned meeting.
Dimitri Payet is another attacker that the home side will have to contend with in a fixture that we can see being packed with goals.
