The last meeting between these teams was in July this year, a club friendly fixture that ended 2-1 in favour of Marseille.
Goals on both sides

Match Preview: Marseille on a Vengeance Mission
Marseille hope they can build on their good start this season to exact revenge on Saint-Etienne. The hosts played against Etienne in an international friendly exactly one month ago on 28th July and won 2-1. The question is can they get another victory over St. Etienne on matchday? Notably, Marseille failed to defeat Etienne last season hence gave away all six points to the visitors. A 2-0 defeat at home and a 1-0 loss on the road meant Marseille conceded three goals to the visitors last season. In the last three meetings, Marseille has conceded four goals to St. Etienne and only netted twice against the visitors in as many games. They bagged two clean sheet victories against the visitors in the 2019/2020 season, a record that looks plausible given the current form of the hosts. It is all about fixing a few issues in the defence if Marseille wants to get a win in this fixture. On the flipside, Saint-Etienne has bagged three draws in the first three matches. The visitors conceded two goals in their first away match, a performance that shows how vulnerable they are in this fixture.
