Where: Stade Vélodrome - Marseille
Referee:‬ S. Ennjimi‎ 
Marseille have 3-2-1 so far and are as expected in the top just below Monaco and PSG. They are not in very good form as they have 0-2-2 in last four matches. But they have met good opposition in the two matches they lost, they lost 2-1 at home to Monaco and then 2-1 at home to Arsenal in the Champions League. Last match ended 0-0 away to Bastia, and the fans are surely expecting better results in future matches. Saint Etienne are 4-0-2 and a third place is better than expected before the season started, though they have mainly met teams that are currently in bottom half of the table. They are 2-0-1 away so far this season, last weekend they lost 2-1 away to Toulouse. 
The teams have met many times before, and Marseille have the upper hand with 12-6-7. At home Marseille have not lost to Saint Etienne and it is 9-3-0. For Marseille the forward Gignac is out (he has featured in all six league matches plus against Arsenal), but attacking midfielder Payet should be back again. Saint Etienne will be without the forward and previous Marseille player Brandao, plus defender Perrin (he played in five of the matches) is also absent.
