Saint-Etienne Prediction – Can Saint-Etienne get first home win?

Wednesday night’s hosts, Saint-Etienne, come into this basement clash in Ligue 1 against Metz on the back of an ordinary looking set of results which include failing to win any of their last 5 matches of this new French top flight season.

Although Saint-Etienne started their season off in bright fashion by recording a 2-1 win away at Dijon, the hosts have since slumped to 5 matches without a win which consisted of 3 defeats and 2 draws; the 3 defeats being losses to Lille, Marseille and Angers but all away from home.

On home turf at their Stade Geoffroy-Guichard Saint-Etienne still remain unbeaten after recording the 2 draws in their own backyard with stalemates against Brest 1-1 and Toulouse 2-2, and overall recent results at home actually haven’t been too bad.

Saint-Etienne have lost just 1 of their last 7 matches at home and within this sequence they’ve registered wins against Nimes, Bordeaux, Toulouse and Nice, as well as having a decent record at home against Metz as the hosts are unbeaten in their last 10 meetings at home against Wednesday night’s visitors.

Metz Prediction – Can Metz halt losing streak?

Metz’s Ligue 1 campaign has actually been worse than Saint-Etienne’s as the visitors have gained just 1 win so far in this new Ligue 1 season, but make their way to face Saint-Etienne on the back of 4 defeats on the trot, which has left them in the bottom three.

The visitors started the season in similar fashion to that of their hosts, Saint-Etienne, as they collected a point in a 1-1 draw away at Strasbourg and then followed that up with a 3-0 home win over struggling Monaco, but that’s where Metz’s success has ended for the time being.

The away side have since slumped to 4 defeats on the trot as the harsh reality of French top flight football has started to kick in as they’ve suffered losses to Angers, PSG, Bordeaux and Amiens, conceding a total of 9 goals in the process and scoring just 1 in reply.

Switch to results away from home and you’ll find that Metz have registered just 1 away win out of their last 13 matches on their travels in Ligue 1, so even though Saint-Etienne’s recent results have been ordinary, Metz have really struggled.


Key-Facts – Saint-Etienne v Metz

  • Saint-Etienne have lost just 1 of their last 7 matches at home in Ligue 1
  • Metz have won just 1 out of their last 13 matches on their travels in Ligue 1
