Saint-Etienne Prediction

Saint-Etienne sit in 5th place in the French Ligue 1 despite two defeats in their last three matches which were losses to Lyon and Rennes along with a point against Nantes in a 1-1 draw, so the hosts will be keen to set the record straight at their Stade Geoffroy-Guichard where they still hold a decent record of 8-2-1 22/9.

The recent 2-1 loss to Lyon ended an excellent run of five straight wins against Angers, Reims, Nantes, Dijon and Marseille, but the hosts also possess a decent defensive unit which has kept five clean sheets to date as well as scoring 2 goals or more in 8 of their 11 homer matches to date this season.

Midfielder Cabella (4 goals) along with forwards Diony (5 goals) and former Sunderland striker Khazri (12 goals), who is currently enjoying his best ever goalscoring season to date, should be able to turn things around on home turf this evening.

 

Key-Facts – Saint-Etienne v Strasbourg

  • Saint-Etienne have lost just once at home in Ligue 1
  • Saint-Etienne have scored 2 goals or more in 8 of their 11 home matches
  • Strasbourg have won 3 of their last 4 away from home

 

Strasbourg Prediction

Strasbourg dropped down to 9th place in Ligue 1 following their 2-1 defeat at home to Angers on the weekend which also put an end to a promising run of four straight wins in the French top flight; wins against Nice, Toulouse, Monaco and Bordeaux had put them in with a shout of a possible European spot, but they still have a chance to rectify Saturday’s defeat here.

Away from home, Strasbourg have won three of their last four on their travels as they’ve improved their away record to a more respectable looking 4-4-3 20/14, as the visitors are enjoying their best season for some time.

The visitors are now starting to come good particularly away from home where they started the season in poor fashion, collecting just one win from their first seven matches on the road, which was a 2-0 win at Bordeaux, but Thierry Laurey’s side are starting to fear no-one in Ligue 1.

Betting Tips Verdict

Saint-Etienne have been pretty reliable at their Stade Geoffroy-Guichard ground so far this term and their goalscoring abilities have been consistently on show, while Strasbourg look like they’re finishing this season in strong fashion and have failed to score in just 2 of their 13 away matches to date. I believe we should see both teams score here.
