St Etienne Preview – Pressure on Puel increasing with every outing?

Les Verts (W3 D3 L7) enjoyed a brief spell atop Ligue 1 back in September, after their 2-0 win away in Marseille made it three wins in as many games as Claude Puel’s side made a rapid start to the new league campaign. That was as good as it got, though, with this team now without a win in ten subsequent matches (D3 L7) to plummet from potential dark horses for Europe to bona fide relegation candidates.

Last Sunday’s goalless draw away to bottom side Dijon the latest in a long line of disappointing outcomes for St Etienne, who would at least build on the momentum garnered from having held second-placed Lille to a 1-1 draw here at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard in their preceding fixture. That contest seeing one of just five goals scored across their previous nine Ligue 1 games.

St Etienne have now drawn a blank in five of the last nine league games, including two of the four held on home soil (D1 L3). They last netted more than once, meanwhile, in a 2-2 draw in Nantes on Matchday 4. None of this is surprising when looking at their underwhelming underlying numbers. Les Verts are averaging a paltry 1xG across 2020/21, failing to surpass even that figure in seven of the last nine encounters.


Angers Win & Both Teams to Score



Angers Preview – Les Noirs et Blances primed to extend away run?

It is rarely dull when Stephane Moulin and his Angers (W7 D1 L5) outfit have taken to the pitch in Ligue 1 in 2020/21. Their thirteen league games thus far returning a healthy dosage of goals, more than three per game on average, and more often than not it is both sides contributing, as has been the case in 54% of matches that have been completed so far. That figure rising to 83% when playing away from home.

So, with Les Noirs et Blancs back out on the road once again, those tuning in on Friday for the live offering from BT Sport could be in for an early festive treat. Which is precisely how Angers are entitled to view this fixture, against a host enduring a wretched time of it at present, but were instead preaching for calm and humility in the aftermath of last Sunday’s dominant 2-0 win at home against Lorient.

Angers are now enjoying the dizzying heights of seventh in the Ligue 1 standings, perched a point behind the European spots and, perhaps more importantly as far as their manager is concerned, a full 12 points clear of the relegation places. That a third win in four; a 1-0 loss at home to Lyon splitting high-scoring victories away to Lens and Nimes as part of their current three-match winning sequence on the road.

St Etienne Vs Angers Betting Advice

Even in the early stages of the season, when everything was going right for St Etienne, they appeared over-reliant on individual performances. Romain Hamouma and Denis Bouanga begun the campaign inspired and accounted for five of the team’s first six goals. Neither has found the net in the last ten games, in which time Les Verts have remained winless in Ligue 1, collecting just three of the last 30 points on offer.


St Etienne Vs Angers – Key Facts:

  • Ten Ligue 1 games without registering a single win for St Etienne, who have mustered a measly five goals across the last nine of those encounters.
  • Three wins from the last four Ligue 1 fixtures (L1) for Angers, who are seeking their fourth straight away win despite failing to shutout any of their previous three hosts.
  • Victory away to St Etienne has proven elusive so far for Angers, who are without a win at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard in all five prior Ligue 1 visits (D1 L4).


Whereas these are dispiriting times for their opponents, Angers arrive at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard – where they have never managed a Ligue 1 victory before in five attempts (D1 L4) – in terrific form and brimming with confidence on the back of three wins in their last four games. The visitors excelling of late on their travels especially, winning each of the last three against Lens, Nimes and Rennes.
