St-Etienne is the most honorable club of the Ligue 1 and they regularly battle in eurocups in recent seasons. The team is currently 7th with 45 points in 31 match. Christoph Galtier’s played took 5 wins, 3 draws and 8 defeats in 15 road matches this season allowing quite big number of goals as to their standards – 14-20. St-Etienne failed to win any of last three matches away, taking 2 points from these games.
The opponents met twice in their history and St-Etienne were the winner of both clashes including the reverse match this season (2-0). Both teams still have something to fight for this season even though their objectives differ. At the same time, defense is what teams are focused on and they quite successful in it so we should expect low scoring result in the matchup.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals in the match.
