Saint-Etienne hosts Nice in round 16 of French Ligue 1. The match will be played on Wednesday, December 4th at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard (Saint-Étienne)
Saint-Etienne lost to Rennes (1-2) in the last round of Ligue 1, thereby interrupting its streak, which amounted to 11 matches without defeats in all tournaments. The Greens managed to slightly improve their tournament position in the national championship, rising to ninth place. Due to the density in the standings, Claude Puel’s men are only one point behind the nearest fourth European cup position. Saint-Etienne suffered only one home defeat this season, having gained two victories and tied four times.

Nice shows similar results, but it has two more defeats. The Eaglets are located on the 12th line with 20 points scored. Patrick Vieira's team gained two victories in the last five matches, tied once and lost twice. It is worth noting that Nice has a streak of five defeats in a row in away games. This is the main problem of the Eaglets this season. After all, the team has a couple of good players in its squad, thanks to which it can compete for high places.
Saint-Etienne managed to establish its game after a terrible start. It's nice to watch football that the Greens demonstrate, especially in the home field, where they are steadily gaining points. I doubt that Nice will be able to oppose something to the hosts with such a game on the road. And the last head-to-head match held at Geoffroy-Guichard ended with the victory of Saint-Etienne with a 3-0 score. I think that the Greens have everything to rehabilitate themselves for the recent defeat in front of their fans, as well as improve their position in the standings.
Prediction for the match: Saint-Etienne to win with 0.0 handicap
