Lille vs Saint-Etienne
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 6th October 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy (Lille).
Lille have been really impressive so far this season and they will want to continue their fine form when they take on Saint Etienne at home this weekend. Lille are in 2nd place in Ligue 1 and even though they are already 8 points adrift of leaders PSG their goal will be to stay in the top places.
Last weekend Lille got a superb result at home by beating Marseille 3-0 which proves beyond doubt how strong they are in front of their home fans. Alongside PSG, Lille have the best home record in the league with 4 wins from 4 games.
Saint Etienne are in good form coming into this game and have won their last 3 matches in a row. They are 4th in the league and if they win this game they would go above Lille.
Last weekend they made light work of Monaco and won the game 2-0. Away from home has been more of a struggle for the club though but they did win their last game on the road when they overcame Toulouse 3-2. Otherwise from 4 games they have won just one of them.
Lille vs Saint-Etienne: Head to Head

Lille vs Saint-Etienne: Prediction
Our bet here is to see both teams to find the net and we will also concentrate on the goal scorers market which will offer us a lot of value in this match.
Lille have a fantastic record at home to Saint Etienne but many of these results have ended in draws and we must remember how well Saint Etienne have been playing in recent weeks, this is why this should be a close game. If anything we will see a very entertaining match with lots of chances for both teams.
