Lyon vs Saint-Etienne: 1st March 2020, Sunday
French Ligue 1
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Groupama Stadium.
Last weekend Lyon beat Metz 2-0 and that was an impressive result away form home where Lyon have struggled this season. That win means the club are now in 7th place with 37 points.
Lyon have been drawing too many games lately and simply have not been consistent enough this season, they have though lost just 1 game from their last four. They have also gone their last two games unbeaten after drawing against Strasbourg recently.
At home they have won just 35% of their games which has been a major problem however they have gone their last 3 games undefeated at home and will want to continue that in this game.
Saint Etienne have dropped to 15th place and have earned just 1 point from their last available 15 on offer.
A 4 game losing streak was stopped last weekend as the club drew 1-1 at home against Reims. There is the danger that the club could be sucked into a relegation battle though as they are just two points clear of the bottom three.
Away from home Saint Etienne have lost 9 games from 13 which includes their last five in a row.

Lyon vs Saint-Etienne: Prediction
Lyon were tipped to at least finish in the runners up spot behind PSG at the beginning of the season, but it has been a testing time for the club.
They won’t be able to finish 2nd now as they are 18 points behind Marseille however it is all about Champions League football for the club and if they can finish in 3rd place they would qualify for the qualifiers of the competition, and they do have a realistic chance of doing that.
Lyon are odds on but are not too short not to back and we will back them to win this game and score a couple of goals too as they will need too to get the win.
