Lyon vs Saint-Etienne French Ligue 1 Prediction by LeagueLane

Lyon vs Saint-Etienne
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 8th November 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Groupama Stadium (Lyon).

The big game to close out another weekend in France will be between Lyon and Saint Etienne.

Lyon have no defeats in their last 5 games which is good but the club have drawn three of them and as a result are just off of the current pace being held by PSG and Lille.

Lyon has 14 points and they could go 10 points behind PSG if they don’t win this match- 10 points is a huge difference already with 10 games played and the club will certainly be looking to win this game.

Last weekend Lyon showed their qualities by drawing 1-1 away to 2nd placed Lille and their last home game finished in a fantastic 4-1 win over Monaco, a potential top 4 rival.

Saint Etienne started the season well but what a nightmare period they are now going through. They have fallen to 13th place and lost 5 straight games in a row. Their latest loss came at home against Montpellier and their last away game ended in a 2-0 defeat at Metz.

Lyon vs Saint-Etienne Head to Head

  • Last season Lyon won this fixture 2-0.
  • Saint Etienne have not won at Lyon since 2014.
  • There is a 70% chance to see under 2.5 goals.

Lyon vs Saint-Etienne Prediction

Saint Etienne have really struggled to win this fixture in recent years and together with their poor form we only see one winner here.

However Lyon are around the 1.30 mark to win so instead we will back them to win at half time and full time. This is a market that will offer us very good value.

We will also back Karl Toko Ekambi to score anytime. The player has been in good form and has all the chances to add to his tally and is a decent price.

Lyon vs Saint-Etienne Bet Tips:

  • Half Time/Full Time: Lyon/Lyon 2.00 (1/1)
  • Anytime goalscorer: Karl Toko Ekambi of Lyon at 2.50 (6/4).
