Nantes vs Saint-Etienne
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 20th September 2020
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Beaujoire (Nantes)

Nantes come into this game on Sunday in 13th place they lost their last game which ended 2-1 to Monaco. So far they have only played one home game this season which ended in victory when they beat Nimes 2-1, but the club have not really been tested at home so far, that is about to change this weekend.

For now Nantes look like they might perform pretty much how they did last season, a team who win the odd game, but give no threat to the top teams, sadly this will not be good for the club who don’t look like they have been able to progress much in the summer. Still it is early days and if they were to win this game the headlines would change about them.

Saint Etienne are, for now, the best team in Ligue 1. They have won their opening 3 games in a row and have 9 points and are six points clear of the champions PSG. They have also scored six goals and have not conceded a goal. It has been the perfect start for the Verts!

They have really impressed too, by going to the Stade Velodrome and beating Marseille 2-0 and the club have really made a statement. Indeed every match they have played so far has ended in the correct score of 2-0.

Nantes vs Saint-Etienne Prediction

Nantes are rarely easy to play and they will give the visitors a few scares and a hard game. But Saint Etienne come here on a high, it won’t be easy for them but we think they can get through this game.

The other advantage they have is that they have a very good record coming here and Nantes performances have not been good against them. We will back Saint Etienne to win and also let’s look out for Romain Hamouma who has ben scoring the goals and is in very good form.
