Nice vs Saint-Etienne French Ligue 1 Prediction by LeagueLane

Nice vs Saint Etienne
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 31st January 2021
Kick off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Stade Allianz Riveria (Nice).

Nice surprised many as they beat Lens 1-0 last weekend, it was only Nice’s 2nd win from their last 10 games and the club are now in 12th place.

The question will be can Nice take that win and build on it after a diffcult season? If Nice win at the weekend and Montpellier lose Nice could move up one position.

Nice have only earned 5 points from their last five games and at home they have the 3rd worst home record earning just 8 points from a possible 30.

Saint Etienne are in 16th and their form seems to be getting worse, the club come into this game having lost their last 3 in a row. Last weekend loss number 10 came against Lyon at home and the game ended 5-0 to Lyon.

Saint Etienne are only 4 points from the bottom three and so the pressure really is on the verts as they are known in France to start winning games.

Nice vs Saint Etienne: Prediction

We have two teams who are low on confidence but a lot must be said for the fact that Nice won their last game and now they will be at home.

Nice looked slick and professional against Lens and yes they had to ride their luck sometimes but hopefully they will put the victory down to a new start for the club.

Saint Etienne are in very poor form and if they are to start winning again it will be more likely at home, we go for the home win.

Nice vs Saint Etienne Bet Tips:

  • Nice to beat Saint Etienne at 2.10 (11/10)
  • Correct Score: Nice to win 1-0 or 2-0 at 8.00 (7/1) and 10.00 (9/1).
