Saint-Etienne v Guingamp
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 18th March 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard (St Etienne).
St Etienne in 11th place are safe but are probably just too far from getting a European place as they are 7 points off of the pace with six other teams battling for it. It’s no wonder that the club have somewhat ground to a halt with 3 draws in Ligue 1 in a row.
They have at least not tasted defeat since the end of January and at home they remain undefeated this year. They have lost just 3 times at home this season however because they have drawn too many games it means that they have won just 39% of their games, which is not a good record and is ultimately why they won’t qualify for European football next season.
Guingamp are in 13th place and come into this game having lost back to back matches. Their latest was a nightmare as they shipped plenty of goals in their 5-2 loss at home to Nice. It’s been 6 weeks since Guingamp last won in the league and with 35 points they are almost safe and so have little motivation to win games at this point in the season.
Guingamp have scored just 12 goals away from home all season and have lost 8 from their 14 games played. They have picked up 7 points from their last possible 15 on the road which actually is not a terrible record for the club.
