Saint-Etienne vs Amiens
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 27 October 2019
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard (Saint-Étienne).
Claude Puel’s men will certainly try to make the most of their three-game winning run in the league. The momentum they have built, plus the home advantage for the day, coupled with the superiority they boast in h2h clashes should help them see through this challenge.
However, they will need to tread carefully, as the Unicorns have a tendency to concentrate more on offense, even if their defense suffers. This certainly could create problems at the back for the hosts.

Saint-Etienne vs Amiens Prediction
The Saints seem to be on the rise after their three consecutive wins in the competition. While they have had their share of problems at the start of the campaign, the players are eager to make up for lost time, and this mentality has urged them to go after superior performances.
As of now, they are on a streak of five unbeaten ties in overall and lost just once in their last six appearances in front of the home crowd.
On the contrary, their opposite number has three wins to their name in the previous thirteen games and just two from the last nine on the road. Recent h2h games too paint such a picture, where the Saints have the upper hand.
Taking these observations into account, a home win looks the likely outcome as these two take the pitch this Sunday.
