French Ligue 1
Date: Friday, 11th December 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard (Saint Etienne).
Saint Etienne and Angers will kick off round 14 for most clubs in Ligue 1 on Friday evening.
Saint Etienne continue to struggle for form after such a positive start in the new campaign and have not won a league match since mid- September. Last weekend the Verts drew 0-0 with Dijon and that means they have drawn their last two matches in a row.
The wins need to start coming for the club who are in 15th place and just two points from the bottom three.
Angers have had a more positive start and are in seventh place, they are currently 10 points ahead of their hosts.
Angers are in the much better form and have won their last 2 games, last weekend they defeated Lorient 2-0. Away from home Angers have the 4th best record in the league and have won their last 3 encounters in a row.

Saint-Etienne vs Angers Prediction
Saint Etienne has an excellent record at home to Angers but at the same time given the clubs’ form this could be set to change.
Angers are playing good football and scoring goals and Saint Etienne has a poor record at home this season with no wins in their last four and only earning 1 point from those games.
Our tip here is to back the away side who are certainly decent value and we will also back both teams to score, if Saint Etienne are going to lose again they may do so going down with a fight.
Saint-Etienne vs Angers Bet Tips:
Angers to win at 2.75 (7/4)
