Saint-Etienne vs Caen
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 22nd September 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard (St Etienne).
St Etienne have started poor even if they only have 1 loss so far that is because they have already drawn 3 games and dropped points. This has left them in 14th place and already 9 points behind league leaders PSG.
Talking about PSG this was St Etienne’s last loss which ended 4-0 in Paris but this result should not affect the team too much as they look forward to returning home for this showdown. At home they remain unbeaten.
Caen have the same form as their hosts with 3 draws, 1 win and 1 loss and so perhaps both teams may cancel out each other and there could be limited attacks.
Caen have gone their last four games undefeated and drew 2-2 last weekend at home to Lyon but they finished the game with 9 men after Djiku and Sankoh both saw red and they will both miss this game as a result. Away from home they have gone the last two games undefeated and in their last game they beat Dijon 2-0.
Saint-Etienne vs Caen: Head to Head
Last season St Etienne won this game 2-1.
Caen have a decent record here winning 2 of the last 3 games.
4 of the last 5 games have had more goals occurring in the 2nd half.
5 of the last 8 meetings have ended with the correct score of 1-0.
Saint-Etienne vs Caen: Prediction
There isn’t much between these two teams and we will pick out three choices. The first is to see the draw at half time because this is could be a quiet game. The second is to see the game open up, mistakes to happen and to see a goal in the second half.
We will also back Wahbi Khazri to score anytime for the home team, he can be a real handful when he is up for the game and hopefully he will be at home.
