Saint-Etienne vs Lille
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 29th November 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.
The last game to wrap up the weekend matches in Ligue 1 will see Saint-Etienne take on Lille.
Saint-Etienne are in 16th place and have been in the poorest form in the league having earned zero points from their last 15 available. The club are in desperate need for a win but on paper at least face very tough competition from Lille.
At home Saint-Etienne have played five games and won two of those but they have lost their last 3 in a row here. Their last home game ended in a 1-0 defeat against Montpellier.
Lille are having a great season and are in 2nd place with 22 points. They recorded a fantastic victory last weekend beating Lorient 4-0, and that was perhaps an important result for the club.
Important because recent form could be better and before that game they had gone 3 matches without a win and looked like they would be dropping down a few places.
But perhaps with PSG losing last weekend it reignited the fire in the belly of the players and Lille has the opportunity to keep that pressure on the champions with a win here.

- The last time the clubs met at this stadium the match finished 1-0 to Lille.

Saint-Etienne vs Lille: Prediction
Saint-Etienne are the outsiders for this match and when one looks at the recent form it is easy to see why. However we think they could spring a surprise.
Minimum stakes are required because everyone knows of the qualities of Lille but their recent form has not been good.
Saint-Etienne have been training hard in the past week and have concentrated on defence and being a little less afraid to attack. We must remember how well the side started this season, and at one point they will need to find that form again- if it is going to happen we can think it will being at home.
