Saint-Etienne vs Lille
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 10th March 2019
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.
A really big game will take place on Sunday afternoon when Saint Etienne in 5th place and Lille in 2nd.
11 points separates the teams coming into this game but there is a lot on the line for both teams. Saint Etienne has the chance to break into the top 4 and can mount a chase after Lyon, but if they lose this game and Lyon win that challenge could die this weekend.
The club have not been consistent enough lately and have dropped too many points away from home. At home they have lost just 2 games all season but the bad news is that 2 of the last 3 have been those defeats. The club needs to get back on track.
Lille are 5 points clear of 3rd and will want to maintain that to automatically qualify for next seasons Champions League. The club are unbeaten in their last 5 games and have won 11 points from their last 15 available. Their last game ended in a 1-0 win over Dijon. On the road they drew their last game 1-1 against Strasbourg but they do have the 2nd best record in the league and have won 7 of their 13 games,

Saint-Etienne vs Lille: Prediction
This will be a very interesting game where we expect it to start slow like a game of chess and explode in the second half. Our bet here will be to see both teams share the spoils and get a point each. Lille might be favourites to win this game, but they are coming up against a strong opponent. For smaller stakes we will back the correct score which always give us very good value.
