Saint-Etienne vs Lyon
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 20th January 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard (Saint Etienne).

Saint Etienne got a great victory over Marseille in their last game winning it 2-1 to keep up their chances of finishing in a European spot. The team have had an excellent season and have moved up to 3rd place as a result.

The club are in great form and have won their last 3 matches in a row and are unbeaten since the beginning of December. This game should be a fantastic spectacle given that Lyon are in 4th place and would go above Saint Etienne with a win.

Saint Etienne have a fantastic record at home where they are unbeaten and have won 26 points from the 30 available.

Lyon come into this game unbeaten in their last 4 matches although we have to note that their last 3 games have all ended in draws. Lyon have only lost 2 games away all season and are unbeaten away from home in over 3 months. The club have been solid this season but have dropped too many points due to draws and are 16 points behind league leaders PSG.

Saint-Etienne vs Lyon: Head to Head

  • In the reverse fixture earlier this season Lyon won 1-0.
  • Saint Etienne have not beaten Lyon for the last 3 meetings.
  • The last time Lyon played Saint Etienne here they won 5-0.

Saint-Etienne vs Lyon: Prediction

Saint Etienne have been magnificent this season and even though Lyon have had a hold on them in the past we believe that the home side can triumph here.

Lyon have been solid but have not had that killer instinct like in previous seasons. Meantime, we must respect Etienne’s home form this season and their recent form and not think about history here, so our main tip is to see a home win. They are a dynamic attacking side and have the quality and motivation to win this game.
