Saint-Etienne vs Nancy
French Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 21st December 2016
Kick off at 19:50 UK Time
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard, St-Etienne.
That often used word inconsistency has hampered St Etienne’s season so far, a win, a draw a loss but they are like someone trying to run in mud. Their Ligue 1 status will be safe but they aren’t able to move onto the next level and this is a summary of their league season so far. Now in 9th place they will take on 14th placed Nancy on Wednesday evening.
Nancy has really improved and now has lost just 1 game in their previous five matches. They got a good 1-1 result at tricky Toulouse and will be looking to repeat their form at another tricky ground to get points from. However their away form is still poor with just one on the road this season, and they have become the draw specialists with 3 of them in their past five away matches.
Saint-Etienne vs Nancy: Head to Head Stats
Like a lot of teams these two clashed in the Coupe de la Ligue just week at this very ground where Nancy pulled off a 1-0 victory. However in the league this fixture has been dominated by St Etienne who has won the last 3 matches in a row and has not lost to Nancy since 2005 at this ground. Home or away this match has seen plenty of goals, there has been 12 in the past three matches.
Saint-Etienne vs Nancy: Prediction
Both teams are a little erratic with form and Nancy of course don’t travel well but they will feel they can get something from this match. A draw could be on the cards, but we will instead side with the home team to just have enough quality and end Nancy’s good little run.
