Saint-Etienne vs Nantes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 3rd February 2021
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.
Here are two teams who are desperately looking for 3 points and it would mean the world to either side to get them. A draw would make no sense so we should see both sides go for the win.
Saint Etienne are in 16th place with 22 points and are just 4 points from the bottom three. The club picked up a huge win over Nice in their last game which has enabled them to keep afloat. Before that they had lost their last 3 games in a row.
If Saint Etienne can win here and Strasbourg lose their game they would go in front of them and further to safety but for now the club are in danger of getting sucked into the relegation zone.
Nantes are in a bigger danger and have more problems. They are 17th with 18 points and only goal difference is saving them from the bottom three.
The club have picked up just 3 points from their last 15 and look very short on confidence. They did play well at times against Monaco last weekend but lost the game 2-1.
Away form has been poor and in fact Nantes have the 2nd to worst record in the league having earned just six points from a possible 33.

Saint-Etienne vs Nantes Prediction
This will be a tense match and we do not expect to see many goals in it as a result. It is risky the choice we will make but the value is good to see no goals in this game.
A draw would not be great for both sides but that doesn’t mean they won’t take it. Plus the quality of play could be affected as both sides could well cancel out each other.
If either team take risks coming forward then we could see a winner but this match looks too close to call, and the action may center around the midfield with limited chances for both teams.
