Saint-Etienne vs Nice
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 4th December 2019
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.
Saint Etienne have fallen to 9th after they drew against Montpellier and then lost to Rennes at the weekend, so they will need this game to bounce back.
Whilst Saint Etienne have actually only lost 1 game at home their problem has been that they have drawn 4 of their seven games which has left their season a little lopsided.
The club could still make a claim for the top 5 if they get a good win in this match, such is how close the league is, but this doesn’t look like a strong period for the club.
Nice are in 12th place and are two points behind their hosts so they have the chance to overtake them. They have won 7 points from their last 15 but the consistency just isn’t there with the club this season.
Nice have lost 5 games away from home- and here is the telling part because they have lost their last five in a row on the road. They have conceded 9 goals in those defeats with their last away defeat coming at the hands of Lyon.
Last weekend, Nice ended in a very good win 3-1 against high flying Angers.
Saint-Etienne vs Nice: Head to Head
- Last season Saint Etienne ran out easy 3-0 winners.
- Nice have not won at this ground since 2016.
- 6 of the last 7 meetings home or away has ended in under 2.5 goals.
Saint-Etienne vs Nice: Prediction
We think the home side can get a solid win here. Nice simply have not convinced this season.
If you win one week, then draw, then lose and rinse and repeat there is the very good chance to finish in the bottom half of the table and we shouldn’t be following Nice too closely until they can find a winning run.
Saint Etienne are a good side that have had a little blip and we think Nice are the good opponents for them at home to start winning games again.
Back Robert Beric to grab a goal for the home side, he is great value at any time and is due to have more strikes on the goal.
Saint-Etienne vs Nice: Bet Tips:
