Saint-Etienne vs PSG
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 15th December 2019
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.
The Ligue 1 weekend will finish when Saint Etienne take on league champions and league leaders PSG on Sunday evening.
Saint Etienne are in 8th place and there just seems to be too much inconsistency about the club. But they could move into the top six with a win here, but it would be a shock one if they could pull it off. The club lost their last game 3-1 against Reims and have just 1 win in their last 4 games.
At home the club have no defeats in over a month and in fact have lost just 1 game this season. The problem is that they don’t have amongst the best home record because they have drawn 50% of their games.
PSG are in 1st place as expected. They only have a 5 point lead over Marseille but they do have an extra game over them so in theory they could be 8 points in front. Form is very strong for the champions who have won their last 4 games in a row.
Away from home PSG have won 4 games from their past five and have won 6 altogether losing two matches. What is interesting is that the club have conceded in their last four away games.

Saint-Etienne vs PSG: Prediction
There doesn’t seem much punch to Saint Etienne at this time and when facing better quality teams we can expect them to have a tough time. PSG are in a very good moment and the chemistry between the players is now at its best this season.
PSG can put thinking about the Champions League out of their minds now until early next year and use these next two months to concentrate on pulling away in the league. The pressure is on Marseille to keep on winning and PSG still have a good points advantage.
The Parisians look like they will have plenty of the ball and cause Saint Etienne a lot of trouble. The good news for the club is that four teams in a row have scored against PSG and maybe they can penetrate their defence.
Saint-Etienne vs PSG: Bet Tips:
Both teams to score at 1.80 (4/5)
PSG to be leading at half time at 1.72 (8/11).
