Saint Etienne vs PSG
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 6th January 2021
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.
Saint Etienne will be big outsiders to win their first match of the new year when they take on the champions PSG.
The home side are in 14th place but have recovered some what their form as they have gone their last five games unbeaten with 1 win and 4 draws. Their last result finished in a 2-2 draw away to Monaco which was impressive.
Saint Etienne are six points clear of the bottom three and four points behind 13th place so they need to patch some wins together to feel safe, this may not begin in midweek with such a hard task in front of them.
It’s all change at PSG and after almost 3 years Thomas Tuchel is no more. The German coach was sacked by the champions just before Christmas as PSG entered the new year in 3rd place and that simply wasn’t deemed to be good enough. Some may believe it was harsh given that PSG are only 1 point behind the leaders Lyon.
PSG’s new coach is Mauricio Pochettino who did so well at Tottenham and took the Premier League club to the Champions League final 18 months ago. It will be very interesting to see what he can do with his new club.
PSG have earned 10 points from their last 15 but have had some slip ups, a draw at Lille and they recently lost to Monaco but another league title is well within their grasp.

Saint-Etienne vs PSG Prediction
Of course PSG will be the odds on favourites and they are 1.30 to win which offers us little value. This is a big game to tune into being Pochettino’s first in charge and we have the feeling that the PSG players will want to say this is what we are about, and put on a good display.
Saint Etienne are there for the taking and not only do we expect a PSG victory but for the away side to score a few goals and this is the market we need to be concentrating on as PSG depending on other results aim to return back on top before the weekend.
