Saint Etienne are only seven points from the drop but their recent form is what matters most and the club have won their last 2 games in a row.
Last weekend the Verts beat Rennes away from home in an impressive 2-0 victory and in fact the club have gone their last 4 games undefeated. It is clear that they are on mission.
It is possible with a win that Saint Etienne can start to see daylight between them and the bottom three and could also move up 2-3 places depending on other results.
