Saint-Etienne vs Toulouse
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 28th April 2019
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.
This is a massive game for Saint Etienne who have been superb this season, in large this has been down to Remy Cabella and Wahbi Khazri’s chemistry with the pair of excellent signings playing off of each other very well.
Saint Etienne claimed a brilliant 2-0 victory away to tricky Reims last weekend and the club come into this game in 4th place. They are just 3 points behind Lyon and a final Champions League place for this season and they have to simply keep winning games.
On paper this is another win but football is rarely that simple. At home the club do have the 3rd best home record in the league but some caution is needed given that they have lost 2 of their last 4 macthes here.
Toulouse drew 0-0 against Lille last weekend which ended up giving PSG the league title without even kicking a ball. Toulouse are the draw specialists and 12 of their 33 games this season have ended in that way.
Form is not good with just 1 win in six but with 36 points they will be safe this season and just need a few more draws to feel even better. Away from home their recent record is poor with just 1 point gained from their last possible 15.

Saint-Etienne vs Toulouse: Prediction
We will go with what looks obvious and believe that the home team will get all 3 points with a win. We will also back in form striker Wahbi Khazri to continue his good form and get on the score sheet.
The home side are full of ideas and we will see one team attacking and the other trying to play negative football. Toulouse’s goal of course will be to come away with another draw, which doesn’t help either side.
