Sochaux vs Saint-Etienne
France – Coupe de France
Date: Thursday, 11 February 2021
Kick-off at 17:45 UK/ 18:45 CET
Venue: Stade Auguste Bonal.
The Yellows and Blues are from the French second division, and are currently struggling to hold a spot in the mid-table.
They have also been on a dismal run lately, and have been conceding goals in high frequency.
Especially at home, the team has been finding it hard to deliver credible performances at least once in a while.
In the meantime, Les Verts are from the French top flight – one of the top five leagues in Europe, and there they have been on an impressive run lately.
In fact, barring some tough fixtures, the team has stayed unbeaten in the past three-month period. The gaffer as well as the players certainly will try to carry forward this momentum, and progress to the next round.
Moreover, Claude Puel’s men also have a good h2h record against this rival over the years.
By the looks of things, expect Saint-Etienne to emerge victorious this Thursday.
Sochaux vs Saint-Etienne: Head-to-head (h2h)

- They had recorded six of the former nine overall wins.
- They had scored two or more goals in three of the past four encounters.

Sochaux vs Saint-Etienne Prediction
Omar Daf’s men are from the second division. They were also winless in five of their previous seven overall games, and remained so in seven of their preceding nine appearances at home.

Likely, expect Saint-Etienne to deliver a winning performance this Thursday at the Stade Auguste Bonal.
