Saint-Etienne vs Bastia
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 18th September 2016
Kick Off: 16:00 BST
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard (St Etienne).
St Etienne has only lost one game so far this season but because of a succession of draws they find themselves in 12th place. The club have only scored one goal in their past two games but then again that was a superb 1-1 result away to PSG. At home they are unbeaten but in their last home match they could not score against Toulouse and the match finished 0-0. For a bottom half team they easily have the most goals so far with 6.
Bastia has been inconsistent with a loss, win, loss and win. They are actually a lot of fun to watch and just go for the game often surprising the opposition. Bastia beat Toulouse at home 2-1 in their last game but the problem is that it’s too early to say how they will be on the road. They lost 2-0 to Caen but did beat Lorient, but every club is beating the team from the West right now.
