Strasbourg vs Saint-Etienne
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 17th January 2021
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Meinau (Strasbourg).
Strasbourg are six points clear of the bottom three but are far from out of the woods and a win at the weekend would be very welcome.
The omens may point to victory because Strasbourg are in form and have won their last 2 games in a row. The club have beaten Nimes and Lens and in those two games scored six goals without conceding.
This is a good moment for Strasbourg but they will want to improve their home record where they have won just twice at home although they did win their last game here.
Saint Etienne are in 16th and a place below their hosts and also just 1 point so they could go above them. But form is poor and they come into this fixture with no wins in their last four games.
Their last game ended in a 3-1 loss at Reims and it has been a month since Saint Etienne have won a game.
On the road Saint Etienne have lost 50% of their games but their recent defeat at Reims is their only one away from home in their last 4 games.
Strasbourg vs Saint-Etienne: Head to Head
- Last season Strasbourg won this match 2-1.

Strasbourg vs Saint-Etienne: Prediction
From all the games this weekend in Ligue 1 this is one that feels like a home victory. Saint Etienne have had many problems after a good start to their campaign and they continue to do so.
Saint Etienne have recorded some good results over Strasbourg lately but it has normally been when they are the home side, and this will be a difficult fixture for them.
This is a meeting where Strasbourg come into it with a good confidence to get all three points and we see only one winner here and the added bonus is that Strasbourg are good value too.
