Saint Etienne vs Nantes: Prediction and Betting Tips
— AS Saint-Étienne (@ASSEofficiel) December 20, 2021
Saint Etienne desperately chasing a win
A Coupe de France win over fourth division outfit Lyon Duchere may not be enough to give Saint Etienne the needed morale. Surely, morale is what’s needed by Les Verts as the ten-time Ligue 1 champions find themselves in an undesired position by all French football fans. To illustrate St. Etienne are bottom of the table with 12 points from 18 matches. Certainly, Les Verts’ case is not hopeless but they need to react quickly.
Obviously, Saint Etienne’s main problem is the lack of a clear scorer. Evidently, their last seven League goals were scored by different players. However, coach pascal Dupraz may want to get busy in the January transfer window to solve that problem. In the meantime, a second home win of the season will be more than welcome to end the year on a high note.
Nantes’ must not be too relaxed
Nantes look very relaxed at the tenth position after the drama of going through a relegation playoff last season. In fact, the Canaries improved immensely from last season and already collected nine more points than they did at this stage last season. With two wins in a row coming into this match, a third one could see climb further up the table.
To clarify, the difference between Nantes and fifth-placed Montpellier is three points. Hence a win here and some other results in Nantes’ favor will surely see them move up. However, the Canaries registered their second away win in their last trip to Lorient. Also, that was boss Kombouare’s first clean sheet on the road. Consequently, it won’t be an easy ride in Geoffrey-Guichard for the Canaries.
Saint Etienne vs Nantes Prediction
This is a must-win game for St. Etienne. Otherwise, they might find themselves in very deep trouble if their competitors manage to earn points. Looking at their results, Les Verts did manage to draw against top ten teams like Lyon and Lens. But that may not be enough at this stage of the season.
As for Nantes, they are looking for their first hattrick of wins of the season. However, they need to improve their away performances as they won just two of their last ten road trips. Moreover, the Canaries have just two clean sheets in those matches, which were in their last two.
The odds for a win are divided almost equally between the two teams, 2.64 for St.Etienne and 2.79 for Nantes. As a result, we prefer to choose a double chance outcome combined with the total goals And since the odds are quite high for such bets, we will choose the over 1.5 and under 4.5 for our two predictions.
