Lille vs Saint Etienne: Prediction and Betting Tips

19:00, May 16 2021
Lille vs Saint Etienne prediction for Sunday’s round 37 of the French Ligue 1 clash at Stade Pierre-Mauroy in Villeneuve d’Ascq.  Ligue 1 leaders Lille entertain 11th placed St. Etienne in a very important match for Lille. Read along for our free prediction and betting tips.

Ligue 1 title closer than ever for Lille

Lille need four points from their final two matches to win the Ligue 1 title for the first time since 2011. It has been an exceptional season for Lille and surely they won’t forego this chance as they play St. Etienne for a win, something they have done three times in their last four matches. Picking up 13 points from their last five matches, Lille have shown champion level in recent games and are hungry for this accomplishment.

Christoph Galtier will be happy with his defense as they were the main reasons for their success this season. Lille have a league-high clean-sheet percentage of 55%. Les Dogues have conceded the least goals in Ligue 1 with 22 goals and have lost just three matches all season. Galtier’s team have struggled at home winning just two of their last six home matches. The encouraging stat is that Lille haven’t conceded after the break their last 11 matches.

Saint Etienne on a good away form

15 defeats in 36 matches have seen St. Etienne collect their worst tally of points in Ligue 1 since the 2009/10 season. Claude Puel will be content with his team’s recent form, however. Les Verts have won five of their last eight matches and that has secured them an 18th consecutive top-flight season next term.

St. Etienne have won five of their last seven road trips, scoring first in six of those matches and winning four times when they opened the scoring. Four of the wins on the road in their last seven games have come with clean sheets as Claude Puel’s team have conceded less than a goal a game across their last seven away games.

Key Stats

  • Two or more goals have been scored in Lille’s last five games
  • Two or more goals have been scored in St. Etienne’s last six of seven matches
  • Lille have won five of their last six games with two or more goals being scored in four of them
  • There is a 55% chance of ending this match in under 2.5 goals
  • Three clean sheets have been the outcome of Lille’s last five matches
  • St. Etienne had two clean sheets in their last three matches

Lille vs Saint Etienne Prediction

Les Dogues will go all out to win this match as they get closer to lifting the long-awaited Ligue 1 trophy. Lille have been in great form throughout the season and we think they are capable of winning this one against a St. Etienne side without any incentives in their remaining matches.

Looking at the stats and recent form of Lille, we will back a Lille win with two or more goals in the match.

For our secondary prediction, and again considering the stats of both teams, we will back under 2.5 total match goals.
