Paris Saint Germain vs Saint Etienne: Prediction and Betting Tips
Paris Saint Germain searching for a home win
PSG still haven’t resolved their home form in recent matches. The Parisiens lost at home to Bayern Munich on Tuesday in the Champions League but that didn’t stop PSG from qualifying for the semi-finals of the UCL on away goals rule. Mauricio Pochetino’s team haven’t won at the Parc des Princes in five matches losing four of them.
PSG need to pick up the pace in the Ligue 1 if they want to push for the title as they are three points away from the leaders Lille. They have won four of their last six games in all competitions.
Coming into this game PSG have picked up nine points from five games. Both teams scored in three of those games and PSG scored ten times in the last ten matches in Ligue 1. Pochetino has to find solutions for their form at home as they can’t suffer any other setback at the Parc des Princes.
Can St. Etienne maintain their good away form?
Three wins in four matches have pulled St. Etienne away from the relegation zone and to safety for now. With seven matches still to be played in the league, they are nine points away from 18th placed Nimes. Les Verts need a couple of wins in the remaining matches to stay safe.
Les Verts have scored nine goals in their last five matches and they are unbeaten in their last two away games. St. Etienne have won their last two games and have scored in their last five away games. Just two of the last five games have seen both teams score in St. Etienne matches.
In their last match against Bordeaux, St. Etienne won 4-1 after a great display of counter-attack play on the Les Verts side. Bordeaux had most of the possession of the ball but St. Etienne had more goal attempts ad more shots on goal.
- PSG have not won at home in five matches in all competitions
- PSG have scored ten goals in the last five matches
- St.Etienne have won their last two away games
- St. Etienne have scored in their last five away games
Paris Saint Germain vs Saint Etienne Prediction
Fresh from their qualification to the Champions League Semi-final, avenging their loss in the final of last season against Bayern Munich, PSG will look to keep pressure on leaders Lille and either keep the three-point difference or even get level on points if Lille lose.
St Etienne are safe for now but they will be looking for a point at least in Parc de Prince. They should be encouraged by their opponent’s home form and try to play a compact defensive game and hit on the counter.
We think PSG will find their first win in five matches at home.
