Saint-Étienne vs Lorient: Predictions and Betting Tips
Saint-Étienne finished the previous season in eleventh position, a fair reflection of the talent in their squad. A similar position is expected this season, as they have not had any major signings this season that might strengthen their squad.
Étienne’s last three pre-season matches have not left them feeling confident, as they have ended in defeats against Eintracht Frankfurt, Marseille, and Clermont.
Lorient finished last season in sixteenth position, only narrowly avoiding playing in the relegation playoffs.
Lorient were the worst away team in Ligue 1, as in 19 matches they managed just one win, and 11 defeats.
Lorient’s pre-season friendlies have been positive, with three wins and two draws against teams of a similar level.
- One win, one draw, and three defeats for Saint-Étienne in their last five games (Pre-season)
- Saint-Étienne have conceded at least one goal in all of their last five games (Pre-season)
- Three wins and two draws for Lorient in their last five games (Pre-season)
- Lorient have only conceded three goals in their last five games (Pre-season)
Saint-Étienne vs Lorient Predictions
This is a match between two teams that were in the bottom half of the table last season. Saint-Étienne are slight favourites, as the general quality of their squad is slightly higher than Lorient’s, plus Saint-Étienne have the home advantage. Therefore, we think that Étienne could win this match but not by much.
