Saint Etienne vs Lyon: Full prediction and betting tips
Round 21 of the French Ligue 1 finishes with a very important match, The Rhone derby, featuring Saint Etienne who is 16th with 19 points, and Lyon at 3rd place with 40 points. We will check both teams’ current forms and stats and come up with our verdict at the end of this page.
St.-Etienne have themselves to blame for their recent form, as they drew four of their last home games after scoring first in all of them. Their five-match winless streak has seen them slip towards the relegation zone.
They did manage to draw against the top 2 teams though which means that they can get good results against top teams, but they have a very low goal-scoring average at home this season with just 1 goal per game.
After a 16-game unbeaten run, Lyon was shocked by a surprise home defeat against Metz in the last match. They slipped from the top of the table after losing 5 points in 2 matches and they will go all-out in this match to get that vital 3 points.
Les Lyonnais have scored over 2 goals in 10 of their last 18 matches and with an average of 1.95 goals this season, it’s their highest average for 3 seasons. They are unbeaten in 8 away games and they will hope to continue that record this Sunday
It’s a very important game for both teams thus we think they will want to score at all costs to secure all 3 points. That will make it an open game and both teams getting scoring chances.
Both teams to score 1.80 or ⅘ at William Hill
