Check out our Saint Etienne v Strasbourg betting tips. After a disastrous weekend for both St. Etienne and Strasbourg, the two teams clash at Geoffroy-Guichard stadium tonight. Both teams fell on hard times as of late and the stakes are pretty high. The ultimate goal for both teams is playing in the Europa League and the competitive drive is high in this match. The previous match between the two yielded a draw of 1-1, but the general opinion was that Strasbourg should have won. Both teams are in an bad state, but St. Etienne truly is struggling these days and the situation with the home boys doesn’t seem to get any better. Will Strasbourg manage to strike a victory this time around? This remains to be seen in tonight’s duel.
Saint Etienne managed to remain undefeated 20 times in their last 23 home games and it goes without saying that they stand as a really strong opponent for Strasbourg. They almost won all of their previous 6 home matches, winning 5. Taking into account that they are playing this one at home, Strasbourg is in for a tough one this time around.
Yet again, it is hard to speculate as Strasbourg scored a goal in each of their last nine matches and stand as a worthy offensive opponent to Saint Etienne. Also, they haven’t suffered a defeat in 13 out of their previous 16 matches in Ligue 1. The formidable form of Strasbourg, with the fact that St. Etienne has a lot of player absences serve as direct advantages to the Strasbourg team.
The outcome of this match should be a victory for Strasbourg and both teams have a chance to score.
Saint Etienne went through a hell of a weekend by losing 3-0 to Rennes, continuing their trend of a semi-poor away performance this season. Luckily, this one is played at home and so far and their home performance is not bad, even though they lost a match to Lyon. Their overall performance is average at best. A lot is at stake for Saint Etienne as they are trying to achieve a hard-earned place in the Europa League, and if they suffer more losses their table position will plummet even more. Saint Etienne has a string of 4 defeats and they managed to concede a whopping 12 goals in the last few weeks. With a lot of player absences and an unfortunate string of losses, things are not looking bright for the French team.
Even though it can be said that Strasbourg maintains a better form than St. Etienne, their defeat against Angers brought them back to a questionable position. They managed to reach the League Cup finals, even though they were previously eliminated from the cup; however, now things are starting to look a bit brighter for the team.
With the unfortunate 2-1 defeat by Angers, things started going back to black. Even though Strasbourg had seven clear attempts and held the majority of ball possession in that match, they still managed to lose. Before the defeat, Strasbourg maintained a successful string of 4 wins in a row, two away and two at home.
Nonetheless, Strasbourg maintains a much better form and stats than Saint Etienne, and we are most definitely backing them to be the victors for tonight’s duel!
