To conclude the round of fixtures in the French Ligue 1, we see a highly anticipated match between St Etienne and PSG, kicking off on Sunday night at 9:00pm local time. Stade Geoffrey-Guichard is the venue for this upcoming match, as PSG will hope to get back to their best following a few under-whelming results in 2019.

Home Team: St Etienne

St Etienne are currently 5th in the league, and are pushing towards fourth spot which will be rewarded with a Europa League qualification place, where St Etienne had a good European run just a few seasons ago. St Etienne are level on points with Marseille, who they defeated 2-1 just less than a month ago. However, it has gone from bad to worse since that fixture as they club are on a four-match winless streak.

St Etienne lost to direct rivals Lyon, before drawing at struggling Nantes and then losing 3-0 to Rennes. In addition to that, they were also eliminated from the French Cup, in one of the games of the season, where they lost 6-3 at home to Dijon FCO. The defence of St Etienne seems to be leaking more goals as the season progresses, meaning more pressure is put on the shoulders of striker Wahbi Khazri – who is their top goal scorer with 12 goals.

Away Team: Paris St-Germain

PSG manager Thomas Tuchel will ultimately be judged in his Champions League performances, where they have an appetizing last 16 match against Manchester United. In their own country, PSG have been the dominant force for some time, and it’s fair to say the league has already been wrapped up. PSG were looking to break all types of records in the first half of the season, but 2019 has got off to a rather torrid start.

First of all, they have suffered key injuries to Neymar and Edison Cavani ahead of their Champions League clash, and also lost their unbeaten run in the league – losing 2-1 at Lyon. PSG were also knocked out of the French League cup, meaning that even the domestic treble cannot be achieved this season. Nonetheless, PSG are 10 points clear at the top of the league, and will look to wrap up the title as soon as possible.

Head to Head

In the last 12 meetings between the two sides, PSG have won 10, with two draws and no defeats. PSG won the reverse fixture 4-0, and have enjoyed many other big margin victories over the years including a couple of 5-0 wins, 4-1 and 3-0. St Etienne have achieved two draws in recent years, and both have come in their home matches, with last season’s fixture finishing 1-1, and also back in 2016. St Etienne haven’t beaten PSG since 2012, which was away, and haven’t won at home since 2008. Can they end the 11 year wait in front of their own fans?

Predictions and Betting Tips

bet now betting on football  St Etienne are at 4/1 to get a victory here, with PSG priced at 8/13 favourites. For the two sides to cancel each other out, that is at 16/5. It’s never wise to back against PSG, and despite this being one of their trickier tests on paper, I expect them to get a narrow result here. PSG will know that they have not won here in two of their last three meetings, so there is an extra incentive to win – so I am backing them to win 2-0 at 8/1.

  With Cavani and Neymar likely to be out, I’d expect Kylian Mbappe and Di Maria to get the goals, and for them both to score is at 7/1. It will be a cagey match, so backing against both teams to score (11/8) and there to be less than 2.5 goals (6/4) should be considered. PSG may have to wait until the second half to take the lead, so I’d back the half-time/full-time bet of St Etienne/PSG at 7/2 as my final tip.
