Two undefeated sides go head to head in France this week, as PSG welcome St Etienne to Parc des Princes on Friday night. ‘Two undefeated sides’ may not give you the entire story, as one team has laboured to three consecutive draws and the other team have blown away all that has come before them – but it’s completely factual.

Will PSG be the first team to claim a victory against St Etienne this season?

Home Team:

After losing out on the league title to Monaco two seasons ago, PSG were able to be the dominant force again in French football as they won the domestic quadruple.

They had signed Neymar and Mbappe last season, so dominating French football is the bare minimum their fans expect, and they will hope this season they will be able to win their first Champions League, and former Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel has been brought in to do just that.

This weekend it is domestic matters though, as they bid to maintain their 100% record to the start of the season. Four games, and 13 goals scored puts them in first position where many think they will stay now throughout the season. Neymar and Mbappe have both scored four goals already in the first four games of the season, but the latter will not be available due to his red card and will be serving a suspension. Will that give St Etienne a huge boost?

Away Team:

‘St Etienne are undefeated this season in their opening four matches’, if you want to look at it from a ‘glass is half-full’ perspective, although in reality they have only registered one win against the side that are currently bottom of the league – and that was a whole month ago.

After finishing in 7th position last season, they narrowly missed out on Europa League football, so their main task will be ensuring European football for next season. On the opening day of the season they defeated Guingamp, who have lost all their games this season, and that is their sole victory of the season thus far.

Since then, a battling performance with 10 men gave them a point at Strasbourg, before back to back 0-0 draws with Montpellier and Amiens has given St Etienne 6 points from their opening four games. St Etienne haven’t conceded a goal in 210 minutes, and only conceded two prior to that, meaning they will be a tough defence for even PSG’s menacing attack (despite no Mbappe) to break down.

Head to Head (H2H)

ligue 1 betting.footballPredictably, PSG have been fairly dominant in this fixture in recent seasons, whether they have been home or away, but evidence is even more damning when St Etienne are the visitors at Parc des Princes. St Etienne will refer to victories back in 2012 and 2007, but since PSG have become a real super power, St Etienne rarely lay a glove on their opponents this coming Friday. PSG have won this fixture 3-0, 4-1, 5-0, and 2-0 in four of the last five times these two clubs have met, but the other was a 1-1 draw, which St Etienne would consider a huge success if history was to repeat itself.

PSG vs St Etienne Predictions and Betting Tips

PSG are at 1/6 to win this match, with St Etienne at 14/1. For St Etienne to repeat their draw from a couple of years ago, you can get odds for that about 13/2.

The goals are certainly flowing for PSG, and despite competing against a sturdy defence without Mbappe, it will be hard to see any optimists see anything but a PSG victory here. I think that if you opt for a small margin win for PSG, which is 1-0, 2-1, or 2-0, you can get generous odds of 15/8.

If you are feeling a bit more daring, then still bet on PSG to win narrowly, but with Neymar getting the first goal. For example, Neymar to score first and PSG to win is at 11/1. If you feel that St Etienne are capable of getting their third 0-0 draw in a row, then you can get odds of 20/1 – hard to turn your nose up to that.
