Saint Etienne- Week 18

Nice vs. Saint Etienne

 

Match Date: 14 December 2014 (local time)

Venue: Allianz Riviera

 

Nice

Nice has finally ended its 5-match losing streak when it snatched a narrow win against the newly-promoted Caen.

 

In the said match, Nice nailed three (3) winning goals, whilst a resilient Caen was able to pull off two (2) goals. It can be fairly described that the match between the two wasn’t easy.

 

Saint Etienne

Saint Etienne’s winning streak continues with its narrow win over Bastia. The club sits comfortably on the 4th spot of the league table and has yet to experience defeat.

 

Prediction

Nice 1-3 Saint Etienne

Lille vs. Toulouse

 

Match Date: 14 December 2014 (local time)

Venue: Grand Stade Lille Metropoles

 

Lille

It was quite unlikely for Lille to settle for a stalemate to a newly-promoted Lens. Considering the gap in experience, the match should have been a lot easier. But the supposedly online betting favorite was unable to hold on to its lead until Lens scored a late equalizer.

 

Lille remains winless during its last six (6) matches and is just three (3) points clear of the relegation zone.

 

Toulouse

Just when Toulouse thought that it will finally get away with its inconsistent performance, the encounter against AS Monaco, yielded another bout of disappointment. Needless to say, the club experienced a 2-0 loss, which forced them out of the league table’s top 10. Going against Lille, the match will not be an easy one. There’s a strong possibility for the clash to end up in an even steven finish.

 

 

Prediction

Lille  1-1 Toulouse
