Inter Milan- Europa League

Match Date: 06 November  2014 (local time)

Venue: Geoffroy-Guichard

 

The last time that St. Etienne and Inter met, the clash ended in a scoreless stalemate. Will history repeats itself? Or will St. Etienne exploit its home court advantage to turn the odds into its favor?

 

The contenders

St. Etienne

It is quite unimaginable for St. Etienne to experience difficulty against Inter in their upcoming match. The squad is in high spirits as it secures a spot in Ligue 1’s top 5 after a narrow victory against the newly-promoted Metz.

 

Despite the erratic schedule, the club proved its ability to balance its Europa and domestic league duties. Such achievement alone speaks of the club’s discipline. And since they will be playing at home, it becomes a lot easier for them to take advantage of their opponent’s weaknesses.

 

Inter

Inter is readily aware of its opponent’s strength. St. Etienne contained them at home and there is a possibility for them to unleash an all-out thrashing should they give them a chance.

 

But in as much as St. Etienne is inspired by their current victory, the same thing is true for Inter. Back in Serie A, the squad was able to snatch a narrow win against Cesena.

 

Possible head turners

Mauro Icardi readily featured during the match against Cesena. Surely, this top-caliber player will also do everything to impress in the game against St. Etienne.

 

There is also a possibility that the match between these sports betting favorites end in an even steven finish.

 

 

Prediction

St. Etienne 1-2 Inter
