St. Etienne

St. Etienne capped off the first half of the season with a convincing win against Nantes, thus, securing a better spot in the French League table. Occupying the 5th spot of France’s top flight league, the club faces Evian with four (4) wins and two (2) losses under its belt.


St. Etienne’s dominance in the match is manifested in the number of clean sheets it made during its recent matches. They kept their opponents at bay in five (5) of their last seven (7) encounters. Nice, Reims, Montopellier and Nantes, to be more specific are St. Etienne’s most recent victims.


Other than the clean sheets, it must be noted that the club has also scored at least 2 goals in 5 of their last six (6) home matches. Considering the fact that they will be playing in their own territory again, the possibility of scoring at least 2 goals and getting the upper hand, is high.


Evian Thonon Gaillard

Evian’s series of unfortunate events continues after surrendering to Bastia in Coup de France. It was a humiliating loss considering the fact that they were last year’s runner-up. Back in the domestic league, Evian also experienced a heavy demolition job from Nice where they were thrashed with three (3) goals.


Evian’s need to improve their performance is evident. They have only won once in their last 6 matches and they are on the verge of entering the relegation zone. Currently, they are already occupying the 16th spot of the table. This is a major downfall knowing that they were on the 6th spot last season.


Football betting tip:  St. Etienne

Definitely, St. Etienne shall not forego of the chance to score more points and climb a step higher in the table. If they make a strong start during this year, there is a high possibility for the club to be in the top three (3).
