Saint-Etienne welcomes Nantes at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard

Saint-Etienne welcomes Nantes at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard in a match from the 20th round of  the Ligue 1. We will examine this fixture in our sure win prediction today, let’s go!


For Saint-Etienne this is not the most positive season they had recently. At this moment the club is 14th in the Ligue 1 standings with 25 points, but it could be a little misleading because in the same time they are just 3 points behind the 6th Reims. In other words, few positive results could send the team on a much better position in the Ligue 1.


The big problem here is Saint-Etienne’s current shape. Les Verts lost four of their last five games, which is the reason for sinking to 14th place in the table. The manager Claude Puel is having a real headache at the moment, because it seems he can’t find a way to stop this negative performance of his team.


In the previous round Saint-Etienne visited Strasbourg, but lost with 1-2 at the Stade de la Meinau. Ryad Boudebouz scored from a penalty kick for Les Verts, but in this moment Strasbourg were already two goals ahead.


Nantes are having a very positive season, currently being 5th in the league with 29 points. They can aim even for an European qualification if they keep a good level of performance.


Just like Saint-Etienne, Nantes lost their last game in the league. Christian Gourcuff’s team hosted Angers SCO, but got outplayed and lost with 1-2. Ludovic Blas opened the score for Nantes, but the visitors turned it around in the second half.


That’s our sure win prediction today for the Ligue 1 game between Saint-Etienne and Nantes on Sunday. Both teams are approaching this match after defeats, so they will be motivated for better results. Let’s see.
