Epinal vs St Etienne Match Preview
St Etienne travel to National 2 rivals Epinal for their Coupe de France Quarter-finals clash on Thursday looking to end a three-match losing streak and earn a much-needed confidence booster with troubles in Ligue 1 – which see them sitting just four points clear of 18th placed Nimes.
Greens have seen Metz (3-1) shock them in a thrashing loss at Saint-Symphorien Stadium and they struggled to bounce despite narrow contests against Marseille (0-2) and Montpellier (1-0). They have struggled for goalscoring consistency and will have to rediscover their form if they’re to snatch a ticket to the semi-finals here.
Epinal have, on the other hand, shocked Lille (2-1) at this ground in late January as Jean-Philippe Krasso bagged a brace to complete a second-half comeback at Stade de la Colombiere. They will not play on the ground now but might enjoy the bigger capacity in hope to make this the game of the season.
Xavier Collin’s men have struggled to perform in National 2 just as much lately and saw Bobigny (0-2) snatch all three points while Reims II held on to a 1-1 draw, which denied them important points and pick-me-ups ahead of the Thursday’s clash. Still, we expect them very motivated and we hope to see them a tough nut to crack once again.
With that in mind, we’ll stick our necks out for Epinal to make the Coupe de France dream going at least into the extra-time and we’ll go for a Double Chance – Epinal to win or Draw at 7/4 with bet365, which seems like more than a lively longshot with St Etienne’s woes taken into concern.
Still, we expect no complacency and the visitors will be just as motivated to grab the chance here. With that in mind, we feel 4th tier rivals will have to cope in the final third if they’re to make it happen, backing a Yes on Both teams to score at Evens with William Hill.
