St Etienne vs Nice Match Preview
St Etienne failed to build on a solid streak seen ahead of the International break and they now host Nice with a three-match winless streak behind them, desperate to bounce and climb the table with a top 3 spot still well within the reach as they sit just two points behind 3rd placed Angers.
Les Verts have been held off by Gent (0-0) last week and lost their chances to make the top 2 cut in Group I early. They failed to recuperate and saw a 2-1 loss at Rennes despite taking an early lead through Lois Diony at Roazhon Park, where they conceded a last-gasp winner on Sunday afternoon.
Nice will hope to capitalize on such a streak on the rivals’ end and build on a 3-1 win over Angers earned on Saturday, where Arnaud Lusamba, Myziane Maolida, and Kasper Dolberg made it on the scoresheet to complete a comeback in front of the home fans. They have struggled to impress on the road, though, and this will be far more worrying ahead of the trip to Saint-Etienne.
Indeed, Les Aiglons saw six consecutive losses on the road since mid-September, beaten by Montpellier (2-1), Monaco (3-1), Nantes (1-0), Strasbourg (1-0), Le Mans (3-2), and Lyon (2-1). They have been scoring more goals lately and we feel Patrick Vieira’s men will be very motivated to finally end the unwanted streak.
We don’t feel they’ll be able to snatch all three points and show off as they did over the weekend but we do hope to see them capitalize on the rivals’ woes. We’ll thus stick our necks out for the sides to share the spoils in a Draw priced at 23/10 with Paddy Power.
Still, we should be in for a very narrow occasion which could be decided by slim margins. We thus hope to see few goals and we’re now also backing Under 2.5 Goals FT at 3/4 with VirginBet, which has been rated a solid approach by many in the know as well.
