St Etienne – Nantes : Preview & Prediction
AS St Etienne, who has faced many absences in recent weeks, is slowly recovering his world and should once again post better results. Currently 14th in Ligue 1, the Forézien club hopes to end its streak of 3 league defeats in Reims (3-1), against PSG (0-4) and in Strasbourg (2-1). Strangled this Wednesday in Paris (6-1) in the Coupe de la Ligue, Sainté is still racing in the Coupe de France where the Ligue 1 resident won at Bastia-Borgo (3-0) on January 5. A championship victory would allow Ruffier’s partners to set in motion a positive dynamic. FC Nantes, 5th, is close to European places but these latest results are mixed with 1 short victory at Bayonne (2-0) in the Coupe de France last Saturday and 2 defeats against Strasbourg (0-1) in the Coupe de la Ligue and against Angers (1-2) in the league. Defeated 6 times in the last 10 days, Nantes could record another defeat in the Cauldron.
Nantes has not won St Etienne since January 10, 2016.
ASSE has won 3 of its last 4 duels against FCN.
The Greens had won 3 goals to 2 at Beaujoire in the first leg.
The Canaries have lost 2 of their last 3 games.
ASSE has lost only once in the Cauldron during its last 9 receptions.
St Etienne needs this victory to regain his ambitions and the first part of the table.
