Betting tips – St Etienne vs Lyon – 05.02.2017
Saint Etienne and Olympique Lyon fight for the fourth spot this campaign and this duel could be a final. The kick is set at 20:00, UK Time.
Saint Etienne are undefeated in the last four league matches, ticking two draws and two victories. The home team is currently on the 5th position and this seems to be their last train in the Top 4 race. They have 33 points in their account, four less than Lyon, so a victory is needed here. Saint Etienne have a good home record, with five wins, five draws and one loss.
Saint Etienne probable lineup (4-3-3): Moulin – Malcuit, Catherine, Perrin, Pogba – Veretout, Selnaes, Lemoine – Hamouma, Roux, Paquet.
Olympique Lyon are not in their form, coming here after two defeats in the last three rounds. The visitors would be happy with a draw in our opinion, but a victory could be a big step forward in the Top 4 race. N’Koulou is still not available, being with his national team, while Diakhaby is injured. OL have lost the previous two trips at this stadium, 0-3 and 0-1.
Prediction: Under 3,5 goals @ 1.35
We expect a tight game here, with maximum three goals produced by this duel. OL have a good attack, but on the other hand they would be happy with a draw, as we said. Both sides have strong defenses.
