Caen vs Saint-Etienne Prediction 12 August 2017

Tournament: French Ligue 1
Location: Stade Michel d’Ornano
Match date: 12.08.2017 at 19:00

On August 12 2017 at 19:00 at the Stade Michel d’Ornano in the upcoming regular game of the second matchday of the French Ligue 1 Caen will play against Saint-Etienne.

Caen failed a lot in the previous season of their national elite division and only managed to keep their place in it due to a draw in the last match against PSG which let them avoid the place in the relegation zone. Caen were also not efficient enough in the previous season as they only scored 36 goals in their 38 matches played while they conceded 65 goals. Caen also started the current season with a loss as they were outplayed by Montpellier in the away match.

After the previous unsuccessful season the directors of Saint-Etienne made a lot of changes in the team. First of all, they replaced the manager, who didn’t manage to fulfill his task which was making it to the Europa League zone. Their new manager is the Spanish Oskar Garcia. The first match of the current season was a rather good one of Saint-Etienne, as they outplayed Nice in the first match of the French Ligue 1 last weekend.

The results of the previous games played between the teams show the advantage of Caen, in fact, as they won four times. The last game between Caen and Saint-Etienne was played on February 26 this year and Caen also won 0:1. Yet, unlike their competitors, Caen looked really poor in the first match of the national elite division and that’s why we don’t think that they will be the favorites of the upcoming game. It seems to us that the visitors will manage to avoid a loss in the forthcoming match.
