Saint-Etienne vs Lyon Prediction 5 February 2017

Tournament: French Ligue 1
Location: Geoffroy-Guichard Stadium
Match date: 05.02.2017 at 19:00

On February 5 2017 at 19:00 in the regular game of the 23rd matchday of the French Ligue 1 at the Geoffroy-Guichard Stadium the local Saint-Etienne play against Lyon.

After the 2/3rd of the national championship Saint-Etienne managed to achieve some positive results, in fact. They also had a few good games in the Europa League which let them make it to the play-offs of that competition. Saint-Etienne are now in really good conditions as they already have 4 games long lossless series now. In those matches Saint-Etienne drew Nancy 0:0 and Lille 1:1 and won against angers 2:1 and Toulouse 0:3.

As for Lyon, they have been known to be among the favorites of the Ligue 1 in the latest seasons. Yet, in the current one they showed really unstable performance and lost too many points to keep their positions on top. Even though they are now on the 4th place, their distance from the third position is 9 points, in fact. In the latest matches Lyon unpredictably lost points in the matches against the outsiders of the league as they lost to Lille 1:2 and Caen 3:2, outplayed Marseille 3:1, Angers 2:0 and Monaco 1:3.

The teams gained absolutely the same number of points in the latest matches played between them. We must remind you that in the first round game of the current season Lyon won 2:0 at home. We must also admit that both of the teams were kicked-off from the Coupe de France in the latest rounds of it and now they have an opportunity to accumulate energy before the final part of the national championship. Lyon are definitely very difficult competitors for Saint-Etienne as they mostly gained points at the home ground of the Saints. Yet, we think that in the upcoming game both teams will manage to score at least once.
