Saint-Etienne vs Amiens Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

The newcomers Amiens will be looking for their first victory of the new Ligue 1 campaign when they travel to the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard to take on Saint-Etienne on Saturday evening. Saint-Etienne managed a narrow 0-1 win on the road at Caen last weekend with Romain Hamouma scoring the winner just after the hour mark. On the flip side, Amiens lost 0-2 at home at the hands of Angers, with Christophe Pelissier’s men conceding a goal in each half. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Saint-Etienne looked very well-organized at the back in the opening two games in Ligue 1, while Amiens have failed to find the back of the net in their two fixtures. Saint-Etienne should be able to grab another three points in this one and to keep a clean sheet as well, as Amiens have serious problems going forward.

Saint-Etienne Preview

Saint-Etienne haven’t been spectacular in the opening two Ligue 1 games, but they were efficient enough to collect maximum points thanks to two narrow 1-0 victories over Nice and Caen. Les Verts currently sit in 5th in the Ligue 1 table tied on six points with five other teams. Their goals in this early part of the season have been scored by Jonathan Bamba and Romain Hamouma, with the latter looking to continue last season’s form when he managed to provide seven goals and five assists for his team. St. Etienne brought in Lois Diony from Dijon this summer for €10 million, but the 24-year-old striker has only played 30 minutes in each of Les Verts’ first two league games. Diony enjoyed an excellent Ligue 1 campaign last term, scoring 11 goals and providing eight assists for his former club Dijon. The bad news is that Saint-Etienne have struggled for form at home over the past six months, winning just two of their last eleven home fixtures across all competitions. Actually, St. Etienne were winless in six home league games prior to their 1-0 victory over Nice in their most recent fixture. Head-to-head, Saint-Etienne have won two of their last three meetings with Amiens in Ligue 2, scoring at least two goals in each of these.

Saint-Etienne Team News

Vincent Pajot and Erin Jorge Gomes Pinheiro are both doubts, but Florentin Pogba is out through an ankle injury.

Amiens Preview

Although they have just been promoted from Ligue 2, Amiens are one of the favourites for the drop. Their recent form has seen them lose each of their last five games across all competitions, but the most worrying fact is that they have failed to score in four of these. Aboubakar Kamara was Amiens’ top scorer last season with eleven goals under his belt, but he was sold this summer to Fulham for €6 million. They brought in Moussa Konate from Sion for €3.5m as a replacement, but the 24-year-old striker is not fit to play yet. The minnows are one of the worst attacking teams in Ligue 1 at the moment as they have only delivered two shots on target in two games. Actually, Amiens had one of the worst attacking records in top six sides in Ligue 2 last term. Away from home, Amiens have endured a mixed run of form over the past eight months, registering six defeats, two draws and seven wins in their last 15 away games across all competitions. The good news is that Amiens picked up a 0-2 win over Saint-Etienne on their most recent visit to the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.

Guessouma Fofana is the only injury absentee for Amiens ahead of this trip.
