Troyes vs Saint-Etienne Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Saint-Etienne will be aiming to close the gap at the top of the Ligue 1 table when they travel to the Stade de l’Aube to take on Troyes on Sunday afternoon. Troyes managed a dramatic 0-1 victory on the road at Metz last time out in Ligue 1 thanks to a stoppage-time goal from Samuel Grandsir. Meanwhile, Saint-Etienne fought back from one-goal down twice to secure a 2-2 home draw against Rennes last weekend thanks to goals from Silva Gabriel and Jonathan Bamba. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Saint-Etienne are the in-form team in this tie and I fancy them to grab all three points in this one, but I’m not expecting goals. Four of the last five meetings between these two sides have seen few than three goals scored. In addition, St. Etienne’s two away victories in this early part of the campaign ended with the 0-1 score.

Troyes Preview

Troyes’ form in this early part of the season has been a complete mixed bag with two wins, three defeats and three draws in their opening seven games in Ligue 1. They finally managed to get back to winning ways in Ligue 1 last weekend, beating Metz 0-1 away from home thanks to a stoppage-time winner. Actually, Samuel Grandsir’s goal in the stoppage time was Troyes’ sole goal in their last four games across all competitions. Troyes find themselves in 12th spot in the standings tied on eight points with Montpellier and Angers, just three points clear of the drop zone. Scoring goals has been Troyes’ main problem in this early part of the season as they have only netted five goals in seven rounds. Samuel Grandsir has been Troyes’ most dangerous player in front of goal so far this season, helping the team with two goals and one assist in his seven league appearances. At home, Troyes are winless in four home games in Ligue 1 this season, scoring just one goal in the process. Furthermore, Troyes are winless in their last three home meetings with Saint-Etienne across all competitions, conceding two goals in two of these.

Troyes Team News

Benjamin Nivet is missing through a foot injury, while Mathieu Deplagne is out through suspension.

Saint-Etienne Preview

On the contrary, Saint-Etienne have been one of the best teams in Ligue 1 in this early part of the season, losing just once in seven league fixtures. Les Verts head into this clash on the back of a three-game unbeaten streak in Ligue 1, including a 2-2 home draw against Rennes last time out. This leaves St. Etienne in 4th position in the league table with 14 points under their belts after seven rounds, just five points behind the current leaders Paris Saint Germain. Their solid performance throughout this early part of the season has been heavily based on their solid defence as they have only conceded six goals in seven league games. At the other end of the field, St. Etienne managed a decent tally of nine goals in seven rounds, including four from their topscorer Jonathan Bamba. Away from home, Saint-Etienne have endured a mixed run of form over the past five months, registering five defeats, four wins and one draw in their last ten games across all competitions. The good news is that St. Etienne are unbeaten in their three visits to the Stade de l’Aube, scoring two goals in two of these.

Saint-Etienne Team News

Romain Hamouma is a doubt, but Florentin Pogba is out through an ankle injury.
