Saint-Etienne vs PSG Head-to-head
- Saints have been unable to register a win over this opponent in 24 previous meetings.
- Both teams have entered the scoresheet in 3 of their 4 preceding duels.
- 4 or more goals were scored in 3 of the last 5 h2h games.
- The visitors’ previous loss at this venue came in 2008.
While the Green was victorious in their trip to Troyes in a 0-1 score line in their preceding league fixture, PSG beat Nantes 3-1 at home despite getting their goalkeeper sent off with nearly half an hour left in the match.
A.S.S.E. started off the season without a win in their first 12 league games. The team had gained only 6 points from those fixtures but with 2 wins on the bounce since they have further added 6 points.
With 6 draws and 2 wins the team is currently 19th in the table with 12 points, 3 points ahead of Metz who are bottom of the table. A club that looked likely to play in Ligue 2 until recently with a win here could end up as high as 14th in the table.
The Parisians have walked the league so far this season. They have been the best team in the division and by a distance. They have lost just once in 14 league games that came against Rennes on the road and have further dropped a couple of points through the draw against Marseille. With 37 points they are 11 points ahead of Nice who are 2nd in the league.
Saint-Etienne vs PSG Prediction
The hosts’ recent resurgence is impressive for a team in the relegation zone but with just a home win in the season, they stand no chance against the mighty Parisians who have lost just once in league games on the road since February.
Despite leading the league by a country mile, The Red-and-Blues have conceded in all but one of their last 9 fixtures. The Saints on the other hand have scored in 6 consecutive and against a side who has just 1 win in their last 5 away games should get on the scoresheet at least once.
While the home side has conceded 2 goals on average, the visitors have scored 2.33 goals on average per game in the league. This should be a high scoring contest.
