Saint-Etienne

Saint-Etienne failed to gain consistency in the current season. Team was unable to achieve success in the French Cup. After a victory in the first round the Greens got eliminated by Bergerac (0:1). 

In 38 rounds of Ligue 1 Pascal Dupraz' men have recorded seven victories and 11 draws, delivering 32 points and an 18th spot in the standings. Team put up a disastrous defensive performance, conceding 77 goals in the season. In the last match of Ligue 1 season the Saints drew to Nantes (1:1). Neyou Noupa andKolodziejczak are sidelined for the upcoming match.

Prediction

In the first match opponents created a bunch of goal opportunities and we are expecting more of the same here. Clubs are worthy of each other, so after the first game they are on level terms. Hosts will probably have a slight edge due to fans' support, but Auxerre are in a great form and should be able to put up a good fight. Nonetheless, we are expecting a cautious performance on defense from both sides, because any mistake can ruin the chances for a Ligue 1 spot. 

Our prediction - total under 2,5 goals 

We think that opponents are evenly matched, so we can't rule out a draw here. Both clubs will try to at least avoid a defeat, so game may go to extra-time. The winner will probably be decided in extra-time or in the penalty shoot-out. 

Our second bet is on a draw
