Saint Etienne vs PSG Prediction & Match Preview

Saint Etienne vs PSG
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 6th January 2021
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.


All eyes will be on Stade Geoffroy-Guichard when St. Etienne and PSG face each other in the Ligue 1 round 18.

Les Verts made a slow start to the season, but their performances from December are surely giving fans a reason for optimism.

St. Etienne are undefeated in the previous six league fixtures, but they face an uphill task in the midweek clash against PSG.

The reigning champions aim to kick off 2021 in style, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at les Verts.

New boss Mauricio Pochettino is surely capable of helping the team improve their game, and given Kylian Mbappe’s form, away win should be considered.

Even though Neymar is unlikely to recover in time to face St. Etienne, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the title holders, who are eager to regain top position in the standings.

Team News:

Saint-Etienne will be forced into a midfield reshuffle as Mahdi Camara and Yvan Neyou are both suspended due to an accumulation of yellow cards.

Zaydou Youssouf is all but guaranteed to return to the engine room alongside Lucas Gourna-Douath, while Panagiotis Retsos, Yvann Macon, Gabriel Silva and Wahbi Khazri are all injured.

Harold Moukoudi returns from a ban of his own for this one and should demote 18-year-old Saidou Sow to the bench.

Meanwhile, Pochettino could be without as many as 10 players for his first match in charge, with Neymar not expected to come back from his ankle injury just yet.

Defensive trio Layvin Kurzawa, Alessandro Florenzi and Presnel Kimpembe also remain in the treatment room, while Rafinha has reportedly contracted coronavirus.

Juan Bernat is out for the long-term, and there are still question marks over the fitness of Danilo Pereira, Mauro Icardi, Abdou Diallo and Pablo Sarabia, but the latter two have outside chances of returning for this one.

Saint-Etienne possible starting lineup:
Moulin; Debuchy, Moukoudi, Kolodziejczak, Trauco; Youssouf, Gourna-Douath; Monnet-Paquet, Aouchiche, Nordin; Bouanga
