Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Lille will be looking to build on a routine 4-0 win over Lorient when they take on St Etienne at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard on Sunday evening. Les Dogues aim to keep their title hopes alive, and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play against les Verts. Since Fonte, Mandava, and Yilmaz return from suspension for the visitors, it should come as no surprise the odds for away win have been dropping.
St Etienne, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-1 loss to Brest, and they must be low on confidence ahead of the visit of Lille. Given les Dogues’ attacking potential, we are positive that the title-chasing team will pick up all three points from the match. Khazri and Hamouma are back to contention for the hosts after missing the Brest game through suspension.
