Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Saint Etienne play host to Nice at their Stade Geoffroy-Guichard in what is expected to be a very entertaining game. Les Verts aim to make amends for back-to-back losses to Rennes and Lens, but they will have to do it without suspended duo Khazri – Kolodziejcak. Saint Etienne are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but we are not tempted to put our money on the hosts as they head into Sunday’s match with a severely-weakened squad.
Les Aiglons, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 2-1 win over Nantes, and it is no wonder the odds for away win have been dropping rapidly. Nice are not regarded as good travellers, but they should take advantage of the current situation in Saint Etienne’s dressing room. Denmark international Kasper Dolberg is likely to lead the line for the visitors.
