PSG won the trophy in Ligue 1 last season and they are again on of the main candidates to win the title. They started good this season with two wins, but in the previous round they lost against Monaco 3-1. Team from Paris is much weaker this season because two very important players, Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Manchester United) and David Luiz (Chelsea), both left the club. Even Matuidi wanted to leave the club and join Juventus, but at the end he stay in PSG. Loreunt Blanc also left the club, but on the other side they appointed ex-Sevilla manager Unai Emery as their new one. So, many changes were done in the club, but despite that fact they are still the main favorite to win the title. Without any doubt, they will not dominate in French football as they did in the last few seasons, but they are still the strongest team in France.
St Etienne started this season very solid (1-1-1) and their main goal for this season is to reach the place which leads in the Europa League next season. They finished the last season at the 6th position and reach the place in Europa League after they eliminated Beitar Jerusalem in the qualification. St Etienne traditionally play very good upfront their supporters, but on away ground they are not impressive, especially when they are playing against stronger teams. Against PSG they don’t have good records. In the last 9 matches against team from Paris in all competitions, they St Etienne lost all nine games. Visitors are underdogs and it would be a big surprise if they stay unbeaten on this game.
Home side miss Aurier, Thiago Silva and Pastore, while on the other side visitors will be without Poloment, Dabo and Corgnet.
PSG are much stronger side and they shouldn’t have big problems to win this game, but the odd for home win is very poor. Visitors have nothing to lose and they will try at least to score at Parc des Princes. I expect interesting and open match between PSG vs St Etienne and at least three goals.
PSG vs St Etienne Betting Tip: over 2.5 goals @ 1.62 (Bet365)
