St Etienne stand at the 6th position and they are playing very good this season. Their main goal is to finish the season in the top 4 and play in some of the European competitions next season. The second team on the table, Monaco, have only 6 points more, so for St Etienne that position is reachable. The match against PSG, the best team in Ligue 1 for years, maybe is not the right moment to take some points, but they have nothing to lose and will be fully motivated to beat them. St Etienne are typical home team and the most of points this season they took upfront their supporters. They are the second best home team in Ligue 1 (7-2-2), after PSG.

PSG stand at the top of the table with 60 points, 21 more than second Monaco, and they don’t have other competitors who can stop them. They want to win the title as soon as possible, so that they can focus on the UEFA Champions League. They are face Chelsea in the 1/8 finals for two weeks. Visitors on this match are the best team in league, still unebaten (19-3-0) and without any doubt they are huge favorites to win this game. Good news for Paris Saint-Germain coach Laurent Blanc is that Marquinhos and Marco Verratti are back in the squad, after both missed the last three games due to injury. Their striker, Cavani, is not in the good form, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Di Maria are playing fantastic and those two players will be the most dangerous for St Etienne’s defence.
