The prediction of Lille and St. Etienne comes before the match of the 28th round of Ligue 1. This game will be played on March 11th, at Stade Pierre-Mauroy, France. In this match overview, we bring you betting tips and accurate predictions of results based on the analysis of these two sides.
Lille vs St. Etienne Match Preview and Team News
Lille grabbed a third win in four matches on the weekend in the domestic top flight after recording a comprehensive 4-0 rout at home against Clermont, which helped the hosts up into 7th place. It goes without saying that Lille will be keen to repeat that scoreline when they play host to lowly St Etienne in Friday night’s encounter at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy. Despite suffering back-to-back losses against Brest and PSG, Lille has responded in a positive fashion by recording wins against Montpellier and Lyon along with a point in a draw with Metz, while the hosts have lost just two of their last 15 matches overall. Jonathan Bamba is a great player, and many teams are interested in this guy. He has good dribbles, and his greatest virtue is speed. He is the future of French football. Jonathan David is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, he has excellent ball control, and he can be satisfied with his games.
St. Etienne themselves grabbed a fourth win in their last six matches overall in the French top flight on the weekend when they registered a 1-0 home win over Metz, which has just about helped the visitors keep their heads above water for the time being. However, St. Etienne is certainly not out of the woods by any means, and although they’ve recorded earlier wins against Angers, Montpellier and Clermont, the visitors had had to endure a miserable run of results in Ligue 1, which saw them lose seven straight games on the trot. Results away from home have also hampered St. Etienne’s ambitions of moving away from the relegation zone in the French top-flight as the visitors have managed to collect just three wins out of their last 14 outings on their travels. Mahdi Camara found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
