Saint-Etienne faces Strasbourg
Saint-Etienne faces Strasbourg at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard in a match from the third round of the French Ligue 1. We will try to present you the most important facts about it in our soccer betting winning tips for the day.
Saint-Etienne started the 2020/21 campaign in the Ligue 1 in the best way possible – with a win. Claude Puel’s team hosted Lorient at home and celebrated a comfortable 2-0 win. The big hero of the game was the striker Romain Hamouma who scored both goals for the home side. It was Arnaud Nordin who provided the two assists for Hamouma’s goals, so it was an excellent game for him as well.
The 2019/20 season was really dissapointing for Saint-Etienne, so now the team will do its best to do better. Maybe you remember that last season Saint-Etienne were actually closer to the relegation zone than to the top. It’s now up to Claude Puel and his players to find a way to improve this performance.
Strasbourg are currently in the relegation zone of the Ligue 1 with two losses from two matches played. They opened their season with a defeat against Lorient which was followed by a 0-2 loss at home against Nice. The manager Thierry Laurey didn’t have much of a reason to be happy with his team’s performance in these two matches.
Now Laurey has a problem on his hands. The team morale in Strasbourg’s dressing room is surely not the best one, so he must find a way to boost his players’ confidence. This is the way to improve in the next rounds.
That’s our soccer betting winning tips for the Ligue 1 game between Saint-Etienne and Strasbourg on Saturday. The home side is the favourite here, so let’s see if they can prove it on the pitch, too.
