Saint-Etienne will look for third wins in a row in Ligue 1 when they host Monaco at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard on Friday night. Saint-Etienne managed a 3-2 win on the road at Toulouse in midweek thanks to goals from Lois Diony, Remy Cabella and Yannis Salibur. On the other hand, Monaco have suffered a disappointing 0-1 home loss against Angers, in a game in which they failed to deliver a single shot on target. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Saint-Etienne have been amazing in this early part of the new Ligue 1 season, having lost just once in seven fixtures. Les Verts are currently on a two-game winning streak in the league, including their midweek victory against Toulouse. In addition, St. Etienne are undefeated in three home league games this season. Overall, they have lost just one of their last 13 competitive home fixtures.
Monaco’s sole victory of this 2018/19 competitive season came against Nantes on the opening round of the new Ligue 1 season. They are currently winless in seven competitive fixtures, which includes a 1-2 home loss against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League last week.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Five of Saint-Etienne’s last six home meetings with Monaco in Ligue 1 have seen few than three goals. On the other hand, Monaco have netted more than two goals just in one of their four competitive trips of the season. In addition, the most recent meeting between these two ended with the 1-0 scoreline. Our total goals prediction fancies under 2.5 goals at odds 1.70.

First Goalscorer odds
Lois Diony has been one of Saint-Etienne’s best players in this early part of the season. The 25-year-old striker has already helped the team with two goals and one assist in his seven appearances and we fancy him to add more to his tally here. Our first goalscorer prediction is Lois Diony at odds 6.50.
