Saint-Etienne will look to put their 4-0 defeat against PSG behind them when they welcome Caen at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard on Saturday night. Saint-Etienne were beaten 4-0 by Paris Saint Germain last weekend, having delivered just two shots on target. Meanwhile, Caen fought back from one-goal down to secure a 2-2 home draw against Lyon last time out in Ligue 1, with both Claudio Beauvue and Prince Oniangue both getting on the scoresheet. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Saint-Etienne were undefeated in four league games prior to their thrashing 4-0 away loss at PSG last weekend. This leaves Les Verts only in 14th position in the standings tied on six points with Caen and Angers. At home, St. Etienne have lost just two of their last 14 games across all competitions, and are unbeaten in their two home league games of this season.
On the contrary, Caen have also suffered a sole defeat at the hands of PSG, but that was on the opening round. They managed to put their Ligue 1 campaign back on track since then and are now on a four-game undefeated run. Apart from their their loss at PSG, Caen haven’t suffered another away defeat in this early part of the campaign, winning once and drawing once.
St. Etienne did well to beat Caen both home and away in the previous Ligue 1 season and we fancy them to get another one here. Our betting tips and predictions expect St. Etienne to win at odds 1.65.

Correct Score odds
St. Etienne have been very well-organized at the back this season, as prior to their 4-0 loss against PSG, they managed to keep two clean sheets in a row. The bad news is that Les Verts have failed to score a single goal in their most recent three league outings. On the other hand, Caen did well to score at least once in each of their last four games in Ligue 1, including two against Lyon last weekend. Our correct score expect St. Etienne to win 2-1 at odds 8.50.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
St. Etienne have scored at least three goals in three of their last six games across all competitions. In addition, six of their last seven home games have seen more than three goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Lois Diony hasn’t been in such great shape for St. Etienne in this early part of the season, helping the team with one goal and one assist in his five league appearances. The 25-year-old striker has been on fire for Dijon a couple of seasons ago and we back him to replicate that form this season for St. Etienne. Our first goalscorer prediction is Lois Diony at odds 5.50.
