Betting Tips for the game
Strasbourg looked decent in the second half of their pre-season campaign and carried on this form into the first round of this new Ligue 1 season last weekend. They picked up an unexpected 0-2 win on the road at Bordeaux and they are now in front of their own fans for the first time this season looking for another three points. Strasbourg’s home form over the past few months has been pretty good, as they have lost just four of their last 15 fixtures.
Meanwhile, Saint-Etienne have lost just one of their last eight games across all competitions. They are currently on a four-game unbeaten run, including a 2-1 home victory against Guingamp last weekend. Saint-Etienne’s head-to-head record against Strasbourg is very good as they have lost just once in the last five meetings between these two.
Saint-Etienne have a strong squad this season and we fancy them to secure their second victory of the season here. Our betting tips and predictions expect Saint-Etienne to win at odds 2.50.
