    St Etienne

      Tip Reasoning

      Talk about a match-up between two teams that we’ve struggled to figure out in their respective domestic football competitions so far this season? St Etienne had a winning streak snapped by a shock 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Nice at the weekend. Meanwhile, Lazio surprised us by completing a confident 2-1 away victory over Verona after losing 4-0 and 5-0 to Chievo and Napoli respectively in previous away games.

      In their opening group matches, Lazio did pretty well to draw 1-1 with last season’s finalists Dnipro. St Etienne arguably missed an opportunity in their first group game being held 2-2 by Norwegian side Rosenborg in a home game.

      Lazio are an enjoyable team to watch, they’ve got a a lot of attacking quality and they’ve never been afraid to give it a go. St Etienne appeared to have re-discovered a defensive identity before last weekend’s disaster against Nice.

      On paper, home field advantage should be of benefit to Lazio, they’ve won their last six home games, keeping clean sheets in three of those. This is a team that is comfortable at home and they play their entertaining brand of football when they are comfortable.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Lazio quality

      We think Lazio just have the extra little bit of quality in this match-up. They’ll be difficult to contain for St Etienne, who don’t have a huge amount of European football experience in their squad.

      2. St Etienne in danger of being negative

      St Etienne’s natural instinct might just be to sit back and look to shut the game down defensively, that could be a very dangerous strategy against a team in Lazio that likes to play with the ball and can do some serious damage in possession.

      3. Home field advantage

      Lazio’s home record speaks for itself and we expect them to keep that performance up in this game.
