      St Etienne vs Ajaccio Predictions

      St Etienne should enter Thursday night’s game filled with confidence after picking up an important 1-0 win over Lyon in Ligue 1 action last weekend. It was a second significant win in three games for St Etienne, who beat Angers 1-0 on December 20.

      This young squad has been erratic all season long. St Etienne are fifth in the Ligue 1 table and they’ll have a real chance to make a run in this competition. However, finding a little extra consistency during the second half of their campaign will be crucial.

      Ajaccio are languishing near the bottom end of the Ligue 2 table. They’ve lost just once in their last seven games, though they’ve also only picked up two victories during that span. Their approach might translate into a game like this, where they’ll put men behind the ball and look to shut the game down.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. St Etienne get on a roll

      We’ve said it a couple of times about St Etienne and we’ve been burned, but we really think that this team might’ve turned a little bit of a corner here.

      2. Ajaccio have big problems

      They’re in some difficulty in Ligue 2 and they’ll need to put together a run of better form in league football and that’ll surely be a distraction.

      3. This isn’t the FA Cup

      The French Cup isn’t known for lots of big upsets, it isn’t the FA Cup and St Etienne should take care of business comfortably.
