Saint Etienne
    Rosenborg

      Tip Reasoning

      Saint Etienne didn’t make much progress in the Europa League last season finishing bottom of a group that included Inter Milan and eventual finalists Dnipro. They’ve found some good form in Ligue 1 play winning three straight after a shaky start, but they’ve got another difficult route in European competition playing in a group that includes Lazio and Dnipro.

      This is a young squad that aims to shut it down defensively first and foremost. There’s been an increase focus by the club to play with a little more freedom and open up their play in terms of width a little more. However, there’s still plenty to be done in that regard.

      Their opponent on Thursday night is Norwegian side Rosenborg, who advanced to this stage of the competition by beating European side Steau Bucharest across two legs. They were impressive across those two legs pulling off a 3-0 upset away from home to effectively seal the tie.

      They are in good position to retain their Eliteserien title with an 11-point advantage and will be turning some attention towards this competition.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Saint Etienne extra quality

      There’s just a little bit of a quality difference between Saint Etienne and Rosenborg, who are a decent squad, but don’t possess the same ‘star power’.

      2. Saint Etienne form

      Recent form suggests that this young side is playing some of its better football. They might not be ready to challenge Ligue 1’s better sides, but they should have too much for Rosenborg.

      3. Important game for favourites

      Considering the other teams in this group, it’s an important match-up for Saint Etienne. They’ll be focused and ready to come away with a significant three points here.
