Les Dogues lack bite to beat Les Verts

Lille are in crisis mode as they prepare to face St Etienne at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard this weekend.

The Ligue 1 champions have picked up just a solitary point in two matches and shipped four goals on Saturday at home to Nice, the team now led by their title-winning manager Christophe Galtier.

That was probably no coincidence and Les Verts won’t have quite the same inside information to take down Les Dogues on Saturday.

St Etienne have drawn both of their league games this season, mounting a strong second-half comeback to get the equaliser in a 1-1 draw with Lorient in their opening game then being pegged back twice away to Lens.

Claude Puel’s side are able to create opportunities, but lack a killer touch and the manager’s reputation for setting up his team’s to be hard to beat will ensure they are always worth backing for a draw.

The draw is the best play in the outright betting market with Lille’s brilliant away form of last season balanced out by the departure of Galtier and injury absence of star midfielder Renato Sanches through injury.

St Etienne aren’t quite convincing enough to back for a home win with their propensity to drop off when leading matches a characteristic that could come back to haunt them again here.

The underlying stats since the start of last season with 60% of Les Verts’ home games being ‘unders’ and likewise 55% of Lille’s away games point us in the direction of a 1-1 final score prediction.
