You never quite know what to expect from Saint-Etienne this season, who are surely one of the most inconsistent sides in the division, but their 0-1 win over Angers last weekend gave them a healthy six-point buffer over the relegation zone and they are probably only two or three wins away from securing their safety. Three points are unlikely to come against Monaco though, who have lost just once in their last 16 games in all competitions. The visitors still won’t have given up on their title aspirations here, and they are likely to prove too strong for Saint-Etienne.
Head to Head Statics:
The reverse encounter had ended in a 2-2 draw.Les Verts had won four of the former five clashes.The latest match-up at this venue had ended in a 1-0 win for the hosts.In the past seven-year period, the visitors have failed to score just twice at this ground.
Considering the above statics, we expect Monaco to have an easy one here.
Pick: Over 1.5 goals or Away win or Over 2.5 bookings
