21st January – 21:00, Parc Olympique Lyonnais, Lyon
Lyon and St. Etienne will open the action in the Ligue 1 22nd round on Friday evening. The home side is not in good shape, and they are looking for a way out of the crisis. On the other hand, the visitors cannot struggle for survival in the French top-flight.
Lyon vs St. Etienne Match Preview & Team News
Lyon hopes to win again following the 1:0 Ligue 1 triumph over ESTAC Troyes. Moussa Dembele scored the winning goal from the penalty spot in the 33rd minute. The crowd saw fewer than three goals per game five times in the previous six games where Lyon has taken part. Regarding the goal distribution during this period, opposition teams scored a total of five, and Lyon got themselves six. Moussa Dembele is currently the best player on the team, and a move to Lyon turned out to be the right move. Peter Bosz has several injured players in his team, and the most missing will be Jeff Raine-Adelaide, who will have a long break due to a ruptured cruciate ligament.
Having been defeated in the last match against RC Lens in the Ligue 1 competition, St. Etienne and their traveling fans will hope for a better result here. The team is in a big crisis, having six defeats in a row that hammered them to the bottom spot. Stats do not lie, and St. Etienne has been scored in five of the last six games, conceding a total of 11 goals. On defense, St. Etienne looks like they have a soft stomach. On the other hand, the away side’s top scorer Wahbi Khazri is currently in the Tunisia squad, participating in the African Cup of Nations. Thanks to a fully injury-free team available for selection, the St. Etienne boss Pascal Dupraz has no fitness concerns whatsoever before this game.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Although they are not in good form, Lyon might take advantage of this opportunity to get out of the crisis. St. Etienne is coming on the road without the best scorer, and what is worse for the visitors is in disastrous form. Lyon is the favorite in this match and is expected to resolve the question of the winner at halftime.
Goals Market Prediction
St. Etienne has been pretty inefficient in front of the opposition’s net lately, scoring just once on the previous five occasions. Although Lyon is not too tight in the back, we expect them to keep the clean sheet.
