Nantes vs Saint-Etienne Free Predictions and Betting Tips
Saint-Etienne will know their fate in the top flight depending on how they perform in this last game of the season. Here are our free tips and predictions for the big game.
Saint-Etienne to win or draw @1/2 (1.50)
The visitors are in a precarious situation and will fight like never before to win this game. A four-match losing streak, leaking at least two goals in each of those games is undoubtedly a terrible run for Saint-Etienne. However, we think they visitors will be more committed than Nantes in this game. Nantes have lost the chase for top five and looked relaxed after bagging the France Cup trophy. We are backing at least a draw or a win altogether for the visitors. A win or draw for the visitors could see them participate in the promotions playoffs, a situation in which Nantes found themselves last season.
Under 2.5 goals@ 13/10 (2.30)
This will be no easy game, especially because it is a do or die for Saint-Etienne. But while the visitors desperately need survival points, Nantes look to complete the double against them. With that, a tough duel should be expected from kick-off. We are tipping a struggle for points that could result in only a few goals at full-time.

Nantes vs Saint-Etienne Preview and Analysis
Nantes is a team with honour ahead of this last game of the season. With the France Cup trophy, Antoine Kombouare and his men have seemed relaxed in recent assignments. And with no threat and little to play for, we don’t think Nantes will fight as hard as they have. The hosts survived relegation last season after defeating Toulouse in the second round of playoffs.
On the other hand, Saint-Etienne finds themselves is a very difficult position with just a game left. The visitors have lost four matches in a row ahead of this last trip of the season. The worst was seen in the way they have defended recently, leaking 12 goals in those losses alone. While defensive challenges could be a problem for the visitors, they have dominated this game with a few games. With that, we expect a spirited fight for playoffs points.
Here are the likely lineups for this game:
Nantes predicted lineup–Lafont, Appiah, Girotto, Castelletto, Coco, Blas, Cyprien, Merlin, Fabia, Simon and Muani.
Saint-Etienne predicted lineup–Bernadoni, Sow, Mangala, Nade, Macon, Camara, Gourna-Douath, Trauco, Boudebouz, Bouanga and Khaziri.
