Our Top Three Saint-Etienne vs Nantes Predictions
Relegation-threatened Saint-Etienne plays the last game of the year against Nantes. Can they end the first-half of the season on a high note or things will only get worse for Pascal Dupraz? Here is how we think regarding our best two picks for this match:
More misery on Pascal Dupraz @ 9/5 (2.80)
Saint-Etienne head coach, Pascal Dupraz could face the sack before the turn of a new year if poor results remain the order of the day. Despite winning 1-0 in the Coupe de France a few days ago, Saint-Etienne comes to this match with four consecutive losses in Ligue 1, during which they scored only one match. We don’t think they stand a chance against Nantes, a team that comes to this match with back to back wins. Nantes seems to have regained ground after posting no win in November.
Under 2.5 @ 4/5 (1.80)
The struggle for survival seems to have been the reason why most bookies have handed Saint-Etienne a narrow edge of beating Nantes in this match. Moreover, looking at head-to-head between the two head coaches where there have been 3W to Pascal Dupraz, 2W to Antoine Kombouare, and one draw in six meetings between the two tacticians, we expected a tough duel with a few goals.

Saint-Etienne vs Nantes Game Preview: Will St.Etienne End the year with hope?
Hope is all that is left for Saint-Etienne as they prepare to welcome Nantes for the last Ligue 1 match of the year 2021. This fixture is expected to create a lot of tension given that most bookies seemed to have handed the hosts a narrow edge to beat resurgent Nantes. But the question is what’s our take? See below for more details about this game.
Four losses in a row leave Saint-Etienne at the mercy of Nantes in this fixture. But in football, anything is possible. Seven draws in the last 20 meetings also means this fixture has never been easy for either side. However, the hosts boast nine wins and only four losses against 4 victories for Nantes in previous twenty encounters. Green, Moukoudi and Hamouma are on the injury list while Bouanga is suspended.
Etienne Predicted Lineup: Green, Silva, Nade, Kolodziejzak, Trauco, Boudebouz, Camara, Youssouf, Nordin, Khazri, Neyou.
Nantes will be without Blas who is suspended. However, with a 99% percent of the squad fit for this fixture, Nantes will leave nothing to chance in their quest for a better season.
Nantes Predicted lineup: Lafont, Pallois, Girotto, Jean-C Harles, Fabio. Muani, Cyprien, Chirivella, Geubbels, Coulibaly and Coco.
