Saint-Etienne to score first @ 61/100 (1.61)
Saint-Etienne will likely score the first goal in this Ligue 1 fixture. The hosts are determined to survive relegation and with ten games left to play, a home victory is the perfect opportunity to get the important survival points. Apart from the barren draw the last time out, Etienne has been consistent in scoring goals.
They come to this game having failed to score only once in the last six outings and only one loss within that duration. On the flipside, Troyes bagged back to back clean sheets wins in the last two but lost twice in their six games. These teams have met 17 times, with Etienne winning 10 of them and losing only thrice to the visitors.
Both teams will find the net @19/20 (1.95)
We expect both teams to score in this game. While St. Etienne has historically dominated this fixture, they have struggled to keep a clean sheet in recent games. The hosts boast only two clean sheets in the last ten games across different competitions.

Saint-Etienne vs Troyes Game Preview, Tips and Lineups
At positions 18 and 15 respectively on Ligue 1 table, Saint-Etienne and Troyes are clearly struggling teams that look to get the better of each other in this encounter. Ten wins for Etienne against Troyes’s three victories and four draws in the last 17 meetings signal a game that will likely have a winner.
