St Etienne vs Nantes PredictionSt Etienne vs Nantes Prediction and Preview for Sunday's Ligue 1 fixture. The French Ligue 1 rolls on and Nantes visit St. Etienne for the first kick off on Sunday. The visitors are better off at 5th place while the hosts are languishing in 14th, 8 points away from safety. Who will triumph in this contest?
Match status: 2019/20 Ligue 1 - Matchweek 20
Venue: Geoffroy-Guichard (Saint-Étienne)

It has been an inconsistent run for the hosts who last won two consecutive  fixtures back  in October and come into this contest following a  6-1 whooping in the hands of PSG albeit in domestic cup affairs. Coach  Claude Puel is already scratching his head for answers with relegation zone dangers real.

 It will be a tough call against a top six opponent who are gearing up for a top 4 finish at their best. One win in 6 of their most recent outings have seen Les Verts drop invaluable points to teams they should beat. At home, Nantes have been a bit more decent with only one loss in their last 9 home games mainly characterised by draws.

A win here would mean a lot for the hosts who will climb up more than 5 places in this very close Ligue 1 campaign. The only solace for the home team will be their dominance in this contest. St Etienne have a favourable head to head record against match-day Nantes and are unbeaten in 7 meetings between these two sides.

Nantes are having a good season. Excellent by some standards. Coach Christian Gourcuff is definitely doing some things right in the dressing room and last season's 12th place finishers look nothing like that. In fact, Nantes are only two points shy of a Europa League spot and belief is high at their camp at the prospects of continental football.

With just two losses in their last 6 outings, this only confirms their intentions. Nantes ran out 2-0 winners in cup action last Saturday while their most recent league outing was a loss against Angers in a 2-1 result.

They may not have the upper hand in meetings between these two sides but they will be looking to get back to winning ways. It might just be their day if they are on their best. Their only undoing might be their away form which has not been so solid with only three wins in 9 matches on the road.

Injured or Suspended Players:

St Etienne will be without Bouanga D.(Foot Injury),  Fofana W.(Red Card) and  Monnet-Paquet K.(Knee Injury)
The away side Nantes will be missing out on  Coulibaly K.(Thigh Injury), Fabio(Knee Injury) and  Pallois N.(Groin Injury)

St Etienne vs Nantes Predictions

St Etienne have the upper hand in this fixture as far as head to head goes but Nantes have the displays and momentum to carry into this match. As an added advantage, Nantes have had more days to rest than the hosts from cup action and it might count to their side. All in all, affairs between these two sides when Nantes is away have produced over 2.5 goals only once in five. Very likely not much action will be witnessed here although both sides are poised to settle for a draw - a low scoring draw.
