Bruno Genesio has been in Lyon since 2011, and at the end of 2015, he was appointed principal coach. Since then, he is trying to win the title, but until the PSG does not break, the chances are pretty low. In the previous season he ranked third and qualified directly in the Champions League. The current season started him pretty well, with some surprising results. In the Champions League, after 4 stages, occupies the second place with 6 points and has high chances to finish the first two positions. He did not miss a match, and the only victory gained Etihad Stadium, where he beat Manchester City 2-1.

It is hard to believe, but Saint-Etienne is the team with most championships winning: 10. However, it should be noted that the 10 championships were conquered between 1956 and 1981. In the previous season, with Jean-Louis Gasset on the bench , finished in 7th place, with points being ranked last in the Europa League. One of the team’s most important players, Jonathan Bamba, has moved to Lille, but so far he does not feel his lack. He is currently ranked No. 5 in the 23-point championship, and in the event of a victory, he can climb third in Montpellier. The previous round played against Reims. It was a game without a history, which easily won 2-0. This season he suffered only two defeats in foreign lands. With Lille and PSG, he did quite well. Tunisian Wahbi Khazri, was transferred last summer from Rennes. He adapted very quickly and became the best marker of the 6-track team. Defensive is the strength of the team, even if it has received 17 goals in the 13 stages.

They lost only one match on their own, but given that players are evolving into two compilations, physically they may have problems. Rumors have arisen, looking at the fact that Saint-Etienne supporters will not be present at the match. Under these conditions, the guests will have a very difficult match, but I do not think they will lose a bigger difference than a goal.
Betting Prediction: Saint-Etienne +1.5 (Asian Handicap)
