After a first victory over Nantes last followed the bitter 0: 1 defeat at Amiens. During the week, there is now a real hit in Ligue 1: LOSC Lille receives AS Saint-Etienne at home!

The “Doggen” were behind PSG, the second strongest home team in Ligue 1. Whether the team of Christophe Galtier can build on the strong season before remains to be seen, especially as soon threatened even the double burden of the Champions League.

The team of Christophe Galtier shone especially at home. Behind PSG, LOSC Lille was the league’s strongest in the league, scoring a whopping 43 points. Joins the team of Galtier it also in the new season, is in the top match between Lille vs St. Etienne a prediction on the “Doggen” obvious. Galtier himself was a coach at St. Etienne for just over seven years.
So far, Lille have had a home win and an away defeat in their first two Ligue 1 games. The recent defeat can be attributed, inter alia, to the relegation, by which the “Great Danes” were significantly affected.
With players like Mendes, Leao and Pepe lost LOSC Lille important performers in the summer. In addition to the recent transfer of Renato Sanches, the “Doggen” with players like Yazici, Osimhen and Weah were able to strengthen well. Especially at Osimhen Lille seems to have landed a stroke of luck. At his debut debut for the “Doggen” the newcomer hit twice.
Lille will also miss injured Xeka, Soumaoro, Gabriel and Agouzoul in addition to the suspended Boubakary Soumaré. According to the strong performances in the home season last season, we would certainly venture a chance to lucrative odds on Lille against St. Etienne on the home side.

St. Etienne – Statistics & Current Form
The “Les Verts” from Saint-Etienne remained unbeaten in contrast to LOSC Lille in the first two Ligue 1 games. After a first victory at Dijon was followed by a surprising Heimremis last. Under Ghislain Printant, who previously served as assistant to former coach Gasset, St. Etienne wants to find his way back into the top third of the table.
St. Etienne took fourth place last season and was able to defend the starting position for the Europa League. Before the group stage of the Europa League starts, the team can fully focus on the national competition. Like LOSC Lille, the “Les Verts” benefited from their home strength in the last season.
In foreign parts, the services were partly mixed. Recently, St. Etienne remained unbeaten in six away games (seasonal). Overall, there was an away record of 6-7-6 last season. At the season opener in Dijon St. Etienne set off with two early goals at full speed, but then remained harmless for long stretches of the game. At the end, there was still a 2-1 win.
In the home strong “Doggen” wants to prove the team Printant. The Champions League participant certainly has more individual quality in the squad, but in contrast to the “Doggen” St. Etienne was able to hold the performers as far as possible. Defensive jewel William Saliba was sold, but still plays for St. Etienne on loan.
The “Les Verts” have not performed very well in the first two league games, which is why the fairly balanced odds are surprising. With Aholou, Fofana, Saliba, Silva and Monnet-Paquet missing five important players in Lille. Even the minimal point win will be difficult for the guests to achieve, which is why we almost exclude a prediction for an away win at Lille against St. Etienne.
