Nice vs St. Etienne – 11/05/22 – XenBet

Competition: Ligue 1

Market: Nice win

Odds: 3/5 @ 888sport

Glad to make a return to Ligue 1 duties in midweek, Nice will welcome St. Etienne to the Allianz Riviera on Wednesday evening.

Starting with the hosts, suffering a heartbreaking 1-0 loss against Nantes in the Coupe de France final a few days ago, Nice will be seeking an immediate response here. Smelling the chance to make an immediate return to winning ways on Wednesday evening, Christophe Galtier’s men have still continued to gain plenty of praise from across France this year. With a European finish at the top of their agenda, the Eaglets were last seen on Ligue 1 duties picking up a 1-0 victory against Bordeaux on their travels. Likewise, aside from a 1-0 defeat against Monaco last month, Nice have picked up nine points from their last four top-flight outings. With just a single defeat on home soil since back on February 6th, there is no doubt that the former St. Etienne boss should be looking to get one over on his old employers in midweek.

As for the visitors, last seen signing off April with a routine 2-0 defeat away at Rennes, it is fair to say that the Stéphanois are enduring a real Ligue 1 nightmare this season. Making the trip to the Allianz Riviera on Wednesday evening sat three points adrift in the relegation play-off spot, Head Coach Pascal Dupraz finds growing pressure on his shoulders. Despite picking up a hard-fought 2-1 victory against Brest last month, it appears that was just a minor boost for St. Etienne. With just a single win to their name from any of their last eight outings, a run that stems back to March 6th, they will also be worried by their most recent meeting against Wednesday’s opponents. Hit with a 3-0 drumming when they welcomed Nice to the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard back in September, we’re backing a similar home victory for the European chasers here.
