Saint Etienne vs RC Strasbourg Free Betting Tips

The third day of Ligue 1 this weekend.

Saturday at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard, AS Saint-Etienne, will try to join OGC Nice at the top of Ligue 1 by winning their second victory in as many games against Strasbourg. While they should have inaugurated this 2020-2021 season on the lawn of Olympique de Marseille on August 28, the Greens saw this meeting postponed to September 17 due to a chain of positive cases of Covid-19 within the Marseille workforce. Claude Puel’s men will therefore only play their second game of the season, two weeks after their great victory against Lorient (2-0), and will host the RCS.

After 2 days, the Strasbourg is part of the only 3 teams to have suffered 2 setbacks, the first in Lorient (1-3), the second at home against OGC Nice (0-2), today leader. If Brest occupies the position of the red lantern because of its poor goal difference (-5), Dijon and Strasbourg are very close (-4) and will not have to belong in collecting points on pain of having a particularly complicated season. Indeed, clubs like Lens, Montpellier, and Metz also have 0 points but have played only one day, and can potentially already move away from the red zone …

Strasbourg will not lose the 36 games it remains to play, but Thierry Laurey’s men have started the season badly and will not start as favorites at Geoffroy-Guichard. Although the authors of a very disappointing season in 2019-2020, the Greens intend to get off on the right foot and their inaugural success against Lorient goes in this direction. We are counting on another Saint-Etienne victory!
