Paris Saint-Germain vs Saint-Etienne Preview

Paris Saint-Germain vs Saint-Etienne

Competition – France Ligue 1

Stadium – Parc des Princes

Date: 14th September 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

These two sides have yet to lose a game this season and they will both be looking to maintain that record after this game however PSG have a better record against their visitors.

Saint Etienne are one of the teams who are struggling to match PSG’s dominance of the French game, and they have gone 16 games without beating the defending champions – it seems their first loss of the season awaits them here.

The visitors started their campaign with a win over Guingamp, however, the three games they have played since that time have all ended in draws and they have scored just once in them.

These performances are a far cry from last season when they missed out on European football by goal difference.

PSG are the biggest team in the French league by a mile, and they have continued to show how big they are with no losses or draws this season.

However, they have kept just one clean sheet and their last game saw them concede twice against newly promoted Nimes so they could allow Saint-Etienne to get a goal here.

PSG have won 40 of the last 68 games between these two sides and Saint-Etienne haven’t won any of the last 16 matches.

Unsurprisingly PSG are heavy odds-on favourites to come out on top and goal markets suggest there will be 3 or more goals in this tie.
