Reasons for betting on Paris Saint-Germain vs St. Etienne tip
Neymar and Paris Saint-Germain immediately started terrorizing the defenses in the French La Ligue. They have shown one part of their Arsenal against Toulouse, and we have to admit that it was terrifying. Meanwhile, St. Etienne recorded 3 victories without any media attention, and they are at the top of the table along with the Parisians. This will be the first test for the Paris Saint-Germain offense because the guests in this match have a fantastic defense.
Paris Saint-Germain overview
It seems that the Saints are not going to stop with arrivals anytime soon. Kylian Mbappe is set to join Unai Emery’s team. The hosts have 4 victories in a row and in only one match during that period, we haven’t seen over 2.5 goals. In each of those games Paris Saint-Germain scored at least two goals, and in 3 games he had over 60% of ball possession. That indicates that they like to control the game and impose their tempo. 5 of the previous 7 games in which the host participated we have seen both teams to score. The events with high efficiency are certain when the Saints appear on the pitch.
St. Etienne overview
Les Verts, or the Greens, convincingly opened this season. They have 3 straight wins in which they haven’t conceded a single goal. Overall, 5 most recent matches St. Etienne played, have seen both teams not to score. They prefer to wait for the counter attack and to give up the ball possession to the opponent. Coach Oscar Garcia is trying to build a team without any major stars, where every player is submitted to the squad and the tactics.
3 of the latest 5 games ended with only one goal scored and that proves that the guests have a totally opposite style of play when comparing them to Paris St Germain.
Head to head matches
There is one very unpleasant tradition for the guests in this game. In 15 previous encounters with the club from the French capital, they haven’t won. Paris Saint-Germain has been dominating against this opponent, and in 14 straight games, they have scored against them. Also, PSG scored an opening goal of the match in the last 10 contest in a row. However, the most recent at Park de Princes finished without a winners 1-1.
Prediction for Paris Saint-Germain vs St. Etienne tip
Despite the fact that the guests are excellent at this moment, we do not believe that they have a chance against Neymar and the boys. Anything else than a convincing win by the hosts would be regarded as a huge sensation. Paris Saint-Germain to win with a handicap – 1.5 is our first choice. The second one would be over 1.5 goals in the first half time.
