Saint-Etienne to Win

That’s why our next free betting tip backs the hosts to win again.

Krasso to Score Anytime

Our final Saint-Etienne vs Niort prediction is for Saint-Etienne’s top goalscorer Krasso (14 goals) to continue his excellent campaign with another goal. Krasso has been on fire lately – 5 goals in the last 7 rounds and most recently scored for his national squad too. Krasso has scored in 3 of the last 4 home games and we think he can do it again.

Saint-Etienne vs Niort Lineups and Team News

Saint-Etienne

Saint-Eteinne are currently enjoying a 7-game unbeaten run. Yes, they’ve drawn all of the last 3 but it’s worth stressing that 2 of these 3 draws were against the top 2 sides in the standings so Saint-Etienne’s form is clearly impressive right now.

Latest news

In-form striker Krasso is expected to continue leading the attack as the other main striker Charbonnier remains sidelined. Defensively the team is depleted for this match too as the main centre-back Petrot and the starting holding midfielder Monconduit are both missing suspended. Both big absentees and Saint-Etienne might be weaker at the back without them.

Niort

Niort stopped a 4-game losing run right before the international break with a 3-2 home win vs Laval. Fought valiantly all match and despite still remaining in last place at least preserved some hope that survival could be possible. This was the first win under their new manager Simondi and he has seemed to have rallied the troupes.

Latest news

Badly crippled for this trip with 3 key players set to be absent due to suspensions. Top goalscorer Bouttoba, crucial playmaker Kabore and the solid defender Conte are all serving bans. As if this is not enough 9 others are reported to be nursing injuries and not certain how many of them could be involved. Due to this Niort are stripped to the bare bone for this match.
