St. Etienne vs Annecy Top Predictions and Bets

Once a famous club known throughout Europe, St. Etienne is going through some of the hardest times in its history.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

The first game between these clubs, actually the only one ever played, in December ended with Annecy winning 2-1. Annecy has one of the premier defenses in Ligue 2 conceding only 19 goals while scoring 22. But, in their last five games, as the season is progressing and there is more fatigue because of the tough and predictable schedule, more goals are being scored. During this period they had three games with BTTS covered. St. Etienne passed that mark on two occasions.

Under 2.5 Goals

Despite having a decent goal-scoring record lately, this is predicted to be a tough defensive encounter because of the needs that St. Etienne has at this moment in time. For the last five games, the home team managed to get a couple of wins, but when it comes to under 2.5 goals, they covered that mark four times. Annecy passed it in three games. Their only h2h match featured three goals. For the season, St. Etienne has the second-highest ‘over’ stat in the league, while Annecy is a top-five ‘under’ team.

St. Etienne to Win

St. Etienne earned three out of their total of five wins while playing in front of their fans. They did it by controlling the tempo of the game and making sure there is no opportunities for the opposing team to score goals. Annecy’s away form consists of two wins, five draws, and three losses. The last three games as a guest team ended with split points.

St. Etienne vs Annecy Match Preview and Team News

St. Etienne

They were one of the famous French clubs in the 1960s and 1970s winning a total of ten league titles. But, those times have come and gone, and for the last few years, St. Etienne is going through a major financial crisis. They must remain in Ligue 2 so they can consolidate and remove any doubt about their future. But, that is a tough road to travel at the moment as they are in the relegation zone with little time to spare. Antoine Gauthier is injured and won’t be able to play.

Annecy

Annecy FC, as we know it today, was formed in 1993 after decades of turmoil. They spent the majority of their existence in lower divisions and last year finally won promotion to Ligue 2. They are doing surprisingly well this season by having a triple 7 at the moment when it comes to wins, draws, and losses. They are only eight points away from the second spot in the rankings. Annecy has some serious availability issues for the trip to St. Etienne: Alexandre Phiponeau, Madyen El Jaouhari, Jean-Jacques Rocchi, Romain Spano, and Steve Shamal are out through injury while Bissenty Mendy is suspended.
