St Etienne vs Laval – Predictions, Odds, & Best Betting Tips

St Etienne finally jumped away from a run of three consecutive losses by getting a 1-1 draw with Caen. It is Laval who are in a serious trouble coming into the game after a 3-0 loss against Amiens.

Three points for the home team

St Etienne might be at the bottom of the table but they find they have an opportunity to get some crucial wins under their belt. Three out of the next five league matches for St Etienne will be at home. The club’s last victory in the league was back in October, but Laval have been in terrible shape coming into the game. After conceding eight goals in the last two league outings, Laval are in danger of being sucked into the relegation once again.

Total goals under 2.5

There have been over 2.5 goals in the last two matches for the Laval even without the team even scoring a goal. At the same time, just two of the last five league games for St Etienne have gone to over 2.5 goals. It would not be a big surprise if the upcoming matches also ends with a decent amount of goals.

Both teams to score – yes

One of the big problems of St Etienne so far this season has been a defence that has been shredded apart on many occasions. While St Etienne have conceded over 30 goals already, the visitors are not far ahead on this front with 29 goals.
