Nice vs St Etienne France – Ligue 1 Date: Wednesday, 11 May 2022 Kick-off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET Venue: Allianz Riviera.
Needing just 5 more points to escape the drop zone, St Etienne will be taking a road trip to Nice this Wednesday. These two sides will go h2h at Allianz Riviera for the Round 36 of Ligue 1.
Nice is at the 6th spot on the standing with 60 points from 35 games. They won 18 times in the league while drew on 7 and lost on 10 other occasions. The hosts are level on points with Strasbourg after reducing a point due to Federation decision. They will be aiming to climb into the top 5 and for a particular European spot.
Nice will be hoping for a better result after the 1-0 Coupe De France defeat last time out to Nantes. A recurring theme in their most recent games is the number of nil scores. From their previous 6 clashes before this one, in 5 of them a wager on both teams scoring would’ve been a loss.
On the other hand, St Etienne resides at the 18th position on the table with a mere 31 points. Of the 35 matches played, they won 7 times in the league while drawing on 10 and losing on 18 other occasions. Their struggles at the defensive end of the pitch has also been another key factor as they have conceded 70 goals so far.
St Etienne won’t want a repeat of their last result here after a 2-0 league losing effort in their last game against Rennes. It’s possible we will see a couple of goals here, with the last 7 games for them ended with 2 goals or more being scored. Having lost the last 2 games, they need an urgent win here to escape the red zone.
