Lille vs Saint-Etienne Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Lille and Saint-Etienne are set to produce an open contest in their French Ligue 1 clash at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy. Both teams are known for their exciting attacks and are tipped to produce BTTS and a draw.

Lille OSC Form & Team News 


Lille are coming off a 1-0 defeat at Amiens last time out in Ligue 1. Christophe Galtier's men fell behind midway through the second half and could not find a way back into the contest despite dominating possession. 

Les Dogues have not made the best start to the season after one win and one defeat. They are priced at 2.20 by bookmakers to triumph on Wednesday but with no clean sheets in their last five matches across all competitions, I am tipping BTTS here.

Lille will be without midfielder Boubakary Soumare who is suspended following a red card at Amiens. Victor Osimhen scored a brace on his debut for the club and should feature in attack alongside Jonathan Bamba.

AS Saint-Etienne Form & Team News


Saint-Etienne were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Brest in their last Ligue 1 fixture. They fought back from a goal down with Denis Bouanga's effort seven minutes from time earning them a share of the spoils.

Les Verts have made a similar start to the season as Lille having also claimed just one win from two matches. They are valued at odds of 3.40 to win on Wednesday but have also struggled defensively with no clean sheets in their last eight matches.

Denis Bouanga appears to have settled down to life in Saint-Etienne following a summer move from Nimes. He is already off the mark and should start in attack alongside Wahbi Khazri, who was top scorer for the visitors last season. 

Lille vs Saint-Etienne Head to Head 


Lille have 21 wins and 13 draws while Saint-Etienne have claimed 11 victories from 45 previous matches. Four of the last six meetings between both teams have produced BTTS. 

Lille vs Saint-Etienne Match Up 


Victor Osimhen will be the one to watch for Lille having already scored two goals this season. With the pace and trickery of Jonathan Bamba in attack, the hosts should have too much for Saint-Etienne on Wednesday. 

Saint-Etienne also have quality of their own going forward with Denis Bouanga and Wahbi Khazri.  Both men appear to be forming a good understanding in attack and should combine well to trouble the hosts.
