St Etienne vs Wolfsburg Betting Tips


St Etienne have had a rough start to the season will be happy to get back to the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard. St Etienne are unbeaten in their last 11 home matches in the UEFA Europa League, drawing four of their last six and I think another is on the cards against Wolfsburg.

AS Saint-Étienne Form & Team News


Saint-Etienne have had a poor start to the season under new manager Ghislain Printant. The proud French club are currently in the relegation zone in Ligue 1 despite winning their last match.

The 1-0 victory at Nimes was long overdue with Mathieu Debuchy assisted by Wahbi Khazri for the winner. Romain Hamouma was sent off in the 74th minute but Saint-Etienne held on for their second win of the season.

Goalkeeper Jessy Moulin was man of the match, making eight saves as Nimes had 23-6 shots and 65% possession. His form is welcome with first choice keeper Stéphane Ruffier out with a broken finger. 

St Etienne had lost three straight matches previously including a 3-2 defeat at Gent to start their Europa League campaign.  

Central defender Harold Moukoudi returned from suspension in Nimes and forms a strong partnership with the experienced Loic Perrin. Denis Bouanga and Arnaud Nordin could be under pressure from Ryad Boudebouz and Zaydou Youssouf.

Printant has to start picking up points and the former Bastia boss will welcome a return home. St Etienne are unbeaten in their last 11 home matches in the Europa League with four of their last six ending in a draw, a result that can be backed at 3.20 with St Etienne priced at 2.87 to win.

VfL Wolfsburg Form & Team News


Wolfsburg are still unbeaten under new manager Oliver Glasner. The Wolves advanced in the German Cup, are unbeaten in six Bundesliga matches and beat Oleksandria 3-1 in their opening UEFA Europa League match.

Their last match resulted in a 1-0 win in Mainz. Marcel Tisserand scored the winner in the 9th minute and Wolfsburg held on under pressure, taking just four shots during the game.

Striker Wout Weghorst took two of those and continues to be the main man up front. Weghorst had been in involved in a goal or assist in Wolfsburg’s first seven matches before failing for the first time in Mainz.

Admir Mehmedi and Josip Brekalo should continue in support but Glasner made a small switch that could make a big impact. Joshua Guilavogui started in central midfield with Jeffrey Bruma taking his spot in central defence.

Goalkeeper Koen Casteels, defender John Anthony Brooks, midfielders Ignacio Camacho, Xaver Schlager and attacker Daniel Ginczek continue to be out injured for Glasner’s side.

Wolfsburg are currently favourites at bet365, priced at 2.50 to win. Wolfsburg have drawn three of their last four Bundesliga matches and two of their last three away matches in the Europa League a result that can be backed at 3.20.

St Etienne vs Wolfsburg Head to Head

St Etienne vs Wolfsburg Betting Odds


Bookmakers bet365 have found it hard to split this one, St Etienne are slight outsiders at 2.87 with Wolfsburg 2.50 to win and a draw paying 3.20. Wolfsburg’s last six draws in all competitions have been 1-1, which is my tip in the correct score market at 6.00.

St Etienne vs Wolfsburg Match Up


St Etienne have proved hard to beat at home in Europe. Despite their poor form, a clean sheet and three points in Nimes will inspire confidence before the visit of Wolfsburg.

Wolfsburg haven’t lost this season but have seen plenty of draws. The 1-0 win in Mainz should have been another and I don’t think they can be trusted on the road.
