In this match we offer to place a bet on the hosts. Saint-Etienne completely failed the start of a season and no one is expecting victories from the team now. Lens lost focus in recent matches and it affected their results. Saints also have big motivation and they are in a good mood after a victory in the French Cup.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (0) on Saint-Etienne
We think that the outcome of this game might be decided by a one single mistake. Opponents rarely score many goals and we are not expecting that from them today.
Our second bet is on total under 2,5 goals
