It will be a postponement with flakes, the one that will close the 18th day of Ligue 1. It's allo Stade Geoffroy-Guichard of Saint-Etienne that the challenge between S. Etienne-PSG.
The Saint-Etienne, who will play this delicate game at home, will have to try to win as many points as possible until the break to try to stay in the wake of the big names. The momentary eighth place, grabbed thanks to the 25 points won, leaves them only three points away from the third place in the standings occupied by Lille. The team of the French technician Claude Puel, at the mercy of the roller coaster, seeing the latest period fluctuations, he is back from a deserved 3-1 defeat remedied by Reims. The company will certainly not be the simplest but, at least, the technician will finally be able to count on his own squad after the many early-season injuries. Confidence renewed, despite the bad times, to the Tunisian playmaker Wahbi Khazri, the club's most talented player.
It is becoming increasingly difficult for us to find words to talk about Paris Saint-Germain. After the umpteenth seasonal victory achieved against Montpellier, fourth in a row in Ligue 1, Parisians are increasingly projected towards the conquest of the title. In addition to the positive results, the positive news, as well as confirmations, also come from the point of view of the technical agreement. In fact, the harmony between the three tenors occupying the offensive roles of the team is increasing. The last meeting saw them three in goal, with mutual exchange of assists. The numbers say: 7 goals and 4 assists in 10 games per Mbappe; 6 goals and 1 assist in 8 games per Neymar; 7 goals and 1 assist in 9 games per Icardi. Stratospheric numbers for stratospheric players. And we just talked about the performance in Ligue 1 alone.
Saint-Etienne – Paris Saint-Germain, the prediction:
The hosts, strong of a full stadium and of the motivations that everyone should have facing the leaders on nights like these, could use these fundamental factors to try to worry Tuchel's team. However, as we have already said, they will have a team composed of phenomena. The imparity is under everyone's eyes and the positive moment of its interpreters only increases the percentage of victory by the PSG. We therefore have no doubts in giving our forecast.
