Odds: 15/8 @ Bet 365

Two sides looking to carry on their recent run of form, Nantes will travel to St Etienne on Friday night.

Starting with the hosts, after enjoying a bright start to the season under Jean-Louis Gasset, Saint Etienne will have their sights set on securing European football for the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard. While they are coming off the back of a 1-0 loss away to Lyon last weekend, a result that ended their four-match unbeaten run, Saint Etienne find themselves sat sixth in the table and just three points adrift of the Champions League positions. While they’re enjoying a bright start to the season, Gasset will be looking to improve on their recent defensive record. They have now recorded just two clean sheets since the start of September.

As for the visitors, much like the hosts, Nantes are also enjoying a very eye-catching start to the season. Now unbeaten in their last six, they will also have one eye on securing a surprise European push. Much of their success this season has come thanks to the red-hot start to the season from forward Emiliano Sala, heacily linked with a move to the Premier League in January, the 28-year-old sits only behind Kylian Mbappe in the Ligue 1 goalscoring charts. With 11 goals already this season, the Nantes forward has scored eight in his last six and is averging a goal every 85 minuets.
