The Lyon vs. St. Etienne match will be played on Friday, at the Groupama Stadium, Lyon. Lyon is currently 4th on the table with 24 points, while Saint Etienne is 5th on the table with 23 points at the moment. This is the first match of Ligue 1 round 14.


  • Lyon is undefeated in their last six matches in all competitions. Last time they were beaten in October against PSG and the result was 5:0! In their last five matches both Lyon and their opponents scored at least one goal.
  • Saint Etienne is currently in a series of four matches without a defeat in the league. They won the last two matches they played, but they were hosts in both occasions. Saint Etienne didn't win in their last two visiting games in the league.


In their previous ten meetings, Lyon recorded four victories, Saint Etienne had four wins as well, while two matches ended in a draw. In four out of their last five matches we saw under 2.5 goals. Also, in five out of their last six games at least one team failed to score.


Lyon is happy with their start of the season. However, they are currently focused on Champions League, and they have a really nice chance to qualify for the knockout round. They are currently second on the table, with three points behind Manchester City and three points in front of Hoffenheim. On the other hand, their game against Saint Etienne is very important as well. If they win, they will create a solid gap between them and one of their biggest opponents in the fight for the top three.

Saint Etienne was struggling in October, but it seems they found their good form again. They have a slightly easier schedule in the upcoming weeks and they might take advantage of that.
