Lyon vs Saint Etienne
Friday 21 January, 20:00
The return to wins put Lyon in 11th place before their match against St Etienne. Lyon had gone five Ligue 1 matches without a win before their 0-1 win at Troyes last week.
The fact remains, Peter Bosz’s team accumulated four consecutive draws prior to winning at Troyes, thus the Dutchman has collected 29 points from 20 matches.
Lyon are stuck in mid-table but they have taken four points from two games this year, including a 1-1 draw at home to Paris St-Germain.
Despite losing only once at home in Ligue 1 this season (4-5-1), Lyon have drawn five of their 10 home matches, with a leaky defense that has recorded just one clean sheet.
St Etienne are rooted to the bottom of the Ligue 1 table and are looking to end a run of six consecutive defeats.
Their new manager Pascal Dupraz is still waiting for his first league win as Les Verts manager after last weekend’s 2-1 defeat to Lens extended their poor run.
The Greens sit bottom of the league with just 12 points from 20 games, and they must begin picking up results as soon as possible if they are to avoid relegation for the first time in nearly two decades.
Saint-Etienne has had one league game without conceding a goal away from home.
