Saint-Étienne vs Olympique Lyonnais tips Chris T-Barcks
St Etienne are third in Ligue 1 and that would be good enough to get them into the Champions League next season. Their high league position is due to their impressive home record, which is only bettered by leaders PSG. Ten home league games have seen them win eight and draw two with only seven goals conceded. Wednesday saw them get a late win at home to Marseille, their third league win in a row. That made it seven home wins from their last eight games with three clean sheets in the last four. They are a place and two points ahead of their opponents who have lost ground in recent weeks with three successive draws. It could have been worse as they were 2-0 down at Toulouse on Wednesday night before pulling level with three minutes remaining. They also had to come from behind to get a point at home to Reims. Lyon have only won one of their last six league games and that was against one-from-bottom Monaco; Away form has seen them win only three of their nine away league games with defeats at Reims and a 5-0 hammering at PSG. St Etienne have the momentum at present and can get another home win to strengthen their Champions League qualification hopes.

Match à fort enjeu entre les ennemis stéphanois et lyonnais. Respectivement 3ème et 4ème du classement, à seulement 1 point d'écart, ils vont s'affronter pour continuer à rêver d'Europe. Saint-Étienne, qui est sur une période idyllique, ne compte pas s'arrêter en si bon chemin. En face, les Lyonnais sont en grande peine en championnat. Sans victoire depuis 3 matchs, Lyon n'a plus le choix et doit se reprendre absolument. Le Chaudron promet d'être bouillant et pourrait bien porter son équipe vers une nouvelle victoire qui pourrait faire tomber Lyon dans un début de crise.
