Toulouse vs Saint-Etienne Predictions: Hard-Fought Contest Expected

16:00 Sunday 29 October 2017
Simon Harrison
  • Toulouse haven’t seen more than a one-goal margin between themselves and their opposition since February (Winning Margin of One Goal) — 5/4 Betway
  • There has been more than one goal in a league game here just once in the hosts’ last six outings (Under 2.5 Goals ) — 8/13 Sportingbet

Match Preview

The hosts have been making their own stadium into something of a fortress ahead of our Toulouse vs Saint-Etienne preview and free soccer odds, with Saint-Etienne having to pay a visit to the Stade Municipal that is rapidly becoming one of the tougher places to visit in Ligue 1 this season.

Toulouse have lost just one home match so far this season, against Bordeaux, with their defensive solidity proving to be one of their strong points. They’ve conceded in just two of their last four top-flight home contests so far.

Our Toulouse vs Saint-Etienne predictions revolve around this strong home form, with Saint-Etienne facing a tough test according to our Ligue 1 predictions. Their lack of firepower could be an issue on Sunday.

Against Caen and Dijon, the away side have managed to pick up narrow victories, but otherwise, they have been struggling on the road. A win is necessarily for Les Verts to stay in touch with the top four, but they’ve got a rather large stumbling block ahead of them.

Toulouse vs Saint-Etienne Prediction and Betting Advice

Toulouse haven’t experienced a margin of more than one goal between themselves and an opponent at home since February in Ligue 1, with the hosts having a knack for grinding results out and generally being a nuisance to play against on their own patch.

Betway offer the best, and some rare, value on there being a simple one-goal difference between the two sides at the final whistle this weekend. Just one of the Saint-Etienne’s last four away outings has ended differently, meaning that these two competitive sides should struggle to separate themselves.

Given that the visitors haven’t drawn in their last five away outings, with Toulouse not doing the same in their last four at home, it appears that the three points will go one way or the other. Our prediction is that there won’t be much in that whatsoever. All of the hosts’ last four Ligue 1 matches at Stadium Municipal have had one-goal margins of victory.

Our Toulouse vs Saint-Etienne bets also back this game to be quite a low-scoring affair. Not only should the difference between the two sides be small, but a 1-0 win looks more than likely. Sportingbet offer the best value on there being three goals or less in this contest, which has been the case in nine of Toulouse’s last 10 Ligue 1 home fixtures.

Saint-Etienne have picked up two 1-0 victories thus far on the road in the French top flight and even suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Montpellier at home last time out. These two teams can struggle for cutting edge, and those problems should be emphasised this weekend given that they both try and keep things tight.

Our Toulouse vs Saint-Etienne picks back a tight game on Sunday between the two sides that have started the season well. Home advantage could well prove to be the defining factor, but there won’t be too much in it between the two sides that may well have realistic aspirations to challenge for the top six.
