Paris Saint-Germain will have to rotate their squad as they play three times inside nine days after their clash with Saint-Etienne tonight.
What are we expecting from the match and what bets are we placing on betPawa?
Without a clean sheet in six competitive matches, St Étienne is not immune to the occasional defensive collapse. However, they are a potent force when fighting on familiar territory, and stood as the second-highest scorers in the five-game home form table (W4, L1) after beating Strasbourg 2-1 (Feb 13).PSG fell to their first defeat of the season last time out at Lyon, but confidence should be restored after they won at Old Trafford in the Champions League. That being said, PSG's away form remains formidable - they have scored in each of their last ten Ligue 1 road trips, opened the scoring on seven occasions, and gone on to take a decent 16 points from a possible 21 after doing so. Across all competitions, five of St Étienne’s last six matches have seen both teams score and we can see that happening here.
Saint-Etienne's January signing Valentin Vada is out. Ex-Arsenal man Mathieu Debuchy is set to be recalled. Key PSG attackers Edinson Cavani and Neymar are still out for the champions and Thomas Meunier is still not set for a recall at right-back after a concussion, so young German Thilo Kehrer will continue in defense and Dani Alves could come in at right back in a reshaped back four. PSG is likely to rotate heavily with a busy schedule ahead of them before their second leg Champions League round of 16 clash with Man United.
- Since re-entering the top flight in 2004, St Étienne has lost both halves in only one of 14 home league games against PSG.
- Across all competitions, five of St Étienne’s last six matches have seen both teams score.
- Wahbi Khazri has 12 goals in 21 Ligue 1 appearances this season.
- Kylian Mbappe has 18 goals in 13 Ligue 1 starts this season.
With both teams to score priced at 1.66 and PSG priced at 1.46, there's value in backing both of those outcomes.
