Lille vs. St. Etienne tip, forecast & amp; Odds 28.08.2019 - Ligue 1
FC Bayern Munich actually fulfilled Renato Sanches' change request - and that with a hefty transfer loss of just under 15 million euros. The Portuguese had missed the breakthrough with the German record champions and is now continuing his adventure with the French first division club LOSC Lille.
The "mastiffs" from Lille were in dire need of a transfer like that of Sanches, because in the recent games the departure of offensive jewel Nicolas Pépé has been very noticeable. After an opening win over Nantes, the bitter 0-1 defeat at Amiens followed. During the week there is a real craze in Ligue 1: LOSC Lille welcomes AS Saint-Etienne at home!
Lille is slightly favored against St. Etienne according to odds, which should not come as a surprise after the strong home record from last year. The "mastiffs" were the second strongest home team of Ligue 1 after PSG. It remains to be seen whether Christophe Galtier's team will be able to pick up on the strong season before, especially since the double burden of the Champions League is also imminent.
In any case, it is not yet clear how LOSC Lille will present itself in the premier class. After a few departures in the squad, the performances by the "mastiffs" were manageable. The endurance test against Saint-Etienne will now show at what level LOSC Lille is currently.
For the first time since the 2010/11 season, LOSC Lille was up there again. The runner-up almost felt like a real championship when you consider that a team like PSG is in pole position. The "mastiffs" were able to stir up Ligue 1 well and presented themselves in a strong condition throughout the season.

The team of Christophe Galtier shone especially at home. Behind PSG, LOSC Lille was the strongest team in the league at home, scoring 43 points. If the Galtier team continues in the new season, the top game between Lille vs. St. Etienne a prognosis for the "mastiffs" is obvious. Galtier was a coach at St. Etienne for just over seven years.
So far, Lille have had a home win and an away defeat in the first two Ligue 1 games. The recent defeat can be attributed, among other things, to the dismissal, by which the "mastiffs" were significantly affected.
With players like Mendes, Leao and Pepe, LOSC Lille lost key performers in the summer. In addition to the recent transfer from Renato Sanches, the "mastiffs" were able to strengthen themselves well with players like Yazici, Osimhen and Weah. Lille seems to have had a stroke of luck, especially with Osimhen. The newcomer hit twice in his competitive debut for the "Great Danes".
In addition to the suspended Boubakary Soumaré, Lille will also have to do without the injured Xeka, Soumaoro, Gabriel and Agouzoul. According to the strong ideas last season in front of our home crowd, we would definitely risk a tip on lucrative odds on the home side at Lille against St. Etienne.
The "Les Verts" from Saint-Etienne, unlike LOSC Lille, remained undefeated in the first two Ligue 1 games. After an opening win at Dijon, a surprising home draw followed. Under Ghislain Printant, who previously worked as an assistant alongside ex-coach Gasset, St. Etienne wants to find his way back into the top third of the table.
Last season St. Etienne took fourth place in the table and was able to defend the starting position for the Europa League. Before the group stage of the Europa League starts, the team can fully focus on the national competition. Like LOSC Lille, "Les Verts" benefited from their home strength in the last season.
In other countries, the achievements were partly mixed. St. Etienne recently remained unbeaten in six away games (cross-season). Overall, there was an away record of 6-7-6 last season. At the season opener in Dijon, St. Etienne went full speed with two early goals, but remained harmless for long stretches of the game. In the end, it was a 2-1 success.
The Printant team wants to prove itself at home-strong "mastiffs". The Champions League participant certainly has more individual quality in the squad, but in contrast to the "mastiffs" St. Etienne was able to keep the top performers as far as possible. Defensive jewel William Saliba was sold, but continues to play for St. Etienne on loan.
The "Les Verts" did not show exceptionally strong performances in the first two league games, which is why the fairly balanced odds are surprising. With Aholou, Fofana, Saliba, Silva and Monnet-Paquet, five important players are missing in Lille. Even the minimal point gain will be difficult for the guests to reach, which is why we would almost rule out a prediction of an away win at Lille against St. Etienne.
LOSC Lille and St. Etienne will meet for the 116th time. The guests lead the direct comparison. On average, 3.16 goals per game were scored in the duels between Lille and St. Etienne. It remains to be seen whether a bet on over 2.5 goals will pay off this time. Last season the "mastiffs" from Lille celebrated a 3-1 win at home and a 1-0 win in St. Etienne.
Since December 2013, LOSC Lille has not lost a competitive game against St. Etienne at home. Four of the last six home games have been won against St. Etienne. The guests were able to score at least in the last three away games in Lille.
After the small change in summer, the "mastiffs" can not really be assessed. The extent to which the newcomers can compensate for the bitter departures from Pepe, Leao and Mendes will be shown at the latest in the premier class. With the current line-up, Lille will continue to be a contender for the CL starting positions.
At St. Etienne, however, a solid season can be expected again. The stable team structure will be a decisive factor. Although the major reinforcements failed to materialize in the summer, St. Etienne will certainly be back in the top third of the table with the current squad.
To make it an international starting place again, St. Etienne will also have to score in the top games. "Les Verts" in Lille is expecting a very difficult task away, especially since the home side were the second strongest home team in the league last season. We decide in the duel between Lille and St. Etienne for a tip on lucrative betting odds on the home win. With a quotation of 2.25 at the top, we choose to use seven units.
