Big-spending Paris St Germain will be firm favourites to win almost every game in Ligue 1 this season but we think St Etienne deserve more respect than they have been given by the bookmakers.
Both teams have made perfect starts to the season by winning their opening three matches and St Etienne are no mugs, having also not yet conceded.
The visitors can cause last season’s runners-up a few problems and are unlikely to be on the receiving end of a thrashing so the first of our PSG vs St Etienne betting predictions is PSG to win 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 at odds of 16/5.
A Look At PSG’s Betting Odds
World-record signing Neymar has made a quick impression in the French capital with three goals in his first two appearances and PSG are already top of the table.
They thrashed Toulouse 6-2 last week and Neymar has warned opponents there is more to come, telling Canal+: “I feel happy at PSG, it’s like home. Now I want to adapt quicker, get better in the physical aspect – I think I can improve.”
His three goals have been matched by Edinson Cavani, though, and with the Uruguay striker on penalty-taking duties, he is fancied to be the man to open the scoring.
We’re going for a speculative 16/1 punt on Cavani to score first and PSG to win 3-1 at 16/1.
A Look At St Etienne’s Betting Odds
St Etienne secured a surprise 1-0 win at home to Nice on the opening weekend and followed it up with victories at Caen (1-0) and at home to Amiens (3-0) to suggest it was no fluke.
They will head to the capital full of confidence, having also drawn 1-1 here last season, and Toulouse showed that PSG can still be vulnerable at the back despite all their firepower up front.
We’re not convinced St Etienne have the quality to cause an upset but PSG to win and both teams to score looks good value at 13/10.
PSG 6-2 Toulouse – Neymar (2), Adrien Rabiot, Edinson Cavani (pen), Javier Pastore, Layvin Kurzawa
ST ETIENNE 3-0 Amiens – Jonathan Bamba, Bryan Dabo (2)
Head-to-head: St Etienne 0-5 PSG, PSG 1-1 St Etienne, St Etienne 1-3 PSG, St Etienne 0-2 PSG, PSG 1-0 St Etienne, PSG 4-1 St Etienne.
