Team News

  • Saint-Etienne have very little injury concerns with only Max-Alain Gradel unavailable through injury.
  • However, Fabien Lemoine will also miss out as he is suspended.
  • Nice will once again be without top scorer Dario Cvitanich due to a thigh problem, while Xavier Pentecote is out with a knee injury.
  • Jeremy Pied, Romain Genevois and Mahmane Traore are all out with hamstring problems.
  • Moussa M'Bow and Diacko Fofana both have knee problems while Cyril Hennion is out due to a groin injury.

Prediction

  • Two sides pushing for a surprise berth in the Champions League will face-off when Saint-Etienne welcome Nice to the Stade Geoffroy Guichard.
  • Both teams have been in magnificent form in recent weeks and once again earned victories last weekend against Reims and Nancy respectively.
  • The visitors are beset by injuries but that hasn't stopped them from staking a claim for a place in the top three, and sit just one point shy of Marseille. Saint-Etienne are a point further back, but at home and with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in fine form Les Verts will likely go into the game as favourites.
  • Nice do not concede too many goals and although both sides have plenty of options going forward this one may come down to a single goal.
