Nice and Saint-Etienne set for a close encounter

On Friday night, Nice and Saint-Etienne clash in Ligue One, as both teams attempt to push into the European spots in the French top-flight.

Saint-Etienne are currently sixth place in the table, but a win would move them up to fourth-place. Nice are just one place behind the visitors and would move level on points with fourth-place Lyon with a victory in this encounter.

OGC Nice are enjoying a good run of form in Ligue One of late, as the home side are six games unbeaten in the French top-flight, having recorded three wins and three draws.

However, their recent league matches have been tight, low scoring affairs, with under 2.5 goals scored in their last eight matches. A big factor in those recent low scoring games has been Nice’s solid defensive displays, as the home side has kept clean sheets in their last six Ligue One outings.

Nice are now unbeaten in three home games in Ligue One, having recorded two wins and a draw. They have also kept clean sheets in their last three league games at the Allianz Riviera.

Saint-Etienne are enjoying a solid season in Ligue One and a win could move the Greens into the Champions League play-off spot.

The visitor's form has actually dipped slightly of late, as they have won just three of their last eight league matches. They have now lost two of their last three league matches in the French top-flight, including last time out in a 3-2 defeat at Bordeaux.

Jean-Louis Gasset’s side has been prolific of late in Ligue One of late, despite their recent inconsistent form, scoring at least two goals in four of their last five league matches.

With little to choose between these two teams, is not a major surprise that Forebet is predicting this game will finish in a low scoring draw.
