Our Prediction:

Wolfsburg will win

St Etienne – Wolfsburg Match Prediction | 03-10-2019 12:55

Les Verts recorded only one win in previous eight away games in the Ligue 1, but given the quality of Jean-Louis Gassets team, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. The Crocodiles did well to beat Strasbourg on the road in their last league game, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the Coupe de la Ligue clash. Nimes welcome Saint-Etienne at their Stade des Costieres in what is expected to be a very interesting game. A man to watch in the away team will be Tunisia attacker Wahbi Khazri, who has netted six goals in the French top flight so far this term. In their last meeting at Stade des Costieres in the Ligue 1 the two teams played out a 1-1 draw and seeing that Saint-Etienne are not regarded as good travelers, yet another close encounter is on the cards.

In the previous season, Hertha played defensively oriented home football. Bayern took the lead in the twenty-sixth minute but when players went for a well-deserved break, the result was 1-2. Robert Lewandowski equalized and the result changed no more 2-2. In the second part, Bayern increased pressure and after one mistake referee awarded a penalty to Bavarians. Hertha is undefeated in ten of their last twelve matches. Reigning champion, Bayern, was their opponent and everybody predicted an easy victory for Bavarians. Hertha is responsible for probably the biggest surprise in the first round.

Whenever Hertha plays in Berlin against Wolfsburg the match is tough. Everything implicates that we are going to witness a slugfest so my opinion is that draw with a small number of goals is quite possible. An important thing to remember is that Berliners score quite often in the first forty-five minutes. Those matches are known for a high number of yellow cards. Wolfsburg also scores most of the goals in the first half of the match. In the last six games, both teams recorded two victories and two draws. The last match won Wolfsburg 0-1. In the last five matches in all competitions including friendly matches, Hertha scored at least twice per match. In five of those six games, there were under 2.5 goals.

In the last minutes of the match, FC Koln managed to score the consolation goal for 2-1. The new manager decided to play more aggressively and that approach gave fantastic results. In the sixteenth minute of play, Wolfsburg took the lead. After exactly one hour of play, the result was 2-0. Before the match, Wolfsburg is given an advantage by bookmakers over FC Koln. Wolfsburg is playing good football since the last season but they had under average results as visitors. After prep matches, they improved so I expect an even match between these two sides.

Briancon made his senior debut for Nimes in Ligue 2 on May 16, 2014 against Creteil, coming as a substitute for Pierre Bouby in the 54th minute of the match. Born in Avignon, France on November 28, 1994, Anthony Brianco is a defender who is a product of Nimes youth academy. His main position is centre-back, but the French footballer is used as a defensive midfielder as well.

It has to be noted that the likes of Michel Platini, Jacques Santini, Laurent Blanc and Aime Jacquet all played for Saint Etienne in the past. Speaking of the clubs European success, Saint Etienne made it to the European Cup (Champions League) final in 1976, but Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich proved to be a big catch for the French outfit. Anyhow, that is regarded as the clubs biggest success.

Koln were the best away side in the second division and found the back of the net thirty-five times while conceding as little as twenty-one in the process. Considering that both sides have also been getting their names on the scoresheet in their last two games, a high scoring clash with over 2.5 goals on the scorecards is definitely looming large.
