St. Etienne vs Wolfsburg Today’s Betting Tips
After a little less than two months of competition, Saint-Etienne is already immersed in the crisis. Indeed, the Greens are making their worst start to the season since their comeback in Ligue 1 in 2006. After winning their first win of the season against Dijon during the first day (1-2), the St Etienne have won none of their 7 games and remained on three consecutive losses conceded against La Gantoise (3-2) during the first day of the Europa League precisely, Angers (4-1) and Metz (0-1) before moving to Nimes this week-end. At Costières, the Greens have returned to success by winning in pain (0-1). Despite this success, AS Saint-Etienne remains relegated to 19th place in the Ligue 1 standings.
Opposite, Wolfsburg is undefeated since the beginning of the season, in all competitions. First, the Wolves won their first two league games against Cologne (2-1) and Hertha Berlin (0-3). But since then, they have followed with three draws against Paderborn (1-1), Fortuna Düsseldorf (1-1) and Hoffenheim (1-1). On Saturday, they found success against a rather weak team Mainz (0-1) which allowed them to climb to the 7th place Bundesglia. In the Europa League, the partners of former Stéphanois Joshua Guilavogui dominated the Ukrainians from Oleksandria (3-1).
