Short on goals in the 2013 premiere of Ligue 1
St. Etienne hosts Toulouse in the first Ligue 1 match of 2013.
St. Etienne ended 2012 in awful fashion, not capturing any win in their last five games(0-2-3) but whats even more interesting is that St. Etienne, didnt score once during these five games, and every game ended under 2.5 goals. This has resultet in St. Etienne dropping to a dissapointing 10th place and they will look for any opportunity to get their hands on their first victory in six games. But I dont believe that this will force St. Etienne to attack from the get go, I expect a nervous and intense affair, that could come down to a single goal comming late in the second half.
St. Etienne takes on 12th placed Toulouse, which is also a team that's having problems with bad form and scoring goals,(1-1-3) their only win comming against a poor Sochaux team. Also for Toulouse their last 5 games has gone under 2.5 goals, and i expect both teams to continue that streak.
My other predictions for this match:
Correct score: 1-0
Under 0.5 goals first half.
