St Etienne vs Gent – Prediction (Europa League – 28.11.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

St Etienne’s 2-3 defeat against Gent on MD1 was their first ever loss against Belgian opponents (W1 D2 L1).

St Étienne enter this match unbeaten in their last 14 UEFA Europa League (UEL) and UEFA Cup group stage home fixtures (W4, D10). ‘Les Verts’ can kick-off with a healthy degree of confidence, given that they have conceded an average of just 0.5 goals per fixture across their last eight UEL home games. Even more encouragement will come from the fact St Étienne’s last UEL campaign (2016/17) saw them go unbeaten during the group stage (W3, D3). On the domestic front, Ghislain Printant’s men come into this one unbeaten in their last seven Ligue 1 (L1) fixtures (W5, D2) and significantly, each of their five wins across that period were settled by a one-goal margin.

Overall, Gent have a great away record in this tournament, going unbeaten in their last four UEL fixtures on hostile turf (W1, D3), although they are yet to keep a clean sheet this UEL group stage campaign. Furthermore, the visitors can take confidence from the fact they have failed to score in just one of their last 11 UEL away fixtures. When bringing domestic form into consideration, Gent travel here having won just one of their eight domestic league road trips this term (D4, L3), despite scoring first in four (W1, D1, L2 when doing so).

Players to watch: Wahbi Khazri (STE) has netted his two UEL goals before the break, including one in the reverse fixture. Roman Yaremchuk (GEN) has scored his team’s equaliser in each of his two goalscoring UEL group stage games to date.

Stat attack: St Étienne’s last seven UEL fixtures have produced at least one goal in the opening half-hour. Each of Gent’s last five UEL away games have seen both teams score. If excluding qualifiers, each of Gent’s last three UEL away draws have seen both halves witness an equal number of goals.
