St. Etienne vs. PSG Match Analysis and Prediction

Mauricio Pochetinno kickstarts his new era in charge of PSG this week in Ligue 1 as the side travels to St. Etienne. The match schedules for Wednesday at Stade Geoffroy Guichard with kickoff at 11 pm.

It is a different case for the hosts, currently on a six unbeaten streak in Ligue 1 but remains six points from the relegation zone. PSG is coming on the back end of a 4-0 win against Strasbourg.

Claude Puel’s side elicits fans’ different reactions, with other content while others riled up with their winning record this season. A 2-2 draw to Monaco ended their 2020 year while stretching the Les Vert’s unbeaten run in Ligue 1 to six matches. However, five of these games have ended in sharing spoils, including a 0-0 draw and 2-2 one to basement sides Dijon and Nimes, respectively.

Even given their 2-1 win over Bordeaux, their position on the table remains volatile, especially heading into the season’s midway point. A win this Wednesday will not raise the club higher the table, but a defeat will open doors for Reims and Nantes to edge closer.

A 4-0 thrashing of Strasbourg was not enough to save Thomas Tuchel’s job. Pochettino had been out of management since his sacking in November 2019. The Argentine with 95 appearances for PSG remains with a mammoth task ahead of him.
