Saint-Etienne-PSG Betting Preview: Expect plenty of goals at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard

Les Parisiens are in irresistible form thanks to the goalscoring exploits of their high profile strike force, and Al Hain-Cole expects them to provide plenty of goalmouth action
Paris Saint Germain will be hoping to extend their unbeaten start to the season when they travel to the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard to face St-Etienne on Sunday.

Laurent Blanc’s men have gone 29 competitive games since last tasting defeat and are clear 3/4 (1.75) favourites with Betway to pick up a seventh consecutive win in this one.

The hosts ended a run of four games without a win when they overcame struggling Lorient last weekend but are outsiders at 7/2 (4.50) to come out on top against the champions.

Four of the last five meetings between these sides have ended in a draw on this ground, and you can get odds of 5/2 (3.50) on them cancelling each other out once again in this one.

After seeing fellow big-spenders Monaco splash out €60 million to bring Radamel Falcao in the summer, les Parisiens responded by breaking the French transfer record once again with the signing of Edinson Cavani.

While the Uruguayan has already started repaying the hefty transfer fee with six goals in 10 league games, his arrival seems to also have had a positive impact in inspiring last season’s top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic to reach even greater heights.

The Swede was the star of this week’s Champions League action as he scored four of his side’s goals in the 5-0 win over Anderlecht, having also struck twice in last weekend’s 4-0 league victory against Bastia, with the remaining three goals in those two fixtures coming courtesy of Cavani.

This formidable strike partnership is increasingly proving enough to worry even Ligue Un’s meanest defences, meaning les Verts should be terrified considering they have conceded twice in each of their last five games.

With so much attacking talent on display, odds of 9/10 (1.90) seem exceedingly generous on over 2.5 goals going in on Sunday, in a bet that would have paid out in each of Saint-Etienne’s last six games, as well as PSG’s last four fixtures.
