Jean-Louis Gasset's side have only taken seven points from their last seven league games and they look worth opposing once more this weekend.
The visitors are flying of late. They've won six and drawn two of their previous eight Ligue 1 matches, taking only one point fewer than runaway leaders Paris Saint-Germain in that time.
888Sport are 19/10 (2.90) about an away win at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard and that looks a good option for punters to consider. The draw is a 23/10 (3.30) shot but the underdogs appear to offer some value at the current prices.
Christophe Galtier's men have the second-best away record in France's top-flight this term and look very capable of coming out on top here too.
The home side have regularly come up short against the division's best teams, both in front of their own fans and away. Of the seven games that Saint-Etienne have played against the teams currently ranked above them, Sunday's hosts have lost six.
That form includes a 3-1 defeat in the reverse fixture and while Lille won't have home advantage this time around, their recent purple patch makes them an attractive underdog to back at 19/10 (2.90) with 888Sport.
The visitors’ impressive form is partly built on a defence that has conceded just four times in eight league games this calendar year. Opposing goals could be another way to go here but the under 2.5 line is just 10/13 (1.77).
Instead, take a chance on Lille to continue their red-hot run and come out on top against a Saint-Etienne side that have stumbled badly in recent weeks and have a woeful record when facing the best teams in the division.
