Tobias Gourlay's hoping for some defensive clangers as Angers head to St Etienne tonight
"Backing both teams to score has been the right thing to do in 9/14 in St Etienne"
St Etienne v Angers
Friday 20:00 (Live on BT Sport 3)
In Spain last night, Sociedad B made it 1-1 in Almeria after just 20 minutes and we had ourselves an early winner. The hosts bounced back to win 3-1 and we're bouncing across the border into France today.
St Etienne are bottom of Ligue 1 but a trip to Stade Geoffroy-Guichard may not be a gimme for fifth-placed Angers tonight.
Claude Puel's hosts are winless in five on home turf this term. However, the Saints have scored in 4/5 - and in 11 of their last 14 going back into last term. Backing both teams to score has been the right thing to do in 9/14 - and 4/5 this term.
Gerald Baticle's visitors are an even W1-D3-L1 on the road. The only defeat came last time out at PSG. However, Angers have conceded in all of the last four - and BTTS has been the right bet in all four. With this season's trends on both sides pointing to BTTS, that's our bet of the day.
