AS Saint Etienne play host to the newly crowned Ligue 1 champions, Lille OSC this weekend on 21st August. Lille goes into the match as favourites not just because they are the current champions, but also because they have won three of their last five matches between the two teams.

Saint Etienne finished in the bottom half of the table last season, closer to the relegation zone than the top six. Claude Puel would have his work cut out if he wishes to not repeat the underwhelming results of last season.

Les Verts have not conducted any significant transfers, other than a few departures of squad players on free transfers. Whether this will stay the same once the transfer deadline is around, is yet to be seen, but it might seem that way. They haven’t shown any concrete interest in signing someone yet.

Lille OSC might have been crowned champions a few months ago, but they have lost a significant part of that title-winning side, including their manager. The French League has been in a financial crisis, which has resulted in players being sold to maintain the club’s financial stability. They have lost Boubakary Soumare, Mike Maignan, Luiz Araujo and their manager, Christoph Gaultier.

You can watch the match at 19:00 GMT on 21st August on your chosen and preferred streaming platform and enjoy the match from anywhere on your streaming device.
