Ligue 1 Betting: Back Lens and Lyon to secure away-day triumphs

Sorry St Etienne to struggle again
St Etienne will be below-strength this weekend. No.1 goalkeeper Etienne Green is ruled out, as is striker Wahbi Khazri, on duty for Tunisia at the African Nations Cup. Easily their most dangerous player this season, Khazri has scored seven (41%) of St Etienne's meagre tally of 17 league goals.

Lucas Paqueta scored Lyon's goal against PSG last weekend, and continues to prove he's one of Ligue 1's best players. Fellow Brazil international Bruno Guimaraes supplied the assist, displaying the vision and technique that has reportedly made him a target for Arsenal during the current transfer window.
