Saint-Etienne v Metz – Over 2.5 Goals – 2.00

Eibar v Sevilla – Sevilla Win – 2.20
Sevilla suffered their first defeat of the season by the hands of Real Madrid on Sunday. Before that, they were undefeated.

For the hosts, they have drawn two and lost three of their five league games this term. Sevilla have also beaten them three times in the last four meetings. This is not an ideal game for Eibar to find some form and in their current circumstances, victory over Sevilla might be a step too far.
