With the Ligue 1 season approaching the halfway mark, AS Saint-Étienne need a win to keep their Europe hopes alive as they face 10th-place Nantes.

As the French Ligue 1 2018/2019 season closes in on the halfway mark, with a Friday game opening Round 15, AS Saint-Étienne likely need a win to keep their chances at a return to European football from slipping away. The Greens now sit at sixth place on the table, per Sky Sports, three points off a European qualifying slot. But on the other side of the ball, eight-time title winners FC Nantes come into the match hoping to maintain the momentum, momentum that seems to have dissipated after they followed a three-match, season-saving win streak with a pair of draws.

In the United Kingdom, the live stream gets underway at 7:45 p.m. Greenwich Mean Time, while in the United States, that start time will be 2:45 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, 11:45 p.m. Pacific.

“It is an exciting challenge, if FC Nantes want to have a good season and have more ambition, it must be shown in Saint-Etienne,” recently-hired Coach Vahid Halilhodžić, who has led the team to a 3-0-2 record since taking over in October, said of the showdown with Saint-Étienne. “They are the stronger team and in front of us in the standings. So now is the time to be confident and go for the win.”

Saint-Étienne, however, have revealed a tendency to give up the back of the net, allowing 18 past the keeper 14 games. This could make them vulnerable to a Nantes attack that features Argentine No. 9 Emiliano Sala (pictured below), whose 11 goals in 13 league matches, per Transfer Market, puts him level with PSG teen sensation Kylian Mbappé for the Ligue 1 lead.
