Rennes to Pinch Win Against Out of Form Saint-Etienne
Rennes and Saint-Etienne were knocked out of the Coupe de France in midweek and now their attention moves back to Ligue 1. Rennes are flying high in 5th spot heading into this weekend’s clash, while Saint-Etienne sit in the bottom half of the table.
The hosts have performed well against their guests in recent seasons, winning four of the pair’s last five encounters in all competitions. When the two sides locked horns in September for their reverse league fixture, Rennes secured a comfortable 3-0 away win.
Neither of these two sides can claim to be in good form right now, with Rennes winning one, drawing three and losing two of their last six matches and Saint-Etienne losing three, drawing one and winning two of their last six outings. Under 2.5 goals have been scored in three of Rennes’ last four matches and in five of Saint-Etienne’s last six games, which points towards Sunday’s game being low-scoring as well.
We’re confident that Rennes will win on Sunday and have predicted a final scoreline of 1-0 in their favour. The hosts enjoy playing against Saint-Etienne and have outperformed their guests in all departments so far this season. This game looks set to be tight and tense throughout, but Rennes are best placed to secure all 3pts.
