Saint-Etienne vs Rennes Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Saint-Etienne will be aiming to extend their unbeaten streak in Ligue 1 to three games when they welcome Rennes at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard on Sunday at lunchtime. Saint-Etienne managed a narrow 0-1 victory on the road at Dijon on Saturday thanks to a second-half goal from Jonathan Bamba. On the other hand, Rennes lost 0-1 at home at the hands of Nice last time out in Ligue 1, with Christian Gourcuff’s men conceding the goal in the last ten minutes to go. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips - Match Odds

Saint-Etienne are the in-form team in this clash and they should be able to grab all three points in this one, particularly because they are playing in front of their own fans. Their home form in Ligue 1 over the past seven months have seen them lose just one of their last eight home league fixtures. In addition, Saint-Etienne are undefeated in three home league games this season, having conceded just once in this term. A victory for Saint-Etienne is priced at odds 21/20, which is a strong bet if we are taking into account their head-to-head home record over Rennes.

Saint-Etienne Preview

Saint-Etienne’s two-game winless streak in Ligue 1 ended last weekend as they managed to secure a narrow 0-1 victory on the road at Dijon. Overall, Saint-Etienne have been a strong side in this early part of the Ligue 1 campaign, having lost just at the hands of Paris Saint Germain in the opening six rounds. Les Verts currently sit third position in the league table with 13 points to their name after six rounds, two points behind the second-placed Monaco and five points adrift of the current leaders Paris Saint Germain. St. Etienne have been impressive at the back in this early part of the season, having kept a clean sheet in four of their six league games. Actually, they hold the second joint-best defensive record in the division with just four goals conceded in six rounds. Furthermore, Saint-Etienne can count on their home form ahead of this clash as they are unbeaten in three home league fixtures so far this season, conceding just once in the process. In addition, Les Verts are undefeated in their last seven home meetings with Rennes across all competitions, keeping five clean sheets in the process. The bad news is that Saint-Etienne have failed to beat Rennes both home and away last season, scoring just one goal in this term.

Saint-Etienne Team News

Gabriel Silva and Romain Hamouma are both doubts, but Florentin Pogba is still out through an ankle injury. In addition, Vincent Pajot is suspended for this game.

Rennes Preview

On the contrary, Rennes have been terrible in this early part of the season, winning just one of their opening six games in Ligue 1. Their sole victory came against Marseille in the first round after the International break, but they succumbed to a narrow 0-1 home loss at the hands of Nice last weekend. This leaves Rennes only in 15th spot in the standings tied on five points with Troyes and Lille, just one point clear of the bottom three. Despite their poor run of form in this early part of the campaign, Rennes looked incredibly strong going forward in this term as they managed an impressive tally of nine goals. Actually, their last weekend’s defeat at the hand of Nice was the only game in which Rennes have failed to score so far this season. Firmnin Mubele and Benjamin Bourigeaud have both enjoyed a strong start to the season, as the pair bagged five goals and two assists between them. Away from home, Rennes have endured a mixed run of form in this early part of the season, but they looked very strong in their 1-3 victory over Marseille in their most recent league trip. Furthermore, Rennes should feel confident ahead of this tie as they are unbeaten in the last two meetings with Saint-Etienne in Ligue 1, conceding just once in the process.

Rennes Team News

Edson Andre Sitoe Mexer, Jordan Tell, Rais M’Bolhi and Yoann Gourcuff are all doubts, but Anthony Ribelin and Abdoulaye Diallo are both back in training.
