Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
After sharing the spoils with Nantes at the weekend, Saint-Etienne will be looking to return to winning ways in Ligue 1 when they host Rennes at their Stade Geoffroy-Guichard. Les Verts aim to retain top position in the standings, but this game will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Les Rouges et Noirs, on the other hand, aim to extend their winning run in the league to four games.
Rennes proved their worth in a 2-1 win over Monaco, and they are surely capable of matching Saint-Etienne on day 5. Considering that Rennes defender Faitout Maouassa is likely to miss the game with injury, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. It has to be noted that over 2.5 goals have been netted in each of their last four meetings in all competitions.
