St Etienne - Rennes

6 Jul 2021
05.12.21 - 13:00 CET

FRANCE: Ligue 1

The "Greens" continue to languish near the bottom of the table even after improving their performances and there are not many indications that any result rise will happen after this round, because not very popular opponent - Stade Rennes - will come to the east of France. Coach Puel is still looking for the optimal line-up, almost every time someone else plays on the wings or in the middle of the pitch, which certainly doesn't have a good impact on the team's interplay, and the team's top scorer Wahbi Khazri has been silent.

St. Etienne are last in the league with 12 points from 15 games and a 17:31 score. They did win against Troyes (1:0) and Clermont (3:2) before their last game against Paris (1:3), but they are two direct competitors for the survival, while Rennes are on a different level. Until then, they've only picked up draws (6) and defeats (7).

Rennes arrive to the mining town in a not so good mood, as after 13 competitive matches (10 wins, 3 draws) Bruno Genesio's charges tasted the bitterness of defeat, losing at home to Lille 1:2. The unsuccessful match was crowned by the second yellow card of the aforementioned French pilot on the bench of Rennes and he will watch Sunday's match only from the stands and the team will be led by assistants.

Rennes is in 2nd place behind Paris. They have 28 points from 15 matches with a score of 26:12. In the Europa League they are already assured of promotion from 1st place after 5 rounds. They have a great defence as they are tied for the first position of the lowest conceding team in the French league. They only concede 0.8 goals per game. In attack, the duo of Labarde (9) and Terrier (5) are doing great, scoring only 3 goals less than the whole St. Etienne team.

Today, the third best offense meets the worst defense. If the visitors build on their performance, they should outplay their opponents and pick up another three points.

My bet:
Rennes @ 1.85 (bet365)
