Betting Tips for the game
Saint-Etienne’s three-game winless streak in Ligue 1 ended at the weekend as they beat Angers 4-3 in front of their own fans. Les Verts currently sit 5th in the league table, just one point behind 4th-placed Lyon. Saint-Etienne should feel confident ahead of this clash as they are undefeated in six home league games at the moment, winning four in the process.
Reims have also enjoyed a strong run of form in Ligue 1 recently, as they are currently unbeaten in five fixtures. This leaves Reims in 8th position in the standings tied on 17 points with Strasbourg and Nice. Away from home, Reims were on a four-game winless streak in the league prior to their 0-2 win at Rennes in their most recent trip.
Saint-Etienne should be able to grab all three points here as they have been excellent on home soil throughout this campaign. Our betting tips and predictions would back Saint-Etienne to win at odds 1.83.
