Rennes will look to build on their recent victory in Ligue 1 when they travel to the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard to face Saint-Etienne on Sunday afternoon. Saint-Etienne were beaten 3-1 on the road at Lille a fortnight ago, with their consolation goal being scored by Remy Cabella from the spot. Rennes, on the other hand, won 2-1 on the road at Monaco thanks to goals from Damien Da Silva and Hatem Ben Arfa. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Saint-Etienne’s three-game winning streak in Ligue 1 ended two weeks ago, as they lost 3-1 on the road att Lille. Despite the loss, Les Verts still sit 5th in standings, just one point behind the top four. Anyhow, St. Etienne are now back at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard where they are yet to lose in Ligue 1 this season.
On the contrary, Rennes were on a five-game winless streak across all competitions prior to their narrow 2-1 win at Monaco last time out in Ligue 1. Actually, that was their first victory on the road in the last two months. They are now 11th in the league table tied on eleven points with Angers and Nice. The positive fact is that Rennes are undefeated in their last four league meetings with Saint-Etienne.
Saint-Etienne have been a strong side on home soil in Ligue 1 this season and they also hold a solid head-to-head home record against Rennes. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate Saint-Etienne to win at odds 2.25.

First Goalscorer odds
Wahbi Khazri is the St. Etienne’s top scorer at the moment with four goals under his belt, but he is missing through injury. Remy Cabella got on the scoresheet for the second time in the last three games and we fancy him to continue this goalscoring form. Our first goalscorer prediction is Wahbi Khazri at odds 7.00.
