Reason For St Etienne VS Rennes Betting Tips

Both St Etienne and Rennes are in danger of having their seasons fizzle out after recording indifferent results of late. The hosts were at one stage fighting on 2 fronts after progressing to the round of 32 in the Europa League, but they were dumped out of the competition by Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United in emphatic fashion. They were also close to Lyon in 4th place as part of the battle to qualify for next season’s Europa League, but St Etienne now found themselves 10 points Lyon with just 6 games remaining for each side. Realistically, the highest the side in green and white can probably finish is 6th in the division, but it has been a solid campaign for them nonetheless.

St Etienne have only scored 35 goals in their 32 matches, but their defence has been exceptionally solid and they have conceded only 29 times. By signing some attacking players of more quality, St Etienne could well go on to a better finish in 2018. Currently, goals have had to be spread around the side, with Romain Hamouma their top scorer on a paltry 6.

Rennes meanwhile have conspired to draw the most games of any side in Ligue 1 this term, 13. Like St Etienne they have relied on a solid defence, but been unable to score freely. Considering they have scored only 31 times this season, a top-half finish would be a superb return for a team that looks to be in transition.

We see this game as being another close game between 2 sides who will need to strengthen their squads in the summer. Our tip is to back a Both Teams To Score bet at odds of 20/21 with bet365.

Our correct score prediction is for the match to end 1-1. That bet is valued at odds of 5/1 also with bet365.
