St Etienne vs Rennes Match Preview
Rennes travel to St Etienne for their Coupe de France clash on Thursday evening in a great mood, after beating Nimes (2-1) and Toulouse (0-2) over the past two weeks and keeping hold of the 3rd spot in Ligue 1. They’ll now want to keep it up and snatch a ticket to the Final at Geoffroy Guichard Stadium, promising a great challenge.
Red and Blacks have had more trouble retaining consistency on the road and this could be more worrying. They did concede just two goals in four away games in February and this will surely be ground to build on, but Julien Stephan’s men could need more to cause an upset on the day.
St Etienne have seen quite a contrasting spell of form in Ligue 1 and they sit just outside the relegation zone with 29 points to their name after 27 outings. They earned just one in six games since early February and Cup success has been a rare bright spot in their campaign so far.
Claude Puel will now want to build on such performances but his men are up against possibly the toughest challenge yet, after beating Paris FC (2-3), Monaco (0-1), and Epinal (1-2) in three narrow Coupe de France games so far. They have been conceding goals at this ground quite regularly and this could mean trouble this time around.
We will now back Rennes to capitalize on the rivals’ struggles and we’ll go for them to secure a ticket to the Final with an Away win priced at 8/5 with Paddy Power, which feels like great value at this point.
We feel we should be in for a very tight contest and St Etienne will be no sitting ducks here. With that in mind, we’re hoping to see goals on both ends and we’re backing a Yes on Both teams to score at 4/5 with bet365!
