St Etienne vs Rennes Prediction & Tips
Being first in the championship lead after five days already played is a unique feeling. Especially for teams not too accustomed to the thrill that gives the high ranking. This is the case of Saint-Etienne and Rennes who, taking advantage of the delayed (and slow) start of Paris Saint Germain, have settled at the top and have no intention of slowing down. Except that, game-force, the direct confrontation from this point of view will penalize one of the two (if not both in case of a tie). And behind it there are others ready to take advantage of it, such as Montpellier, Lens and Lille. Waiting, of course, for the “big” ones to wake up from their torpor …
Same score for Saint-Etienne and Rennes: three wins and one draw in the four games played so far in the league.
Results that earned them ten points and first place in the standings. At nine they are chasing Montpellier and Lens, at eight Lille.
Rennes drew on their debut in Lille (1-1), and then struck three consecutive victories (2-1 at home with Montpellier and Monaco, 2-4 at Nimes)
Reverse path of Saint-Etienne who won the first three and then drew the last of the championship instead.
Two home wins against Lorient and Strasbourg (both 2-0), one away to Marseille (0-2) and finally the draw in Nantes (2-2).
This is one of those matches that are truly open to any kind of result and difficult to predict, also because both teams are unbeaten and have started very well.
