– Rennes had an extremely disappointing performance in the last round and was defeated 4-0 on his land Bordeaux. Host band is forced to recover very quickly after that failure, because now will meet another very dangerous opponent. It currently ranks seventh in the hierarchy and still has hopes that the end of the season will catch a position that ensures the presence in the next edition of the European Cup. Stade Rennais has already been removed from the rest of internal competitions so that they can focus only on Ligue 1. It is quite interesting that the band prepared by Rolland Courbis are better away than at home. She received a total of only three victories at home, where until the moment did not beat any opponent positioned in the first half of the hierarchy.
– St. Etienne is positioned two places lower than his opponent tonight. “Greens” and they come after a failure, being narrowly defeated by PSG at home. But now they try to interrupt the negative series they were traveling. Visiting band has not won a game played away from home in late September, and since then has undergone, largely defeats. Christophe Galtier we see that still adopt a very defense style game. Incidentally seven of the previous eight matches played by St. Etienne ended with under 2.5 goals, so we should not be surprised if now we will witness another duel quite dull. “Greens” still lack a true scorer, because any striker in the lot not scored more than three goals in the current edition of Ligue 1.
Both teams did not feel too well in such matches. If Rennes won only three wins this season at home, visitors have never achieved success in running in September. Moreover, St. Etienne is a team that practices a very defensive game, and lately most of the parties has disputed that ended with under 2.5 goals. If we look over the balance of previous direct meetings, it can be seen that the show was completely absent. Two teams meet tonight who are not adept at a game contre, and I believe that chances are that the duel to end more than two goals.
