Les Rennais welcomes AS Saint-Etienne to the Roazhon Park on Saturday for this Ligue 1 match. Neutrals will be hoping the goals keep flowing here with ten goals in the two games involving these sides last weekend. Odds of 1.5/1 for an over 2.5 goal game would suggest most agree it could be another goal-fest.
Stade Rennais FC come into the match having picked up 10 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six matches.
The Rennais destroyed Lorient in their last league match despite playing with only ten men for over half an hour. Expected goals of 1.7 to 0.5 in favour of Rennes indicates it was likely a fair result albeit a very flattering scoreline. Lorenz Assignon was instrumental in creating two of Rennes's five goals against Lorient. These were Assignon's first two assists this season in the league for Rennes this season. The final score of the match was 5-0.
After another goal against Lorient, Martin Terrier remains Stade Rennais FC’s top scorer and moves onto 21 goals in Ligue 1 this season. He is the 1.75/1 favourite to score against AS Saint-Etienne on Saturday.
Their opponent on Saturday, AS Saint-Etienne, come into the match on a run of four away league games without a win. They have picked up five points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.
The Greens lost their last league match at home to AS Monaco FC. Expected goals of 3.3 to 1.0 in favour of Monaco indicates perhaps it was a fair result. Wahbi Khazri’s penalty just before halftime turned out to be a mere consolation goal in the end. He now has ten league goals this season for Saint-Etienne and is 4.33/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 1-4.

Stade Rennais FC team news
The red card shown to Naif Aguerd in their last league match against Lorient means Rennes will now be without him for today's match.
Jérémy Gélin (cruciate ligament), Loïc Badé (groin injury), Kamaldeen Sulemana (back injury), and Alfred Gomis (fractured finger) will be unavailable for Les Rennais due to injury on Saturday.
Stade Rennais FC are likely to stick with a winning team after beating FC Lorient in their last league match. Although, after a brace of assists in his ten-minute cameo, Lorenz Assignon will be hoping to get the nod here.
AS Saint-Etienne team news
Injuries will rule out Enzo Crivelli (groin injury) and Falaye Sacko (cruciate ligament) for the trip to Roazhon Park.
They may look to shuffle their deck voluntarily having lost against AS Monaco FC in their last league match. Although, based on the performances of their five subs, there is nothing to suggest they would fare any better than those who started the last match.
