Saint-Etienne take on the visitors Stade Rennais at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard in the 10th tour of the Ligue 1 Conforama. The match will be played in the eponymous city Saint-Etienne on Sunday, October 21st.
Saint-Etienne are on the fourth place in the Ligue 1 Conforama at the moment. It`s worth noting though that all of their home fixtures so far this season have been against weak opponents such as Amiens, Caen, Monaco and Guingamp. All of those teams have been in the lower part of the table recently. Les Verts have managed to get ten points overall in their matches against those teams in front of their home crowd. Overall, they have fifteen points to their credit right now. Their upcoming opponent will not be that easy for the team of Jean-Louis Gasset to beat though. Stade Rennais are very similar to Saint-Etienne at the moment. Interestingly, the Sainte have an 11-12 goal difference to their credit now. In their last three matches Saint-Etienne lost to Lille with a 1-3 score, beat Monaco with a 2-0 score and Toulouse with a 3-2 score.

Stade Rennais have been having a tough schedule recently. First, they lost to Paris Saint-Germain. Second, they lost to Lyon who were second in the Ligue 1 Conforama. Then, Les Rouges et Noirs drew against Marseille. Finally, they drew against tough Toulouse who placed eighth in the league. Also, the team of Sabri Lamouchi managed to beat Bordeaux. Thereby they are only on the eleventh place in the table right now. If they did not have that tough schedule they would place in the first five of the Ligue 1 Conforama for sure. What`s really interesting though is that the team from Rennes has scored at least one goal in every match they have had so far this season. They have done that even against Paris Saint-Germain. Also, Les Rouges et Noirs have scored some goals in of their recent UEFA Europa League group stage games. In their last three matches Stade Rennais beat Monaco with a 2-1 score, lost to Astana with a 0-2 score in their UEFA Europa League group stage fixture and drew against Toulouse with a 1-1 score.
Saint-Etienne have been conceding lots of goals match after match recently. They have allowed some goals even against the clear outsider in the Ligue 1 Conforama which has been Guingamp. Furthermore, the key defender for Les Verts which is Mathieu Debuchy will miss the upcoming fixture due to injury to him as well as Ole Selnaes. Stade Rennais on the other hand have scored in all of their games they have had so far this Ligue 1 Conforama season. They are likely to score in the upcoming match too. However, Les Rouges et Noirs have also conceded at least one goal in all of their matches this season except for two against Amiens and Bordeaux. Considering that fact it is likely that the Sainte will also score some goals on Sunday. The final prediction is both Saint-Etienne and Stade Rennais scoring goals in the upcoming game between them.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score.
