Saint-Etienne Preview – Can Saint-Etienne get lucky in cup?

Thursday night’s hosts, Saint-Etienne, slumped to another defeat in the French top flight on the weekend, this time a 2-0 loss on the road at Lyon which means the hosts have now registered just 1 win out of their last 7 matches in all competitions.

Saint-Etienne’s only win in recent weeks was a 2-1 win away at Epinal in the previous round of the French cup, but overall results at home have seen the hosts pick up 1 win out of their last 5 matches.

As they currently occupy a lowly 16th place on the Ligue 1 ladder, Saint-Etienne may well be glad of a diversion from their disappointing Ligue 1 campaign as they now take on Rennes in the Coupe de France, having disposed of Bastia-Borgo, Paris FC, Monaco and the aforementioned Epinal – all of which were away from home.

Previous meetings against Rennes though have seen Saint-Etienne on the losing side in the last 2 meetings.

Our betting suggestion:

Rennes Preview – Can Rennes collect three wins on trot?

Rennes bring an encouraging sequence of results into this Coupe de France clash against Saint-Etienne having won 3 of their last 4 matches in all competitions following a previous round win in the cup away at Belfort along with back-to-back wins in Ligue 1 against Nimes and Toulouse respectively.

The visitors have suffered just 2 defeats out of their last 11 matches overall in all competitions which were losses incurred against Lille (away) and Reims (away) in Ligue 1, but their pedigree in the Coupe de France is an excellent one as the visitors have won their last 10 cup-ties on the trot along with winning their last two encounters against Saint-Etienne as well.

Midfielder Hunou (6 goals) along with forwards Niang (10 goals) and Raphinha (5 goals) look the most likely to score for the visitors who possess the greater quality, and will no doubt be seeking to progress into the next round of this domestic cup competition.
