Stade Reims vs Saint-Etienne Prediction

Reims have done well in their recent fixtures and two of their four wins for the season have come in their last five outings. Saint-Etienne have scored five goals fewer than the hosts and have recorded six draws in their last seven outings.

This game is a difficult one to predict as both teams have shown signs of inconsistency in their performances. We expect Saint-Etienne to play out another draw in the top-flight and avoid defeat in this game.

Prediction: Stade Reims 1-1 Saint-Etienne
