Saint-Etienne vs Reims: Free Predictions by Football Whispers
Saint-Etienne and Reims last met in December 2021. Reims won that game 2-0. Will the visitors pile up more misery on the struggling Saint-Etienne or the hosts can pull a surprise here? Our best two predictions for Saint-Etienne vs Reims are:
Reims to score first @ 7/4 (2.75)
We think Reims stands a better chance of scoring the first goal based on the stats of these teams. The visitors have done better than Etienne recently. Reims bagged 2W, 1D and 2L in their last five games which is a better record than Etienne’s 1W, 1D and 3L in their last five outings. Moreover Etienne never defeated Reims in the last five matches and with their current struggles, every scoring the first goal in this game could prove difficult for the struggling hosts.
Over 2.5 goals @4/5 (1.80)
Over 2.5 is our second tip in this match. Saint-Etienne saw more than two goals in each of their last five matches. Defensive problems have been their biggest undoing and it could manifest in this second-last game of the season. Moreover, three of Reims last five games ended with at least three goals.

Saint-Etienne vs Reims Preview, Analysis and News
Saint-Etienne occupies the relegation playoff spot ahead of this game and so, the question is whether they can survive the drop or settle for the playoffs. The fact that Etienne never defeated Reims in the last five games further complicates their chances in this game. Notably, Etienne lost 2-0 to Reims in the reverse meeting and with their current poor form, overturning that result could be tricky. So, there is a good chance that Reims will complete the double against the struggling opponents in this second-last match of the current Ligue 1 season.
Saint-Etienne predicted lineup: Bernardoni, Silva, Mangala, Moukoudi, Macon, Sow, Nordin, Camara, Youssouf, Bouanga and Boudebouz.
Reims predicted lineup: Rajkovic, Gravillon, Faes, Abdelhamid, Foket, Munetsi, Azor, Lopy, Locko, Zeneli and Toure.
