Can Saint-Etienne stave of relegation versus Reims?

Saint-Etienne occupy the relegation playoff place in Ligue 1 heading into matchday 37 in France. Just two matches are left in the Ligue 1 season.

Les Verts are three points ahead of 19th-place Metz. Three points separate Saint-Etienne and 17th-place Lorient. It feels like anything can happen for Saint-Etienne with just six points left to play for.

Reims are 12th in the division. They are safe from relegation and will enjoy Ligue 1 football next season. Reims have taken 43 points from 36 matches thus far.

If Saint-Etienne do not get a win, they could end the weekend in 18th place. Metz have a slightly better goal difference. A win would see Metz move into the relegation playoff if they win and Saint-Etienne lose to Reims.

Reims have a better head-to-head record than Saint-Etienne in fixtures between the two sides. Stade have a record of 3W-2D-1L in the last six encounters with Les Verts. Reims have outscored Reims 10-6 in those six matches.

Saint-Etienne are on a three-match losing streak in the league ahead of the match. In midweek, Les Verts had a 2-0 halftime lead against Nice only to lose 4-2 in the end. Les Verts took a mere four points from the last 18 points on offer. They were outscored 19-9.

Reims only did slightly better in their last six games. Stade picked up seven points from the last 18 points on offer in Ligue 1. They were outscored 8-7 by opponents.

Three players will be missing for Saint-Etienne this weekend. Forward Wahbi Khazri and Lucas Gourna-Douath are both suspended for the fixture. Midfielder Falaye Sacko is ruled out for the remainder of the season.

Five players are on the Reims injury list. Forward Mitchell van Bergan is unlikely to make the side due to a back injury. Ghislain Konan is a doubt due to a back injury as well.

Midfielder Moreto Cassama has an ankle issue that could keep him out. Midfielder Jens Cajuste is nursing a muscle problem and is a doubt to play. Forward Anastasios Donis could return to the team following an ankle injury.

Saint-Etienne have a home record of 4W-6D-8L this season. Reims have an away record of 5W-7D-6L this term.

Saturday’s penultimate Ligue 1 fixture for both clubs should finish in a score draw. Saint-Etienne will once again give up goals, just as they did in midweek versus Nice. Les Verts and Reims should play a 2-2 draw with both sides gaining a point.
