After finishing 17th in the previous edition of Ligue 1, St. Etienne will be overjoyed with their emphatic start to the 2020-21 season.

STE Vs REN Fantasy Picks
They might have shipped in their first goals in the bygone affair but that takes nothing away from the fact that St. Etienne had three cleansheets on the spin prior to that. The side’s defence has been a staunch unit credit to Jessy Moulin to see him be inducted in our setup for this one.
These two have been impeccable defensively in the league but a cleansheet for either looks extremely improbable. This is a clash which is a high stakes affair and given the colossal ramifications stemming from the fixture, both the teams are bound to come out hammer and tongs.

With St. Etienne set to struggle defensively today, the side will rely on its attacking names to keep its unbeaten run intact. And at the forefront of that gameplan will be Denis Bouanga who has the two goals to see him be the first pick from the club in this slot.
A reason he’s tasted such consummate success is due to the services of Arnaud Nordin. The side’s top assist provided, Nordin has made full use of his eye for the crosses and passes to assist his counterparts on three occasions.
With the one goal, Mahdi Camara will be bringing down the curtains on our set of picks from the side. Rennes on the other hand see us rope in Steven N’Zonzi who has the one goal and Benjamin Bourigeaud given the one assist he’s registered for the side.
