Amiens vs Rennes
France – League Cup
Date: Wednesday 18th December 2019
Kick off at 20:05 UK/ 21:05 CET
Venue: Stade de la Licorne (Amiens).
Amiens and Rennes will go into this last 16 matches knowing this is an all Ligue 1 tie and the teams will know each other inside out.
Amiens are at home and that can be said to be an advantage and they will feel that they can win this match. Amiens overcame Angers in the last round winning a five-goal thriller which finished 3-2. If Amiens can go really far in this competition it could give the club a lift and of course would be a surprise and they are just one game away from reaching the last 8.
The home side are in 17th in the league and form is poor and the club will have one eye on the league and thinking will this cup run get in our way? They haven’t won in the last 5 games and they need a win under their belt.
Rennes enter the cup at this stage, and they won’t be taking Amiens lightly. The club are in 4th place and are in brilliant form having won 4 games in a row. They got a great result last weekend by beating Lyon and there is a lot of confidence about the team. Even away from home form is good having won their last two games.
Amiens vs Rennes: Head to Head
The last time the teams met here Amiens won 2-1.
From the last 5 meetings Rennes have won 4 of them.
There is a 60% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
Amiens vs Rennes: Prediction
We think Rennes can win this game. They are in very good form and have the better team and have great results over Amiens in general. They like to play very quick football but can get physical if needed and that in cup game is what you need sometimes.
This is set to be end to end stuff with lots of chances for both sides but Rennes just possess that little bit more in them where they can convert their chances better.
So our pick here is to see the away win and for smaller stakes with value we will pick out the correct score.
Amiens vs Rennes: Bet Tips:
Rennes to beat Amiens at 2.25 (5/4)
Correct Score: Rennes to win 1-0 or 2-1 at 7.00 (6/1) and 9.00 (8/1)
