Angers vs Rennes
Coupe de France
Date: Thursday, 11 February 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond-Kopa.
Les Scoistes are currently finding it hard to deliver good performances in the French Ligue 1, and are stuck in the mid-table. They have been dropping points match after match, and have not been impressive in their defense as well.
Even at home the team has been experiencing hardships over the past several months, and by the looks of things, they are on a downward course of the league table.
Meanwhile, the Rennais are one of the best teams in the French top flight, and have been so for the past few years.
They are also in contention to qualify for the European competitions, and are currently placed fifth in the table, despite having a match in hand.
Moreover, the team also has a superb h2h record against this foe over the years.
For the reasons, expect Rennes to progress to the next round with a compelling display this Thursday.

Angers vs Rennes Prediction
Stephane Moulin’s men were winless in five of their preceding six overall games, and they had also lost four of their former six fixtures. And at home, they have won just thrice since September of 2020.
On the other hand, their opposite number were unbeaten in nine of their last ten overall fixtures, and their only defeat in the past ten games had come against Lille. Do also note that they are on a five-match unbeaten run on the road, and three of these were wins.
Finally, Stephan’s men also have a great h2h record against this rival over the past three decades.
Taking these observations into account, expect a Rennes win this Thursday.
