Brest vs Rennes
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 14th September 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Francis-Le-Ble (Brest)
Brest have started good considering they are back in Ligue 1 after quite a long spell out and started the season with 3 games undefeated. However their last game was a trip to Nimes which ended badly for them as they were beaten 3-0 and that was their first taste of defeat this season.
Brest’s season though will be how do they perform at home? They have beaten Reims already this season here and that is a club who have started quite strong this season, it is fair to say that Brest should be picking up most of their points at home, and this could be a game where they will think there is 3 points here.
Rennes lost at home in their last match 2-1 to Nice in what was an expected victory, but take that out and they have had a superb start to the season which has saw the Coupe de France winners win 3 games from 4 and they are now only 2nd on goal difference to PSG, who they beat earlier on in the season. Rennes have only conceded 3 goals so far this season.
Brest vs Rennes: Head to Head
The last 3 games to have been played at Brest have all ended with Rennes wins.
There is an 80% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
The last time the teams met was in the cup where Rennes won.
Brest vs Rennes: Prediction
This has got all the ingredients to be a very tasty fixture but we don’t think we will see many goals here and the ball could be kept in the middle of the field, as the two teams try to catch each other out. Rennes got a little stunned by losing to Nice as they had started so well.
Brest will get points at home, their application in beating Reims a few weeks ago assures this and we are going to back the home team to get all three points in this game.
Brest vs Rennes: Bet Tips:
Brest to beat Rennes at 3.00 (2/1)
Under 2.5 goals at 1.72 (8/11).
