Kick off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Stade Francis- Le Ble (Brest).
Brest lost their last game 3-0 away to PSG but that won’t be much concern for the club as they were expected to lose in Paris against the champions.
Indeed Brest played some good football against PSG and limited the score line. However they have lost 2 in their last 3 games but being back home they will feel confident of getting something here.
For Brest it is all about home form and they have won 19 of their 26 points here. Brest have won 4 of their last 5 home matches and won 6 of 9 overall. They have beaten good teams here too including Lille a few weeks ago.
Rennes are in 5th place and are unbeaten in their last 5 games. However their last two were both draws and they have fallen off the pace slightly and have 33 points. Currently Rennes are seven points behind the league leaders Lyon.
On the road Rennes are unbeaten in their last 4 games with their last match ending in a 0-0 draw with Nantes and have lost just once away from home. Rennes has the sixth best away record in the league.

Brest vs Rennes Prediction
Brest have a very good home record and Rennes a good away record so something could give in this game.
Rennes have been solid this season with just minor dips and should be considered the favourites to win. On the other hand we have to respect how strong Brest have been at home.
This is a game that could be very entertaining with both teams not afraid to attack, we will back the home side to get the three points and end Rennes good run. This is a very difficult ground to go too and Brest has the motivation to move into the top 10 with victory.
