Caen vs Rennes Prediction and Match Preview

Caen vs Rennes
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 3rd November 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Michel d’Ornano (Caen).

Caen are in 15th position and it is normal to think that this campaign has been a very typical start for the side. They have played 11 games and have 11 points and they have not won for the last 3 games which is a worry for the club. They are just 1 point from the bottom three. However a win could move the club 3 or 4 places depending on results.

In midweek Caen were dumped out of the French League Cup when they lost 3-1 away to Dijon. But Caen do hold a special record at home where they still are unbeaten and yet they have only won 1 game here. The other 4 matches have all ended in draws.

Rennes are in 14th and just one place and one point above Caen so there really is all to play for here. Last weekend they lost at home to Reims 2-0 which was seen as a surprise and this has not been a good season so far for the club. They have won just 1 game from their past 5 matches and away from home they have won only 1 game, although they are currently on a 2 game unbeaten streak after beating Monaco 2-1 and then drawing against Saint Etienne 1-1.

Caen vs Rennes: Head to Head

  • Last season the teams drew this fixture 2-2.
  • Caen have not won at home against Rennes since 2016.
  • 4 from the last 5 games when Caen have been at home has ended in under 2.5 goals.

Caen vs Rennes: Prediction

Rennes are not in good form and this reminds us of last season when they struggled to get results in the early part of the season and then recovered. We are going to back the home win as Caen are showing some potential and have been unlucky in some of their games. They are at home and have to deliver something positive to their fans.

We will also back Enzo Crivelli to score for the home team. Caen have not scored a goal for the last three games and they are due some change of luck.

Caen vs Rennes: Bet Tips

  • Caen to beat Rennes at 3.25 (9/4)
  • Anytime goalscorer: Enzo Crivelli (Caen) at 4.00 (3/1).
