Nantes vs Rennes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 25 September 2019
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Beaujoire (Nantes).
Rennes did finish tenth in the table last season. But they had found another route to make it to Europe, and that was by winning the Coupe de France. This campaign, they had one of the most desirable starts any team could hope for in the French Ligue 1. At home, they delivered an opening-day loss to the reigning, undisputed champions, PSG.
While they failed to keep the momentum going on for quite long, the squad is still to be feared of. And hosts Nantes will be aware of exactly this. They had their three-game winning run in the competition cut short by Strasbourg the last day.
But with the home advantage to boost their chances, the squad will look to get back into their groove.
Nantes vs Rennes Head-to-head (h2h)
- Les Rennais won the last two clashes.
- Ten of the previous eleven wins went to the same squad as well.
- The prior six wins on the trot went to the guests at this venue.
- The last Nantes kept won at home was back in 2005.
Nantes vs Rennes Prediction
H2h clashes astoundingly place the tag of favorites on Julien Stephan’s men. They won the prior two encounters, recorded ten of the former eleven wins, and the last six at this venue. They have also been unbeaten against this opponent in the last six years, and at this venue since 2005.
As such, count on them to avoid a loss this Wednesday, but taking into account the new-found-form of the Canaries at this stadium, where they went unbeaten in ten of the prior eleven appearances, eight of them wins, the chances for the guests to keep a clean sheet are slim.
