Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade La Beaujoire.
With no wins in almost 2 months Nantes have fallen down too 16th place and are just three points from going down into the bottom three.
Nantes last game ended in a 3-0 away loss against Lyon and it has been a miserable time for the club from the west of France. But victory in midweek could see them move up a position and they will be happy at least to be playing at home.
At home Nantes have drawn 50% of their games and this includes three of their last four outings. Nantes last game at home was the local derby match which ended 1-1 against Angers.
Rennes are the best in form side in Ligue 1 and finished last year having won 4 games in a row. Their latest victory came at home as they beat Metz 1-0.
Rennes are in 4th place with 31 points and are four points behind PSG and 5 points behind Lyon, the league leaders.
Nantes vs Rennes: Head to Head
Last season this fixture ended 1-0 to Nantes that is Nantes only victory in the league against Rennes in the last 13 meetings.
4 of the last 5 league games have finished in under 2.5 goals.
The last 0-0 between the teams in the league happened in 2015.
Nantes vs Rennes: Prediction
Nantes are struggling and they have a very difficult game here against Rennes who will test them to capacity. Though Nantes won their last home fixture against Rennes history says they struggle and we think that could happen again.
There isn’t much to suggest that Nantes can give Rennes a game and we have to respect that Rennes have won their last 4 games and away from home they have won their last 2 games and only lost once so far.
Rennes can win the game and they should be able to score a couple of goals too, both of which markets are a good price.
Nantes vs Rennes Bet Tips:
Rennes to beat Nantes at 2.00 (1/1)
Rennes to score 2+ goals at 2.25 (5/4).
