Venue: Stade de la Beaujoire (Nantes).

Stade Rennais have always performed well against Nantes, but they are handicapped with the away status for this tie. The fans will tune in to see how this match would turn out and how Rennes would handle this challenge.

Les Canaris have been performing below par (for their standards) in overall games. But they have compensated for it with good displays at home. Their opponents, the Red and Blacks have been a force to reckon with in general but has had their challenges on the road.

The match is sure to be of great importance to football fans, and especially Ligue 1 fans, as such fierce ties are a rarity for them.

Nantes vs Rennes Prediction

We have quite an exciting fixture at hand this weekend. The Canaries, who were unbeaten at home in 12 of their last 15 appearances, go against Stade Rennais who have won six of their last seven matches and is unbeaten in 10 of their last 11.

The away record of the visitors causes a bit of concern to their fans though. The team was winless in 12 of their last 16 matches on the road. Contrasting to that, they were unbeaten at this venue in their last eight appearances against Vahid Halilhodzic’s men.

Considering the historical superiority that the guests have over Nantes, recent struggles of Stade on the road, and the excellent run of Les Canaris at home – the only logical conclusion to arrive at is that the match will be drawn.

Nine of the last 12 h2h games at this venue had under 2.5 match goals and the last seven straight overall h2h matches had both teams on the scoresheet. Coupling this information with the above observations, a 1-1 draw seems the most obvious choice to back.
