Nice vs Rennes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Friday 24th January 2020
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Allianz Riviera (Nice).
Nice come into this game in 11th place but with the league being so close a win on Friday evening could take the club into the top six. Form is good with two draws and two wins and they haven’t lost a game since the beginning of December when they were defeated 4-1 by Saint Etienne.
At home Patrick Vieira’s side have won 60% of their games and have the 6th best home record in the league. They have been really impressive at home lately winning their last 3 games in a row and scoring 10 goals in that time.
Rennes are in 3rd place with 36 points and they are having a great season so far. They have moved 4 points clear of Nantes and this position could mean qualifying for the Champions League which would be a fantastic opportunity for the club. Their last league match ended in a 1-0 win over Nimes. They are just 5 points behind 2nd placed Marseille and that will be the objective to catch the club and qualify for the Champions League proper.
Rennes are in excellent form away from home having won their last 3 games in a row. All of those results ended with the same score line of 1-0 and that includes beating quality like Lyon.
Nice vs Rennes: Head to Head
- Last season Nice won this game 2-1.
- Rennes have not beaten Nice since 2016 going back 9 games.
- There is a 60% chance to see over 2.5 goals.
Nice vs Rennes: Prediction
This match has the potential to be very exciting as both teams are in sold form. Nice have dipped a little this season, but they will understand how important this game is and they have the chance to break into the top 10.
We are going to back the home team to get the win as Rennes do not have a great record over them.
This could be quite an entertaining game and we will also back both teams to find the back of the net as they go in search of all three points.
Expect an open match and a very enjoyable one.
