Nice vs Rennes Prediction & Match Preview

Nice vs Rennes
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 13 December 2020
Kick-off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Riviera.

The Eagles are going through a dismal run at the moment. In fact it has been on for about two months, and despite the best of their efforts, the team has not been able to show any kind of an improvement.

They are also conceding goals in plenty and even in their games at home. They surely have become desperate, and will try their level best this Sunday to put an end to these woes.

Meanwhile, the Rennais too are one of the worst teams in the competition at the moment. They also are losing game after game, and are letting in goals by huge numbers.

On top of that they are also on the road, and they have been even weaker in away fixtures for the past few months.

In addition, majority of h2h clashes have also had goals in plenty. Joining all these dots, the inference is that either team will go for the three points at the Allianz Riviera since they are desperate, and this will lead to a goal-fest – considering the weak defenses on either side.

Nice vs Rennes: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Five of the former six clashes had goals from both teams.
  • Nine of the preceding fourteen encounters had three or more goals.
  • Seven of the past nine meetings at this venue had goals from both teams.
  • Six of the last nine match-ups at this stadium had three or more goals as well.

Nice vs Rennes: Prediction

Adrian Ursea’s men recorded a 0-0 draw the last match-day on the road, against Reims. In the meantime, Julien Stephan’s men lost 0-2 at home the past game week, against Lens.

Going on, the Eagles had conceded three or more goals in four of their previous seven overall fixtures, and they had let in two or more goals in five of these seven matches. At home, they are on a four-game losing run, and had conceded 11 goals in the process.

On the other hand, their counterparts had lost nine of their former eleven match-ups, and they have not kept a single clean sheet in their past 13 games. On the road, their latest clean sheet had come back in September, and before that in February.

Going on, majority of h2h meetings over the years have had goals come in huge numbers, and especially so at this venue.

Considering all these stats, and the desperation of the two squads – expect a high-scoring thriller this Sunday between these two squads.
