It was winger Allan Saint-Maximin whose second half goals made all the difference and instilled a massive confidence injection into Patrick Vieira’s troops.

Can they take advantage of the momentum to make it back-to-back wins on Friday evening when Rennes come to visit Allianz Riviera?

It will by no means be an easy task for the hosts given Les Rouges et Noirs’ form at the start of the season.

The visitors lost the opening fixture 3-1 away at Lille, but went on to collect seven points from three following ties.

Such form has to be respected knowing the opposition in last two included Olympique Marseille and Bordeaux.

Nice vs Rennes: Head-to-head

Nice were much more successful in the most recent head to head history.

Les Aiglons won three and drew two of last five head to head matches against Rennes.

Les Rouges et Noirs still have the overall lead in H2H stats (by two wins) ahead of 41st encounter with Nice.

Under 2.5 goals FT landed in three of past four head to head games.

Nice vs Rennes: Prediction

Both managers have issues with injured players. Mario Balotelli could miss out for the hosts, while Sabri Lamouchi still can’t count on services of Hatem Ben Arfa.

However, we have reasons to expect a low-scoring contest here knowing that both teams kept their net untouched in previous round affairs against the likes of Lyon and Bordeaux respectively.

Knowing that only one of past four H2H games offered three or more goals, the Under 2.5 goals FT just has to be the main betting option, set at the odds of 1.70.

You can alternatively shoot for the draw at the half time at 2.05.

Nice vs Rennes: Bet Tips

Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.70 (7/10)

Draw at the half time @ 2.10 (11/10).
