Rennes vs Amiens Prediction

By virtue of their presence in the top flight of French football, both these teams gained entry to this round of the competition directly.

And right away, Rennes emerge the favorite as well. They are currently placed third in the Ligue 1 table, just below PSG, and Marseille.

They are also on a five-match winning streak in the league (which only PSG have been able to replicate), and are on a six-game winning run in front of the home crowd, in all competitions.

Furthermore, Rennes have scored two or more goals in five of their last six home games, and kept clean sheets in their last two such match-ups. They also have the home advantage on top of all this.

On the other hand, Amiens are placed in the relegation zone of the league table, and have conceded the second-most number of goals in the process. They are also winless in their last six league games, of which five were losses.

To pile on, Amiens have the away handicap to deal with as well this weekend. They are on a nine-match winless run on the road, and a four-game losing run in away fixtures.

Moreover, the team conceded a total of 16 goals from their last five away games, and have not kept a single clean sheet on the road this whole season.

Importantly, the team has a single road win this whole campaign, and this only win had come against a similar relegation-battler.

In addition, Rennes hold a 100% winning record in h2h clashes at this venue, and have kept clean sheets in all matches but one, this decade.

Taking into account all these findings, it’s easily deducted that Rennes hold an overwhelming opportunity to record a massive win this Saturday, and progress to the next round.
