Rennes vs Amiens
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 2nd February 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park (Rennes).
Rennes are in 10th place but come into this game in poor form with no wins in their last 3 matches. However, victory here would take the club into the top 10 and they would find themselves just a couple of points from a European place so there is still all to play for.
At Roazhon Park even though the club have only won 40% of their games here which is poor their recent form has turned around. The club have gone their last 3 games here undefeated including wins over Nimes and Dijon and they haven’t conceded a goal at home since the beginning of December.
Amiens have their own problems which is much worse than Rennes in midtable and the club have the threat of relegation on their hands. They are in 18th place and a win should be able to take them out of the bottom three with the league standings being so close.
The problem is the teams form where they have lost 14 games already this season. This includes losing their last 3 matches although they have had to play the top 3 clubs in a row in an incredibly hard fixture list.
On the road Amiens have the 2nd to worst record in the league where they have just 2 wins all season.
Rennes vs Amiens: Head to Head
Earlier this season in the reverse fixture Amiens won 2-1.
The teams have only played each other 3 times in recent memory, Rennes have 2 wins and Amiens have 1.
There is a 100% success rate for over 1.5 goals.
Rennes vs Amiens: Prediction
Rennes are of course having the better season of the two teams but quality wise there isn’t too much between them and sometimes Amiens have been able to surprise, witness their victory over Toulouse away from home a few weeks ago.
But we need to look at recent home form and Rennes have really turned their season around and that is why we will be backing them to win this game.
Watch out for Rennes’ Jordan Siebatcheu who has hit some form at home and scored a brace of goals lately, he can be backed at a very reasonable price to score anytime and should be taken on.
