Les Rouges et Noirs, who came sky-high fifth at the end of the last season, got off to a fine start of the Lille tie away at Stade Pierre-Mauroy when their attacking midfielder Clement Grenier broke the deadlock two minutes before the interval.

However, they failed to hold on to the lead allowing three goals to the side which barely saved the elite class status last year to mark a disappointing start to the season for the head coach Sabri Lamouchi.

Rennes vs Angers SCO: Head-to-head

  • The head to head stats completely favour the hosts who won 7, drew 4 and lost only 1 of 12 meetings with Les Scoistes.
  • Rennes came on top on both occasions in the previous term of Ligue 1, beating Angers SCO by a single-goal margin in each of H2H games.
  • Only one of last eight H2H matches between these two sides saw three or more goals scored.
  • Les Rouges et Noirs won 5, drew 3 and lost none of 8 H2H games with Les Scoistes at Roazhon Park.

Rennes vs Angers SCO: Prediction

The low-scoring trend in H2H games could finally come to an end here as we can’t imagine any of these two likes keeping their net untouched after such horrendous defensive showings in the first round.

Les Scoistes had a two-goal cushion against the recently-promoted Nimes side last weekend, but it was not enough as they allowed three late goals to lose 3-4 at their Stade Raymond-Kopa.

Backing goals at both ends thus looks to be just the way to go as you can have such scenario at the sky-high 2.10 odds.

As for the outcome, we give advantage to the hosts because of their dominance in H2H matches at Roazhon Park (five wins, three draws in eight affairs). The alternative pick is the home win at the 1.80 odds.
