Rennes vs Brest
France- Coupe de France.
Date: Sunday, 6th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 08:15 UK/ 09:15 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park (Rennes).

Rennes will be looking at a straight forward victory in the French Cup as they face Brest on Sunday.

The Red and Black are currently on a 5 match win streak in all competitions. This flurry of wins have took them into the top-10 position in the Ligue 1 table. The team from Rennes have scored a healthy 27 goals but conceded 25 goals in return.

THE team managed by Julien Stephan has scored a minimum of 2 times in their last 5 matches across all venues. At home too they enjoy a 4 match winning run and never failed to score in the last 6 matches in front of their home crowd too.

Apart from the loss against Lens, Brest has been unbeaten in their last 10 fixtures in both League 2 and Coupe de France. More than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of their recent 5 matches in all venues and they are currently on a 3 match unbeaten run too.

From their last 5 away games they won twice and lost only once. Three of those games had more than 2.5 goals in total as well.

The tactics of Manager Jean-Marc Furlan seems to be working in the league as they are well placed for a promotion to Ligue 1 next season. But against a stronger side like Rennes things won’t be easy for him and his team.

Rennes has been playing against stronger opposition all through this season. They have players who can turn the game in their favour. Also they have never lost a game to Brest at home. So a bet can be placed on the hosts to win with 1.75 odd.

The home team is fresh from a 4-0 victory against Nimes. In all their previous 4 games at home they managed to score at least 2 goals. So we can be sure of that repeating again on Sunday. Thus we can place a bet on Red and Black scoring 2 or more goals against Brest with 4.00 odds.
