Rennes vs Brest French Ligue 1 Predictions by LeagueLane

Rennes vs Brest 
France – Ligue 1 
Date: Wednesday, 31 August 2022 
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET 
Venue: Roazhon Park. 

Rennes have been one of the best teams in the French top flight for the past few years and they had secured a fourth-place finish at the end of the last campaign. Meanwhile Brest had to settle for a finish in the mid table. 

And it seems that their problems have only increased this time around. They have so far let in the most number of goals of all the teams in the competition and in return they have been able to find the back of the net only once in a while. 

They have also been struggling to post points on the board and most importantly they have been on a poor stretch of results on the road for quite some time now. 

Meanwhile Rennes have managed to maintain some level of form in front of their home crowd and they have also consistently found the back of the net during these fixtures.  

And on top of that they also have a dominant head-to-head record against this rival over the years and taking into account all these observations it is expected that Rennes will post the three points on the board this Wednesday.
