Rennes vs Caen
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 10th March 2019
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park.
Rennes come into this game very happy as they beat Arsenal 3-1 in the first leg of their Europa League match. They will surely have one eye focused for the 2nd leg.
What we must understand with Rennes is that they have switched off from the league. This was evident when the club were able to postpone their league game to prepare for the Arsenal match.
They come into this game in 10th and are safe and have 37 points but maybe they are just too far behind to claim a European place. Whilst the chance remains it is clear that the club want to put all of their eggs in one basket and try to win the Europa League. They have no wins from their last 2 games.
Caen are 18th and they need a win. They are 5 points from safety and need to win and rely on other teams just above dropping points to give them a chance. They have gained just 2 points from their last available 15 and are in poor form. Away from home Caen have just 1 win all season and have picked up only 9 points from a possible 39.

Rennes vs Caen: Prediction
Hosts Rennes do have the better team but they played in midweek and celebrated hard after the victory.
But, we are going to back Caen on the double chance here to get something. They have to fight hard in this game and it is questionable if Rennes will give them too many problems and could be happy to get the draw.
We will also back Enzo Crivelli to get on the scoresheet for Caen who has been playing well but also been unlucky, this could be his game to shine.
Rennes vs Caen: Bet Tips
Double Chance: Caen win or draw at 2.20 (6/5)
Anytime goalscorer: Enzo Crivelli (Caen) at 5.00 (4/1).
