Rennes vs Caen
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 11th September
Kick Off: 16:00 BST
Venue: Stade de la Route de Lorient.
After losing their first game of the season to Nice, Rennes have really stabilized although the media won’t believe it unless they get a victory over Caen. The home team cruised past Nancy 2-0 and in their last match got a decent 1-1 draw at Montpellier. The good news for Rennes is that there are goals in this team.
Caen have got off to a much better start than expected with 2 wins from 3 but those two wins were both at home. They went down too easy to Lyon 2-0 in their one away game but Rennes on the face of it shouldn’t be as strong as Lyon and Caen will be aiming to set up their team for the counter. Everyone understands that the away team will be happy if they come away with a point.
Rennes vs Caen: Head-to-Head Stats
Rennes used to do well in this fixture but in the last 3 league meetings Caen have come out victorious which include winning 4-1 here in 2015. There is an 80% chance that we will see under 3 goals, a stat we can’t ignore.
Rennes vs Caen: Prediction
Caen will come to Rennes not to lose and so if they can perform this task they have a great chance to get something. We believe they can and we should be looking into the value of a Caen win on the handicap. Rennes are no pushovers especially at home but Caen have some recent history on their side and the chance to move up in Ligue 1. They will surely sweep the midfield with five players and play a frustrating holding game, making sure Rennes don’t achieve many chances.
