Rennes vs Metz
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 23rd December 2020
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park.

Rennes seem to have found their form again and they won their third game in a row at the weekend.

Rennes beat Lorient away from home 3-0 and that was the clubs 8th win of the season meaning that they have won 50% of their league games so far. With that victory Rennes has moved up to 5th place with 28 points.

The home side will be the favourites to win this match and at home they have won 4 from their 8 games played so far but they have lost 2 of their last three encounters. Their last home match was an impressive 2-1 victory over Marseille.

Metz are in 10th and come here in good form, they are unbeaten in their last three games. They have won back to back matches and last weekend they were able to beat Lens 2-0.

Metz would surely go into the top 10 with a win in midweek and on the road they have only lost twice. Indeed they have drawn 50% of their games away from home and have no losses in over 2 months.

Rennes vs Metz: Head to Head

  • The last time the clubs met here was in 2018 when Metz pulled a surprise and won 2-1.

Rennes vs Metz: Prediction

Rennes have goals in them but the statistic that there is a 90% chance to see less than 3 goals should not be ignored.

Metz have made life difficult for Rennes taking points from them and we will also back the draw at half time. This could be a full time result but it is a risky market to back usually.

Rennes have excellent form but they already showed us that at the beginning of the season and then it fell apart and Metz can be a very tricky team to defeat.

Rennes vs Metz Betting Tips:

  • Half Time Result: A Draw at 2.10 (11/10)
  • Under 2.5 goals at 1.67 (4/6).
