Rennes vs Metz: Preview and Predictions

Rennes vs Metz
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 14th April 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park (Rennes).

Rennes are in 5th place which is being hotly contested as it is the last place for a European spot. Form has been good where they have gone over a month unbeaten but they are drawing too many games and if that continues they can kiss goodbye to finishing in the top 5. On Saturday evening they will get the chance to play the team in bottom place Metz and Rennes will be expected to win.

Rennes have lost 1 game at home in their last five matches and gone 3 games unbeaten at Roazhon Park. Though they come into this game having drawn their last two games here.

Metz lost 5-0 to Lyon at home last week and even though they are not officially relegated it does seem a matter of time. They are now 8 points from safety with just 6 games left to play. Any confidence would have taken a huge blow with the Lyon loss and now they will travel east across France for this game.

Metz have won just one game this year and away from home they have the 2nd worst record in the league with just 2 wins all season. They are currently letting in 2 goals a game away from home.

Rennes v Metz: Head to Head

  • Metz have no wins from the last 12 meetings
  • When at home Rennes have won the last 5 games
  • 4 of the last 5 games played at Rennes have ended in under 2.5 goals

Rennes vs Metz: Prediction

Rennes should have too much for a weary Metz who have a terrible record here and the home side should ease to a victory in the hope of European football next season.
