Rennes vs Montpellier Predictions & Analysis

Rennes and Montpellier are among the most in-form teams in the Ligue 1 right now. They are set to lock horns on Gameweek No 14 on Saturday evening at Roazhon Park.

Rennes moved up to the fifth place in the league table after an amazing streak of four victories and a draw in the last five games.

They have translated such form to the UEFA Europa Conference League as well and currently have eight victories and two draws in the last ten outings across competitions.

The latest victor brought the team’s best performance of the season as Bruno Genesio’s men demolished Lyon 4-1 on the home patch in the previous Ligue 1 round.

Rennes had 25 attempts in total and as many as 12 shots on target on the occasion. The team’s top scorer Gaetan Laborde bagged the opening goal of the game, his fifth of the season.

Montpellier will also enter this match on a high, following back-to-back clean sheet victories over Nantes and Nice in the last two rounds.

However, unlike their counterparts, Montpellier did not shine at all in their win at Nice, allowing the rivals 22 shots while registering no more than eight themselves.
