Rennes vs Montpellier
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 19th May 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park (Rennes)
Rennes can officially seal 5th place and a direct Europa League qualification with a draw in this match. The club are in 5th and have 57 points and are three clear of Nice.
Rennes will be confident of the win given that they have found great form lately having won their last 3 in a row. But it is their last game that has had all of France talking, when they went to Paris to face the champions PSG and beat them on a 2-0 margin. If truth be told PSG have had switched off for the season but it was still a terrific result and means that the only side to beat PSG this season in Paris was Rennes.
Home form has not been great for Rennes who have lost 7 this season, but in the last few months they have improved this record and have lost just 1 game in that time, they have won back to back home wins coming into this game.
Montpellier are in 9th place on 50 points and even a win means very little as they will not be able to qualify for Europe. A win over Nantes and a draw against Troyes which was disappointing at home did stop a 3 game losing streak but the club have not been at the races for the past few months, ever since they knew they were safe in Ligue 1.
Rennes vs Montpellier: Head to Head
- From the last 6 meetings Montpellier have just 1 victory
- 3 of the last 5 meetings has ended 1-0 to Rennes
- Montpellier have not beaten Rennes away from home in 4 years
Rennes vs Montpellier: Prediction
Our bet here is to see Rennes to win this game. They have upped their football and they have something to play for. The team are not only in good form but they have a very good record over Montpellier who this weekend will have nothing to play for. For us this will be a solid home win.
