Rennes vs Nantes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Friday 31st January 2020
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park.
The Friday night game in France will take place between Rennes and Nantes. Rennes are at home and are in 3rd place they drew 1-1 against Nice in their last game but didn’t lose any ground on 2nd placed Marseille as they also drew.
Rennes are in the final position to qualify for the Champions League but 2nd place would give them automatic qualification and they won’t give up on that.
Overall form has been a mix but they have won 3 games from their last five and lost just once in almost six weeks. But one feels they need a little more consistency because Montpellier, Lyon and Nantes their opponents in this game are right behind them and could end their European dreams.
Home form is good winning 60% of their matches although they did lose their last league match here against Marseille.
Nantes are in 6th place and are 5 points behind their hosts. They have lost 2 out of their last three games coming into this game. A win could see them move into the top 5 and keep their European hopes alive.
Whilst the club have only won 40% of their games away the good news is that they come into this match having won their last 2 away games in a row after beating Nimes and Saint Etienne.
Rennes vs Nantes: Head to Head
- Last season this fixture ended 1-1.
- 6 of the past 8 meetings has seen both teams to score.
- There is a 70% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
Rennes vs Nantes: Prediction
Nantes have not won at Rennes since 2013 so that is against them although most games here end in draws. Rennes were on a 4 game wins in a row streak at home before Marseille stopped them and of course Nantes have picked up their form away from home.
This should be a very close game, but we are going for the home win and we think it will be a narrow one. Rennes have a lot of confidence at home and pace in their team and that could just be too much for this travelling Nantes side. For smaller stakes we will back the correct score.
Rennes vs Nantes: Bet Tips:
Rennes to beat Nantes at 2.10 (11/10)
Correct Score: Rennes to win 1-0 or 2-0 at 5.00 (4/1) and 8.00 (7/1).
