Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park (Rennes).

Rennes are the only team in the Ligue 1 that have hit the ground running with three wins out of three. The hosts have been on a stellar form so far, with their most recent match against Strasbourg on the road, finishing in a 2-0 scoreline. The squad also took revenge on the reigning champions in their previous clash at home by posting a 2-1 victory at the last blast of the whistle.

Despite picking up back to back wins right from the opening game, the visitors were at the losing end at home against Marseille who handed them a 2-1 defeat.

The away side have been far from at their best in their trips on the road and will have to put in the extra effort, as the inform Rennes are sizing up to be the favorites to clinch the win in this one.

Rennes vs Nice Head to head (h2h)

  • Three of their last five meetings have seen both teams share the spoils.

  • Only one out of their last three matchups have seen over 2.5 goals on the scorecards.
  • Both teams have got their names on the scoresheet thrice in their previous seven games.

Rennes vs Nice Prediction

The home team have been exerting their superiority in their Ligue 1 campaign so far and have found the back of the net five times while conceding just one. They are unbeaten in their last eight home games in the league as well and have been coming out on top in their previous five in a row.

Additionally, Nice have registered a win just once in their last three visits to this venue and no more than thrice in their previous fifteen.

Taking into account that Rennes took down the mighty Parisians in their last clash on home soil, the chances of avoiding a second consecutive defeat are definitely looking bleak for Nice.

The hosts have scored five goals so far, three of which came before the end of the first forty-five minutes. Considering that they have been consistent in slotting the ball home before the break, in their last four Ligue 1 home games too, an early goal for Rennes is surely inevitable.
