Rennes vs Nice
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 14th April 2019
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park (Rennes).
Four matches without a win means that Rennes European hopes have been dashed and there is simply too many points and too many clubs between them for the club to make an impact now. They are 8 points from 4th but with games running out it has become a mountain for the club to climb. Their latest loss came away to Nimes when they went down 3-1.
Rennes have been decent at home this season although they lost their last game here 1-0 against Lyon. A win would take Rennes back into the top 10.
Nice were the only Ligue 1 team from the top 8 to win a game last weekend and they will want to build on that after inconsistancy has crept into their game and stolen valueable points.
But the club have gone 3 games without defeat and a win here would put them in contention to finish in a Europa League spot. Nice actually have the 5th best away record in the league and their 1-0 win over Dijon ended a 4 game losing streak on the road.
Nice’s biggest problem away from home is that they have only scored 10 goals all season. Even Caen have scored more on the road this season and they are in 19th place.
Rennes vs Nice: Head to Head
Earlier this season in the reverse game Nice won 2-1.
Last season this fixture ended 1-0 to Nice.
3 from the last 4 fixtures have seen both teams to score.
Rennes vs Nice: Prediction
This is a risky choice but we believe that Rennes can come good and get the win. Extra training was set up earlier this week and the team will want to experiement with a different formation, if Nice have not done their home work they could get a surprise and of course it is a long away trip for the team. Nice have been the better of the two sides this season but Rennes may be able to use the wings to open up Nice and we will back the home victory in this game.
