Rennes vs Nimes
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 22nd December 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park (Rennes).

Rennes come into this game in 11th place and have won back to back games in a period of time which has seen the club pick up 8 points from their last 15.

The home side will fancy their chances in this match against the newly promoted Nimes and if they win this game they could climb firmly into the top 10. Although home form has not been great where they have won just 1 game in their past five and overall this season they have just 3 wins from 8 matches.

Nimes lost last time out to Lille in a 3-2 defeat which was unfortunate as that game signalled the end of a 3 game winning run which recounted the teams early brilliant form.

What has been a surprise is that Nimes have performed better away from home, where they have picked up 14 points meaning they are the 4th best team in the league on the road. They have also won their last 3 games in a row in beating such teams as Dijon, Strasbourg and Caen.

Rennes vs Nimes: Head to Head

Incredibly this is the first match to be played against the two teams.

Rennes vs Nimes: Prediction

This should be an enjoyable match that could play out like a cup game and the reason for this is how close the teams are to each other in the league. Both teams are capable of scoring and we expect a high scoring match and both sets of attacking players will capitalise on leaky defences. Our main bet will be to see more goals in the 2nd half as legs get tired and focus will not be the same, we will also go for the correct score for smaller stakes.
