Rennes v Reims
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 4th October 2020
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park (Rennes).
Rennes have taken Ligue 1 by storm and are in 1st place the question is how long can they stay there?
They will be the odds on favourites to beat Reims given how strong they have been and how poor Reims have started. Rennes made a big statement last weekend when they came head to head with Saint Etienne to see who would lose their 100% record, playing away Rennes easily won the game and ran out 3-0 winners.
Currently Rennes have 13 points and have won their last 4 games in a row they are scoring just over 2 goals per game.
Reims look like they are in trouble and will be heading for Ligue 2 if they don’t turn around their form quickly. They are in 19th place and have just 1 point and only goal difference is keeping them from being bottom. After having such a successful last season where they qualified for the qualifiers of the Europa League this one has been a nightmare so far.
They have sold some key players including Axel Disasi to Monaco and in the qualifeirs for the Europa League they were knocked out so won’t even be playing European football this season.
They have lost 4 games in a row with their last match ending in a 2-0 defeat to PSG at home, and have scored just 3 goals this season.
Rennes vs Reims: Head to Head
Reims won this fixture last season winning 1-0.
In the league Reims have won the last 4 fixtures against Rennes.
Rennes have not beaten Reims since 2016.
Rennes vs Reims: Prediction
Reims have been very poor and points might only start to come in when they are at home. Away one would expect more misery for the club. And yet they do have some very good results over Rennes in recent years.
We don’t think this will continue this season and in this game as Rennes has stepped up a level, they have plenty of players that can cause damage to Reims and we will be backing the home side to get another win. With the way Reims have been playing it would be a surprise to see the club get anything on Sunday afternoon.
