Rennes vs Reims
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 28th October 2018
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park (Rennes).
The draw specialists will meet on Sunday afternoon and more than likely Rennes will be installed as the favourites to win this game as they are at home but there isn’t too much between the two sides.
Rennes are in 11th place and are just one point in front of their opponents Reims. They have at least gone their last 3 games unbeaten and last weekend they drew 1-1 away to Saint Etienne. They have been unspectacular so far but as usual quite solid and have defended well when needed.
Reims have drawn their last 3 games in a row and scored just 2 goals since the beginning of September. They have looked much uninspired and on this evidence they could be relegated. They will need to improve but doing so in this game will be very tough.
Away from home Reims have gone their last 4 games without a win and have gained 5 points from a possible 15. The worry for Reims is where are the goals going to come from?
Rennes vs Reims: Head to Head
- The last time the teams met here was in 2016 where Rennes won 3-1.
- Reims have won just 1 game at Rennes in the last 10 years.
- The last 3 games played at Rennes have all ended in over 2.5 goals.
Rennes vs Reims: Prediction
We should see a game full of life because both teams will feel that they can beat each other. That means gaps at the back and tactics won’t mean much when these two teams come together.
Our main pick is for the home team to win but we also think that Reims can cause problems and the value is good here to go with both teams to score.
The hosts just seem to have that extra bit of quality over Reims at this time, and will have much more possession of the ball.
