French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 12th September 2021
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park.

Rennes are in 8th place but it hasn’t been a good start for the club who from 4 games has just 1 win. Their last match ended in a 2-0 defeat against Angers so they will be happy to be back at home at least.

At home they remain undefeated for now after a draw with Lens and victory against Nantes. Despite their stop start beginning to the season they have the chance to move into the top six with victory at the weekend.

Reims were suddenly the centre of the football worlds attention before the international break because their fixture with PSG was also the debut of Lionel Messi. Reims lost the game 2-0 but actually played some good football and the club will be happy with how they performed.

The worry for Reims is that they are in 17th place and are yet to win a game this season. However the loss to PSG was their first of the season and their other 3 games had ended in draws.

Rennes vs Reims: Prediction

These matches are always enjoyable to watch and both sides like playing each other. This is why we can see goals here. Both are decent sides on their day but both can show some naivety in defence at times.

Reims have played some good football but are just not getting the results at the moment. This is why we can see Rennes just edging through here, they have a bit more on the attacking side and after selling hot property Dia in the summer Reims have struggled to be more consistent and get the goals.
