Rennes vs Strasbourg French Ligue 1 Predictions 6th May 2018

Rennes vs Strasbourg
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 6th May 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park (Rennes).

Rennes gave their top 5 hopes a boost with a 2-1 win over Toulouse last weekend and are just one point from St Etienne in 6th place. Rennes have been in decent form lately with just 1 loss in the past month but have been pegged back by too many matches ending in draws.

At home Rennes have been one of the most inconsistent sides in the league which has led to ‘home bankers’ losing and they have a poor record given that they are in 6th place. Their away record is actually slightly better.

Strasbourg in 16th place with 35 points could still be relegated which would be ironic given that they are only one of two teams that has beaten PSG in the league this season. The away side need another three points to feel safe and if they lose this game and other results don’t go their way, there is a big possibility that they could be sucked into the bottom three zone.

Strasbourg has the 2nd to worst away record in the league with just 2 wins all season gaining just 11 points from a possible 51.

Rennes vs Strasbourg: Head to Head

Rennes vs Strasbourg: Prediction

With Rennes in good form and having a good history over Strasbourg not to mention they are going for 5th place this seems like a banker bet that Rennes will get the win. But you never quite know with Rennes what will happen at home so go for minimum stakes.
