Nantes Prediction

Nantes have produced mixed results in recent weeks which reflects their current mid-table position of 11th place having recorded wins over Marseille and Montpellier at home but have also tasted defeat at Saint-Etienne and PSG along with a 1-1 draw at home with Angers.

However, turn to Nantes’ results at home and you’ll find the hosts are currently enjoying a rich vein of form as they’ve picked up four wins from their last five on home turf with wins gained over Toulouse, Guingamp, Marseille and Montpellier.

As a result of this upturn in form, Nantes now hold an improved home record of 4-3-2 18/9 which is a vast improvement upon their start to this season which saw them without a win from their first four home matches of the season.

Midfielder Boschilia (4 goals) and striker Sala (12 goals) are the key goal threats for the hosts here.

Key-Facts – Nantes v Rennes

    • Nantes have picked up four wins from their last five on home turf
    • Nantes have kept 4 clean sheets from their 9 home matches to date
    • Rennes are unbeaten in their last five away matches

Rennes Prediction

Rennes are also enjoying an improved run of results in the French top flight as they go in search of a fourth consecutive win in Ligue 1 following recent wins over Lyon, Dijon and Nimes, winning 2-0, 2-0 and 4-0 respectively.

The visitors will therefore possess a fair amount of confidence as they make their way to Nantes especially as Rennes have put together a promising run of five matches without defeat on their travels which includes wins at Monaco, Caen and Lyon along with points at Saint-Etienne and Montpellier in 1-1 and 2-2 draws.

An away record of 3-3-3 14/14 has therefore received a recent boost and they’ll fancy their chances of getting something from this mid-table encounter with the likes of midfielders Bourigeaud and Ben Arfa (4 goals apiece) along with forwards Sarr (5 goals) and Siebatcheu (3 goals).

Betting Tips Verdict

With both Nantes and Rennes in solid form, we could see a value priced draw here.
