Rennes Prediction

Rennes will still be riding the crest of a wave following their resounding 3-1 home win over Arsenal in the first leg of their round of 16 tie against the London club in the Europa League, and although this game follows on in quick fashion from midweek, the players will be on a high and will want to keep their momentum going here.

That win over Arsenal became Rennes’ third win from their last four matches in all competitions as they’d previously posted wins against Real Betis away from home in the Europa League along with a Coupe de France 2-0 home win over Orleans.

It’s back to Ligue 1 action this Sunday though and the hosts will be keen to return to winning ways following a 2-0 loss away at Reims and a point against 4th placed Marseille in a 1-1 draw although the latter would be considered a good result.

Rennes hold a home record of 6-4-3 18/12 and form at their Roazhon Park has been very solid in recent weeks as the hosts are unbeaten in their last six matches on home turf. This promising run of results include wins over Dijon, Nimes, Amiens and Saint-Etienne, and the hosts have also kept five clean sheets out of these last six matches too.

 

Key-Facts – Rennes v Caen

  • Rennes are unbeaten in their last 6 matches at home in Ligue 1
  • Rennes have kept 5 clean sheets in their last 6 home matches
  • Caen are without a win in Ligue 1 from their last 9 matches overall

 

Caen Prediction

Caen sit in the relegation zone ahead of their trip to Rennes having now gone nine matches without a win in Ligue 1 which has left them a significant seven points adrift of fourth from bottom club Monaco and safety ahead of this Sunday’s action in the French top flight.

Six defeats within this nine-match sequence certainly hasn’t helped Caen’s cause as they desperately seek a way to break out of this dismal run of results, having suffered defeats to Lille, Marseille, Montpellier, Amiens, Nantes and PSG.

A poor away record of 1-6-6 10/18 has also contributed to their current poor league position, and although they recorded a 2-0 win away at Dijon earlier in the season, the visitors have since slumped to 10 away matches without a win on the road.

Betting Tips Verdict

Rennes will be keen to press home their advantage here against a poor Caen outfit who just can’t win away from home for love nor money.
