Rennes have been having some early struggles in Ligue 1 this season with only one victory recorded.

There’s a tricky game for them to come in midweek and they will be feeling some pressure for the visit of Clermont.

The newly-promoted Clermont have made a very solid start to their top-flight campaign, and pose a threat.

Rennes Preview – Can Rennes stop the rot?

It has been three straight league defeats for Rennes in Ligue 1 in their most recent form.

Overall they have taken a W1 D2 L3 record from their six matches.

After an excellent sixth-place finish in last season’s campaign, they haven’t found their gear yet.

In the match outright, the win for Rennes is at a quote of 19/20 to bank the win* (odds recorded 20:05 GMT on 20th September 2021).

So far on home turf this season, they have earned a W1 D1 L1 record.

The notable thing about their drop in form has been their lack of threat in front of goal.

Rennes have failed to score in their last three league games, all of which have ended in a 2-0 defeat.

There have been only three league goals scored this season by Rennes.

So it is that lack of output that raises a question mark about them, despite their favouritism in football betting.

* (odds recorded 20:05 GMT on 20th September 2021)


This is the first time that Rennes will have hosted Clermont in the league, so there is no head to head to look at.

The only time they have previously met was in a League Cup match back in 2007, in which Rennes prevailed 1-0.

With none of Rennes’ home games going above the 2.5 goal line this season, it’s probably worth swinging under.

Under 2.5 goals is at a quote of 10/11 for football betting* (odds recorded 20:05 GMT on 20th September 2021).

Including their 2-2 draw against Tottenham in the UEFA Conference League last week, Rennes have now conceded exactly two goals in each of their last four games in all competitions.


Clermont Preview – Can Clermont take their chance?

Clermont seems to be enjoying themselves and handing themselves up in the top flight.

This is a big season for them and they have kicked Ligue 1 life off very well.

Clermont are W2 D3 L1 this season. Notably, the only team to have beaten them is PSG.

Clermont arena quote of 14/5 in the match outright for football betting* (odds recorded 20:05 GMT on 20th September 2021).

There has been a really positive output from Clermont in front of goal.

They have scored at least two goals in four of their six league fixtures.

It was back to back wins for them at the start of the season over Bordeaux and Troyes.

It has been a winless streak of D3 L1 for them since then, but still, they continue in decent shape.

Away from home they are W1 D1 L1 and scored at least two goals in two of those three fixtures.

Again, the only blight on their copybook was a 4-0 loss at PSG.

So the visitors have reasonable claims here.

Clermont have had Elbasan Rashani score four of their last six league goals, so he’s in great nick at the moment.

There is a 5/1 quote on Rashani in the anytime goalscorer market* (odds recorded 20:05 GMT on 20th September 2021).

He has been a big influence for them.

The one concern for Clermont is the recent lack of clean sheets. There has not been one in any of their last four.

But to their credit, they look to be a positive outfit and have a chance on Wednesday.


Rennes vs Clermont Betting Advice

The away win does have some appeal here as Clermont have adapted well to life in the top flight.

They have not come up short in front of goal, something Rennes have done this season.

So the away win at 14/5 is worth a play perhaps* (odds recorded 20:05 GMT on 20th September 2021).


Key Facts – Rennes vs Clermont Betting Tip

  • Rennes have lost their last three league games
  • Rennes will host Clermont for the first time
  • Clermont’s only league defeat this season has been to PSG


Clermont have been the more positive of the two and just look the more likely to take any chances that come their way.

Rennes have been out of sorts averaging 0.5 goals per game this season.

They are under stress right now with a three-match league losing streak going.

Under 2.5 goals look the best play at 10/11* (odds recorded 20:05 GMT on 20th September 2021).
