Rennes Preview – Can the Red and Blacks continue their fine form on Friday?

Julien Stephan’s Rennes have been in sensational form of late. The Red and Blacks go into Friday night’s home clash having won eight of their last 11 in Ligue 1. In fact, since going seven league games without a win, drawing three and losing four, Rennes have dropped points in just three matches.

Incredibly, each of their previous six league wins have been by a one-goal margin. They recently beat Nimes 1-0 away from home, which they followed up with a 1-1 draw at Nice.

Our betting prediction:
Nantes clean sheet

(odds taken 1759 GMT, Wednesday 29 January)

Rennes have won six of their ten home games in Ligue 1 so far, while they have the third best away record in France’s top tier. They were beaten 1-0 by Marseille in their last home match, but Rennes won five in a row prior to that. Can the hosts return to winning ways on Friday?

Nantes Preview – The Canaries on the search for a third successive away league win

Christian Gourcuff’s Nantes have been in patchy form lately. The Canaries have taken one step forward and two steps back, winning five and losing five of their previous ten across all competitions.

In Ligue 1, Nantes have won four, lost three and drawn one of seven since a shocking four-game losing run from mid-October to mid-November. After taking nine points from a possible 12, the Yellow House were beaten at home by Bordeaux in their last Ligue 1 match.

Rennes vs Nantes Betting Advice

In the reverse Ligue 1 fixture at the Stade de la Beaujoire earlier in the season, an Abdoulaye Toure penalty was enough to give Nantes a 1-0 win. Things have been tight on the scoreline between these two in recent times, but Rennes have won seven and drawn five of the last 13. Nantes’ victory back in September was their first over Rennes since 2013.


Key Facts – Rennes vs Nantes Betting Tip

  • Rennes were beaten at home in Ligue 1 last time out for the first time since October
  • Nantes have won four of their ten away league matches this season
