Reason For Nantes vs Rennes Predictions

Rennes suffered yet another draw on Sunday as they failed to get past a good Lille side. This match followed their disappointing 1-1 draw with Celtic in the Europa League so they’ll be hoping to get three points in this match. Rennes will be happy to be back on the road for this one, as two of their three wins this season have come away from home. They are still to concede away from home in the league.

Rennes also have a terrific record against Nantes that they’ll be eager to continue here as they have won three and drawn two of their last five clashes with the Canaries. As much as Rennes have only conceded four goals so far, they have rather poor xGA numbers, which suggests that they have been conceding quite a few chances, something they’ll be aiming to stamp out here. 

Nantes had been on a run of three consecutive wins before their match with Strasbourg last weekend but it all came to a halt as the Alsatians scored late on to take all three points. Nantes had been putting together a bit of a reputation for their defence but they conceded twice in Strasbourg and had an xGA of 1.85. 

Nantes have been the third worst team in the league this season for chance creation as they have an xG of just 4.57. They have scored six goals so far, which is alright, but if they don’t start to consistently create chances of quality, the goals could start to dry up. 

Nantes will be hoping that their incredible home form can get them something out of this match. They have lost just one of their last eight home games but with Rennes also quite good on the road, we’re backing a draw here. Nantes weren’t great in their last match but the Stade Beaujoire should give them a boost here against serial draw merchants Rennes. As much as Nantes haven’t won any of the last five of these matches, they have always been tight and as a result we’re backing this one to end 1-1. Four of the last five clashes have seen both teams score.
