Reason For Reims vs Rennes Predictions

  • Rennes have won six of their last nine away games with 16 goals scored and five clean sheets along the way.
  • Reims have won just one of their last five home matches, a penalty victory following their 0-0 draw with Strasbourg in the cup.
  • Rennes are drawn with PSG for the least goals conceded on the road so far.

Rennes back on track following slip-up

Julien Stéphan described in great detail the magnitude of their Coupe de France quarter-final on Tuesday. After a fantastic run of form, Rennes had suffered two slip-ups against Lille (0-1) and Brest (0-0) so their match against fourth-tier Belfort was crucial. They put out a strong squad and won 3-0 and they’ll be looking for another victory here to get back on track.

Rennes currently sit 3rd in Ligue 1 and have their away form to thank for much of their success so far. Their most recent clash on the road was their 1-0 loss against 4th place Lille but this is just their second defeat in their last nine away games. They’ve won six of these nine with 16 goals scored and five clean sheets along the way. Rennes are drawn with PSG for the least goals conceded away from home this season.

Reims lacking at home

Reims are also in a dip at the moment but have struggled to get out of it, unlike Rennes. Despite finishing 2019 in 6th place, they now sit 10th with just one win in their last seven league games. They have generally been lauded for their fantastic defence this season but with twelve conceded in their last seven in all competitions, they look a shadow of their former selves. 

Reims’ home form has also been rather poor with just one penalty win, after a 0-0 draw, in their last five games at the Stade Auguste-Delaune II. In the league they have won just one of their last seven with them failing to score in three of these. Reims’ most recent match finished 3-0 in Strasbourg so there is a lot to be pessimistic about for Reims.

The visitors to edge this tight clash?

Rennes should be backing themselves here as they have generally been very good on the road this season. They currently have Lille just a single point behind them which should act as a good motivator for them and as a result we see them getting the three points. Despite Reims’ defence being below par recently, they have conceded more than one goal in just one of their last twelve home matches so we’re expecting this to finish 1-0 to Rennes.
