Nantes vs Rennes – Ligue 1: In one of the two matches being played this Friday in
France, counting towards the 34th round of Ligue 1.
The local side Nantes and the visiting side Rennes face off in the city of Nantes, at the La Beaujoire Stadium.
On this match that is the 2nd encounter between these two teams this season, with their previous meeting ending with a 2-1 win for Rennes, at home.
The home side, managed by Claudio Ranieri, comes into this match making a campaign that I think is positive on these 33 rounds that they’ve played so far.
Being on an interesting 9th place with 45 points, still having clear chances of reaching the European qualification zone (in this case, the Europa League’s spots), only having a 1-point disadvantage to that 5th place.
The team has one of the best defensive records of the competition but not so much on the offensive level, scoring less than 1 goal per match and conceding a little bit over a goal per match, on average.
The visiting side, in turn, comes into this match in a 5th place that, if confirmed, would see them returning to the European competitions, although that is far from being certain at this point, due to the fact that they have the same points as Nice and still have several teams pursuing them.
The team has 42 goals scored and 40 goals conceded, coming off a less positive streak of results (only 1 victory on their last 5 matches).
Nantes vs Rennes – Betting Tip and Prediction:
With a Rennes that is a team with a lot of goals scored and conceded, and upon a Rennes that is also coming off a streak of matches with some goals (only 1 of their last 5 matches had less than 2 goals).
I believe that this match will be an exciting match and with some goals, even because that matters for both clubs, who are still fighting for European qualification.
