Rennes vs Montpellier Match Preview and Prediction
Rennes vs Montpellier: After winning Ligue 1 against Lyon 2-3, Rennes will be looking to replicate their previous performance. Rennes had 37% possession in that game and three of their 11 shots on goal were on target. Désiré Doué (36′) and Martin Terrier (22′, 41′) scored goals for Rennes. Lyon, on the other hand, had 12 shots on goal, only two of which were on target. Lyon’s goals came from Henrique (57′) and Alexandre Lacazette (78′).
According to their most recent results, everything in the Rennes backline is proceeding as expected. With six games played, Rennes has allowed four goals to go past their goalkeeper. This is because they have not given much to the opponent. Apart from past outcomes, it’s unclear if this pattern will continue in the forthcoming game.
Montpellier and Lille drew 0-0 in their Ligue 1 matchup last time around; in that match, they had 40% of the possession in that game and 12 attempts on goal, all of which were missed. Lille also had twelve shots on goal, all of which were missed.
The Montpellier defence has been playing well lately, as evidenced by their current “goals against” total of 4 from their last 6 games. Their own forwards have managed to score eight goals in the same time frame.
Montpellier had not defeated Rennes in their previous eight league road games coming into this encounter. Not a particularly impressive away record.
