Rennes vs Nice – Match Preview and Prediction

Rennes vs Nice – On Saturday night at Roazhon Park, Rennes and Nice square off in one of the more intriguing matches of Matchday No. 18 in French Ligue 1.

The hosts, who defeated Guingamp 2-0 in last weekend’s Coupe de France action, will be looking for their third straight victory in all competitions.

With a 3-1 victory over Clermont on the road at the close of the previous season, Rennes halted a three-game league losing streak.

As a result, Julien Stephan’s team moved up into the top ten in the Ligue 1 rankings. Now, they’ll be hoping to build on this momentum and defeat title-chasing Nice.

The French top flight’s tourists are a pleasant surprise this season. Nice has enjoyed a great first half of the season thanks to their solid defense, which has allowed only nine goals in 17 Ligue 1 matches.

Only five points separate the Italian manager Francesco Farioli’s club and second place in the league standings. Nevertheless, Nice has had difficulty scoring recently.

They have only one point from their past three league away games, and they beat Auxerre on penalties last weekend after a goalless draw in regulation time in the Coupe de France.

Rennes vs Nice – Betting Analysis

The home court edge has always been important in this contest. In their last 25 home games against Nice, Rennes has won 11, drawn eight, and lost six.

The last three games between these teams have ended in home wins, with Nice’s 2-0 win at Allianz Riviera in November. Both teams were accurate in six head-to-head meetings save one.

With top scorer Teremas Moffi picked up by Nigeria to replace injured Bayer Leverkusen star Victor Boniface, Nice may have significant problems when key attacking players go for the AFCON.

What are the best odds for the game?

Looking at the bookies’ prices on the WDW market, the win for Rennes is best priced at 2.52, a bet on a draw is 3.3 and betting on the win for Nice will get you 3.15. Those are the most competitive returns being offered right now.
