Angers – Rennes : Preview & Prediction
The SCO of Angers, wedged in the soft belly of the classification, will challenge Stade Rennais, 3rd, for a place in the quarter-final of this Coupe de France. The Angevin club has just obtained the draw in Marseille (0-0) this Saturday after having chosen an ultra defensive tactic. It is the 3rd draw during the 4 days of Ligue 1 after the receptions of Monaco (0-0) and Nice (1-1). Winner outside Dieppe (3-1) and Rouen (4-1) in the previous two rounds, Angers will have trouble recording a new qualification against a Rennes team on a good dynamic. The Bretons, who took 1 point in Nice (1-1) this Friday evening, continue their good series after the victories in Nîmes (1-0) and on the field of Athlético Marseille (2-0) in 1 / 16th finals of this Coupe de France. After having released Amiens (0-0, 5 tab 4) and Athlético Marseille (2-0) in their first two rounds, Stade Rennais aligned an 8th consecutive qualification since Stephan’s training triumphed in the final against PSG (2-2, 6 tab 5) last season.
Rennes has not lost to Angers since July 2013.
The Breton club is on an ongoing series of 8 wins and 4 draws in its last 12 duels against the SCO.
Rennes won this Coupe de France last season.
Angers remains on 3 games without a win (2 draws and 1 draw) at the Raymond Kopa stadium.
Rennes travels well: 4 victories and 1 draw during its last 6 trips, all competitions combined.
With 12 undefeated matches against Angers, Stade Rennais is in a strong position to validate its ticket for the quarters.
