Nice – Rennes : Preview & Prediction
The OGC Nice, wedged in the soft belly (11th) of this Ligue 1, can return to 5 lengths from Rennes, 3rd, in case of victory this Friday evening. The Aiglons have been unbeaten for more than a month and a half and they obtained their qualification for the 1 / 8th finals of the Coupe de France against the Red Star (2-1), a week after taking 1 point in Angers (1-1) in the league. Winners in Rennes (2-1) last September, the Niçois would sign well for a new success which would propel them close to European places. The Stade Rennais, installed on the podium, is 4 steps ahead of Nantes, 4th, and can grill a joker. The training of Stephan, winner of the 2019 French Cup, is still in the running in this competition after a qualification at Fos against Athlético Marseille (2-0) this Sunday in the 1/17 final thanks to goals from Traoré and Raphinha. Difficult winner at the Nîmes red lantern (1-0) during its last trip to the league, the Breton club could experience a different fate at the Allianz Riviera.
Nice has not lost since 8 games against Rennes (5 wins and 3 draws).
Nice has 3 successes and 1 draw during the last 4 receptions in Rennes.
