Rennes sees their second consecutive win for the French championship as a match against the unsatisfactory performance outside the home, where they have lost two of their last three clashes. In the last round, the team did a good performance, and even reached equality in the first stage, but did not show much consistency in the midfield, and ended up suffering a natural defeat away from home. Although his defense is not one of the best, the team has shown some improvement in this sector, adding up three goals conceded in the last three rounds. Playing in their domains, the club owns the fourth worst campaign, and in that condition has an average of one goal per game. 4-2-3-1 should be looking at the attack against Bourigeaud who attacked the away side.

After 8 wins, 5 draws and 10 losses, the visiting team is in 10th place, having won 29 points. In the last match, they lost to Nantes at home (0-3), after their previous match had lost out in a match against Amiens (3-1). This is a stronger team in their stadium, where they won 19 points, against only 10 in their games as a visitor.

Guingamp went undefeated for six rounds in the French Championship, having won two straight victories in that period but failed to keep pace, and now comes from three straight losses. The last of them occurred at home against Nantes in a game where they failed to create a good volume of opportunities, leaving them to be desired also in defensive terms, being then thrashed by the visitors, who scored three times in the second stage. As has been noted, once again, the offensive sector has been one of the team’s major problems since it has not been able to take the scoreline off eight times. For this duel, it is likely that the coach will organize the team in the 4-2-3-1, and this time can not count on Tabanou, who is suspended.
