Rennes – Nice: Preview & Prediction
Brittany will be boiling this weekend because all the people of Rennes are waiting for a confirmation before OGC Nice, one of the leaders of the Ligue 1.
Still behind the best, Rennes has invested this season to straighten the bar and to stick to the leading teams. Currently, the Rennais are behind on their marching table, but the victory in Marseille could serve as a trigger.
Rennes has made interesting performances on the first few days, but the Rennes have always missed the mark. They were narrowly beaten at home by Lyon (1-2) and almost lost a win in Troyes (1-1) and ahead of FC Dijon (2-2).
Rennes unlucky on the offensive, but after a frustrating defeat in Toulouse (2-3), the Britons won the Velodrome, 3 goals to 1 and with style.
It is true that Rennes is deprived of several players, Mexer, Gourcuff, Bensebaini Diallo, Ribelin, Tell … but the Britons can count on offensive players very fast and snappy as Ismaila Sarr Ndombe Mubele …
Moreover, Rennes has just recovered Whalid Khazri and against Marseille, he made a very big performance. It could bring this added value which the Rennes lacked.
The reception OGC Nice will not be obvious, but the Eaglets could also lack “punch” after their match of the European Cup in Zulte Waregem on Thursday.
Be careful, the Nice have just returned two beautiful copies, as they humiliated AS Monaco (4-0) and Zulte Waregem in the Europa League (5-1). Unfortunately, in Belgium, the Aiglons had to line up their team type with Plea, Balotelli, Seri, Mendy …
The OGC Nice could therefore lack freshness this Sunday especially as the Rennes are in shape and ready physically. Outside, Lucien Favre’s men remain on two failures in Ligue 1, at Saint Etienne (0-1) and at Amiens (0-3).
In other words, it would be wise to bet on a victory in Rennes. The rating is beautiful!
