Rennes – Nimes : Preview & Prediction
The terrible Nîmes will challenge Rennes this Sunday, as part of the 26th day of the championship. Now 17th after a magnificent series of four consecutive victories (Monaco, Dijon, Nice, Angers), the Gardois will try to win at least a draw, against Rennais who sail in troubled waters in recent weeks. With the lake gone, the Breton club have won only one of their last 4 games, against Belfort fans in the Coupe de France. Beaten by Lille and Reims and kept in check by Brest over the last three days of Ligue 1, the current third in the ranking are no longer as serene as they were some time ago, and could pay dearly for the upheavals observed internally. In a match that we imagine with at least one goal, it is difficult to see how Julien Stéphan’s protégés could slap the Nimes, who have one of the best dynamics of the moment.
In the first leg, Rennes won with difficulty at Costières (0-1).
Nîmes has won its last 4 games. Including those facing Nice and Monaco, please.
Rennes have not won any of their last three league games.
Rennes have won “only” 7 of its 12 home games this season. For a podium club …
All competitions combined, Nîmes has lost only one of its last 9 games by more than a goal difference.
Rennes have not won any of their last 13 L1 games by more than one goal.
Only one 0-0 is to be noted over the last 20 games of Rennes in Ligue 1.
Same stat for Nîmes: only 0-0 over the last twenty games of NO in L1.
In a match that will see at least one goal, we assume that Nîmes will not crash in mid-flight on the lawn of Roazhon Park.
