Strasbourg are going through a difficult phase at the beginning of the French Championship, having only two wins in twelve rounds, and now comes another defeat, which has interrupted an unbeaten four matches. At the time, the team failed to create many chances and left to be desired in defensive terms, suffering then a thrashing away from home against Troyes. As was evident in this match, the defensive sector has been largely responsible for the team’s disastrous campaign since it was not leaked in just one game so far, and now has the second worst defense of the competition. However, the attack has been trying to do its part, so much so that it is the sixth most complete, although lack precision. For this duel, the coach will not have at his disposal the striker Da Costa, who is suspended.
The visiting team is currently in 10th place with 15 points earned after 4 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses. In the penultimate match, he won out to Montpellier by (0-1).

Rennes did not make a good start to the French championship, having won their first win in the fifth round, and even after that, they had two consecutive defeats. However, the club seems to have managed to react and now comes from three wins in a row, when it did not concede a goal. In their last clash, the team played a game of few chances against Bordeaux, and secured the victory with a goal against defender Toulalan. In this sequence of positive results, the team added only three goals, which shows that their attack is not one of the best, having stopped shaking the net adversary in three games. As a visitor, the club has been making a medium campaign, accumulating two defeats, two victories and two draws in that condition. The right-back Traoré has been one of the great highlights of the team.
