Toulouse Fc vs Rennes: Preview & Prediction
The 30th day of the Ligue 1 will be a real turning point for the Toulouse Football Club, but also for the Stade Rennais. These two teams no longer have many wildcats in the race to Europe.
Before that day, Toulouse were 2 points behind the Rennes, but also 9 laps behind Marseille, 5th. On the way, the TFC had been beaten in Brittany, 1 goal to 0.
Toulouse has been trampling for a few weeks (3 draws and 1 defeat) and the defeat in Lyon, 4 goals to 0, hurt the head. Pascal Dupraz remobilized his troops this week not to finish in the anonymity of the Ligue 1 and to try to reconnect with the victory before a difficult calendar, in Montpellier, ahead Marseille, Guingamp, against the OGC Nice, to Monaco …
A counter-performance in front of Rennes and Toulouse could quickly plunge into the second part of the table. At home, Toulouse have not lost since three games, two successes in front of SCO Angers and SC Bastia and a draw against Lille (1-1).

Rennes can logically hope to hang points in the pink city and besides, the Bretons were beaten only once during the last 9 days, it was on the lawn of Olympique de Marseille (0- 2).
Rennes have had good performances since the return to the Vélodrome, a successful home before FC Lorient (1-0) and an interesting draw in Metz (1-1). Striked last week at Roazhon Park by FC Dijon (1-1), Rennes has to get points at the Stadium to stay in ambush in the race to Europe.
