Nantes vs Rennes Prediction 20 April 2018

Tournament: French Ligue 1
Location: Stade de la Beaujoire Louis Fonteneau
Match date: 20.04.2018 at 18:30

On April 20 2018 at 18:30 at the Stade de la Beaujoire Louis Fonteneau in the forthcoming regular match of the 34th game week of the French national elite division Ligue 1 the local Nantes are playing against their guests Rennes.

Both Nantes and Rennes surprised their fans a lot in the previous matches and yet they didn’t do it in a positive way. The Canaries didn’t manage to outplay Dijon at home while the Red and Blacks lost to Metz, who are on the last place in the table, playing at home too. Both of them will obviously be eager to rehabilitate and considering the fact that their performance seems almost equal, we expect both of the teams to score at least once.

Nantes have been near the top of the table for some time and yet they started falling down lower and lower. At the moment they are on the 9th place in the table with 45 points gained. They are really careful at the moment and choose to concentrate on defense which isn’t surprising, considering the fact that Claudio Ranieri is their manager. If you remember the performance of his Leicester who won English Premier League, you may understand it.

Yet, in the latest matches their defense was far not as reliable as it used to be. They conceded in every one of the latest three games. Moreover, not long ago they lost to Saint-Etienne 0:3. And this time they will be visits by Rennes who scored at least once in all of their latest nine games in a row in the Ligue 1.

As for Rennes, they seem like strong middle-peasants of the national elite division during the last few years. The team can easily fight for the points even playing against the strongest teams of the championship. In the current season they are in the race of the places in the Euro Cups zone. Yet, they need to keep their sixth position for it.

There are 5 matches left to play in the French Ligue 1 and Rennes have 47 points. For example, Dijon, who are on the 12th position in the table, have 42 points. So, there are at least 7 teams which have actual chances to make it to the Europa League zone. As you see, Rennes will have to try very hard to keep their 6th position.

It’s very hard to predict who are going to win in the upcoming match. Both teams seem like the teams which can win playing against the leaders or lose playing against the outsiders. Anyway, all of the facts we have already mentioned make us think that both teams are going to score at least once in the upcoming match.
