Rennes form and stats

Rennes have collected 21 points from their Ligue 1 home games so far after 6-3-6.

The home team returns to Roazhon Park after being equal after 90 minutes with Reims (placed 12th) on their last time out; the Ligue 1 game ended 0-0. In the game before, an away victory match versus Metz with a 3-1 scoreline.

The hosts are favourites to win this game, with an estimated chance of about 55-60% of that outcome. Earlier Rennes matches with similar probabilities have ended with zero wins, one draw and two defeats (from three games).

Rennes has scored 17 league goals at home this season, in 15 matches. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 2 of these goals has been scored in their last three home matches. On the other hand, Rennes have conceded 19 goals.

Nantes form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Nantes so far with only 14 points returning home. The records show 3-5-7 (win-draw-lose).

Home advantage was not enough for Nantes in their previous game, as they lost their Ligue 1-match, hosting Nice, 1-2. Ahead of that game was the 1-1 draw at home against Lorient.

It's a bit worrying for Nantes that their goalkeeper Alban Lafont made six saves in the Nice game last time out, but still couldn't prevent the loss.

Nantes are scoring more than one goal per away game on average, having accumulated 16 away goals from 15 games (in the league). Nantes's defence is not exactly unbeatable as they have conceded 23 goals from these trips.

Head 2 Head

The most recent history between these sides is the Nantes - Rennes 0-0 played earlier this season. Head-to-head totals (for the last ten meetings): Rennes won five games, four matches ended with a draw and Nantes has one win. Over 2,5 goals / under 2,5 goals: four / six
