Montpellier vs Rennes Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Montpellier will look to extend their unbeaten streak in Ligue 1 to six games when they welcome Rennes at the Stade de la Mosson on Saturday night. Montpellier won 0-1 on the road at Saint-Etienne thanks to an early winner from Isaac Mbenza. Meanwhile, Rennes won 1-0 at home over Lille, with Benjamin Bourigeaud scoring the winner after just six minutes.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Montpellier looked solid on home soil throughout this campaign and they also hold an impressive head-to-head home record over Rennes. I expect them to secure another victory here after they managed to hold PSG to a nil-nil draw and to beat Nice 2-0 in their most recent two home league fixture.

Montpellier Preview

Montpellier extended their unbeaten streak in Ligue 1 to five games at the weekend as they managed a narrow 0-1 away victory at Saint-Etienne. They looked incredibly solid at the back during this run, having kept four clean sheets in five league games. Montpellier currently sit 8th in the Ligue 1 table tied on 15 points with the 9th-placed Caen, just three points behind the top five. Their solid defence has been the secret for their impressive performances throughout this campaign as they hold the best defensive record in the division with just six goals conceded in ten games. However, they haven’t been that prolific at the other end of the field, scoring just eight goals this season. Isaac Mbenza and Souleymane Camara are the team’s joint topscorers at the moment with two goals each. On home soil, Montpellier were on a three-game winless streak in Ligue 1 prior to their 2-0 victory over Nice in their most recent home league fixtures. The impressive thing is that Montpellier are undefeated in the last six home meetings with Rennes in Ligue 1, keeping five clean sheets in the process.

Montpellier Team News

Jerome Roussillon is the only doubtful player for Montpellier ahead of this game.

Rennes Preview

Rennes, on the other hand, have finally returned to winning ways in Ligue 1 at the weekend as they beat the lowly Lille 1-0 at home. In addition, it was the first time this season when Rennes managed to keep a clean sheet. However, Rennes still have one of the leakiest defences in the division with 15 goals conceded in ten rounds. Rennes find themselves in 15th in the Ligue 1 table tied on nine points with other three teams, including the 18th-placed Strasbourg. Away from home, Rennes were unbeaten in three games across all competitions prior to their 2-0 defeat at Guingamp in their most recent league trip. The most worrying fact is that Rennes are winless in their last six visits to the Stade de la Mosson, having scored just once in the process. The good news is that Rennes managed to collect four points from their two meetings with Montpellier last season, conceding just one goal in this term. Benjamin Bourigeaud has impressed since his arrival from Lens this summer as he is now the team’s topscorer with four goals and one assist in his ten league appearances.

Rennes Team News

Namakoro Diallo, Yoann Gourcuff, Sanjin Prcic, Morgan Amalfitano, Kermit Erasmus, Jordan Tell, Edvinas Gertmonas, Benjamin Bourigeaud and Edson Antre Sitoe Mexer are all doubts, while Ismailla Sarr is out through an ACL injury.
