Rennes vs Nice Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Rennes and Nice will be facing each other at the Roazhon Park on Sunday afternoon, with both teams looking to build on their recent victories in Ligue 1. Rennes enter the fray high on confidence following their 1-3 victory at Marseille last time out, with Wahbi Khazri, Benjamin Bourigeaud, and Joris Gnagnon all getting on the scoresheet. Meanwhile, Nice won 4-0 at home over Monaco thanks to a brace from Mario Balotelli and two other goals from Alassane Plea and Igniatius Ganago. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

With both teams high on confidence following their recent victories in Ligue 1, we are expecting an entertaining affair in this one, mostly due to the fact that Nice have allowed at least two goals in four of their last six away games across all competitions. On the flip side, Rennes have netted at least two goals in three of their last five home competitive fixtures.

Rennes Preview

Rennes have finally picked up their first victory of the season last weekend and they did that in fashion by beating Marseille 1-3 away from home. Prior to this result, Rennes only managed two draws and two defeats in four games. The good news is that the new loan-signing from Sunderland Wahbi Khazri managed to score a screamer in the victory. Rennes are now in 14th in the Ligue 1 table tied on five points with Troyes and Lille, just one point behind their Sunday’s opponents. Despite the fact they have struggled for consistency in this early part of the season, Rennes did well to score nine goals in five rounds, which is an improvement as they were among the lowest goalscorers in Ligue 1 last term. Firmnin Mubele and Benjamin Bourigeaud have been Rennes’ most prolific players in front of goal so far this season, as the pair bagged five goals and two assists between them. Their recent home form has let them down, but they have been a strong side in front of their own fans last season. In addition, Rennes have only won once in their last five home meetings with Nice in Ligue 1 and are winless in the most recent games.

Rennes Team News

Jordan Tell, Yoann Gourcuff and Edson Andre Sitoe Mexer are all doubts, but Gerzino Nyamsi, Ramy Bensebaini, Anthony Ribelin and Abdoulaye Diallo are all back in training.

Nice Preview

On the contrary, Nice’s form throughout this 2017/18 competitive season has been a complete mixed bag with three wins, five defeats and two draws in their last ten games across all competitions. However, Nice have revived themselves last weekend as they managed an incredible 4-0 home victory over Monaco and followed this up with an impressive 1-5 away win at Waregem in their Europa League midweek clash. Alassane Plea and Mario Balotelli have been played a vital role in Nice’s performances in these two games, as the pair bagged six goals and one assist in the process. Nice currently sit in 11th spot in the Ligue 1 table tied on six points with Guingamp and Amiens, already five points behind the top three. Away from home, Nice have suffered defeats in each of their two away games in Ligue 1 so far this season, but they did well to pick up a comfortable 1-5 victory on the road at Waregem in their most recent trip. The good news is that Nice are undefeated in the last three meetings with Rennes in Ligue 1, scoring at least two goals in two of these.

Nice Team News

Mounir Obbadi, Wesley Sneijder and Mickael Le Bihan are all doubts, but Wylan Cyprien is out through a cruciate ligament injury.
