Troyes vs Rennes Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

The newly-promoted Troyes will be looking to kick off their Ligue 1 adventure brightly when they welcome Rennes at the Stade de l’Aube on Saturday evening. Troyes enter the fray on the back of a 2-1 home win over the fellow newcomers Amiens thanks to two first-half goals from Stephane Darbion and Bryan Pele. On the other hand, Rennes lost 4-2 at the hands of Lille despite the fact they had the lead twice thanks to goals from Ismaila Sarr and Firmin Mubele. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Troyes are eager to kick off their Ligue 1 adventure in a positive manner, and they should feel confident ahead of this tie as they have only lost once in their last 14 home games across all competitions. Meanwhile, Rennes were one of the worst away sides in Ligue 1 last season and their recent away form has seen them win just three of their last 14 away games across all competitions. I’m expecting goals as four of the last five meetings between these two sides have seen at least three goals scored. I’m also backing Troyes to maximize their home advantage and to pick up at least one point from this clash.

Troyes Preview

Troyes have had an impressive rise over the past few years as they were in the French third tier just two years ago. Last season, Troyes finished in third in the Ligue 2 table during the regular season and had to play against Lorient in the play-offs. They beat Lorient 1-2 on aggregate to book their place in Ligue 1 and will be looking to get off to a strong start in the French top tier. Troyes have enjoyed a strong pre-season as they have only lost once in their five friendlies. Overall, Troyes have only lost once in their last 13 games across all competitions, and are currently on a two-game winning streak. At home, Troyes have only lost once in their last 14 games across all competitions while winning eleven. Regarding transfers, Troyes brought in Bryan Pele and Oswaldo Vizcarrondo from Brest and Nantes on free transfers, while Saif-Eddine Khaoui joined the team on loan from Marseille. On the other hand, Thiago Xavier and Mour Paye both left the club on free transfers to join Valenciennes and Creteil respectively. Adama Niane has been phenomenal for Troyes last season as he was the Ligue 2’s top scorer with 23 goals under his belt and he is definitely a player to watch here.

Troyes Team News

There are no fresh injury concerns for Troyes ahead of this tie.

Rennes Preview

Meanwhile, Rennes had an impressive season last term, finishing in 9th spot in the standings, just nine points behind the Europa League places. Their pre-season campaign has been a complete mixed bag with two wins and two defeats in their four friendlies. They were on a two-game winning streak prior to their 4-2 loss at Lille in their most recent friendly. Rennes have sold a couple of players during the summer, but overall they have strengthened their squad as they have spent over €30 million. They brought in Ismaila Sarr from Metz, Faitout Maouassa from Nancy, Benjamin Bourigeaud from Lens, Brandon from Mallorca and Hamari Traore from Reims. Overall, they have a better squad than last season, but the bad news is that Rennes haven’t enjoyed a good run of form on the road over the past seven months. They have only won three of their last 14 away games across all competitions. In addition, Rennes have only won once in their last ten league games. Actually, they were one of the worst away teams in Ligue 1 last term, winning just two of their 19 league trips. The good news is that Rennes are undefeated in their last three visits to the Stade de l’Aube, scoring at least two goals in each of these.

Sanjin Prcic is a doubt, while Morgan Amalfitano is out through a thigh injury.
