The Ligue 1 fixture at Roazhon Park on Friday will see home side Rennes do battle with opponents Nantes.

Our feeling is that Nantes will need things to go their way to score goals against this Rennes outfit who should end up scoring and possibly keep a clean sheet as well. We’ve gone for a good battle with a 1-0 winning margin for Rennes when all is said and done. There should be little in it.

A look at their previous results shows us that FC Nantes:

  • have not won against Stade Rennais FC when having played them away from home in the previous 5 matches in the league. Not good.
  • have not been beaten in their last 2 away league matches.

⚽️ What was the result last time these teams played each other in this competition?

The previous league clash featuring these clubs was Ligue 1 match day 7 on 25/09/2019 which finished with the scoreline of FC Nantes 1-0 Stade Rennais FC. In that game, FC Nantes managed 44% possession and 8 attempts at goal with 2 shots on target. Their only player to score was Abdoulaye Touré (77'). Stade Rennais FC got 6 shots on goal with 2 on target. The referee was Antony Gautier.

Team Focus:

Formed: 1901
Stadium: Roazhon Park (29,778)
Captain: Damien Da Silva
Chairman: Olivier Létang
Manager: Julien Stéphan
Competitions: Ligue 1 position 3, Coupe De France (1/8 Finals)

Key Player: Raphinha

Generally taking up the Left Wing position, Raphinha was born in Brazil. After having made a senior debut playing for Vitória Guimarães in the 2015 - 2016 season, the dangerous Forward has scored a sum of 3 league goals in this Ligue 1 2019 - 2020 campaign so far from a total of 16 appearances.

⚽️ Verdict: We’ve gone for a good battle with a 1-0 winning margin for Rennes when all is said and done. There should be little in it.
