Nimes vs Rennes Match Preview

Nimes sit in the relegation zone after seeing troubled November and December, where they suffered seven losses in eight outings across competitions and earned just one Ligue 1 point along the way. They have picked it up early in 2020, though, and will hope to build on such performances as they host Rennes on Wednesday.

Crocodiles have beaten Tours (on penalties after a 2-2 draw) in Coupe de France and built on the success with a 2-0 win over similarly struggling Reims. However, building on such records now should prove much more of a task with visitors coming off as a very tough side to beat.

Rennes come into the match after a 0-1 loss to Marseille where a late goal from Kevin Strootman made all the difference, ending their two-match winning streak – where they beat Bordeaux (1-0) and Amiens (on penalties in Coupe de France). They’ve been scoring goals on the regular and took revenge for a 3-2 loss at Amiens seen beforehand, which promises them in a good mood.

Red and Blacks have conceded just one goal in their last three outings and will surely be hopeful they can build on such performances. Still, they’ve been conceding goals quite regularly on the road and could be forced into an exciting contest at Costieres Stadium once again.

We do feel they’ll still have what it takes to outgun the rivals and snatch all three points, as we back Rennes to win at 13/10 with William Hill, which has caught the eye of many in the know with Nimes’ struggles to escape the relegation zone.

We do feel Rennes will be given a run for their money, though, and with that in mind – we’re hoping to see goals. We’ll thus also go for a high-scoring occasion and Over 2.5 Goals FT, which comes at 13/10 with bet365 and looks like a solid approach to the fixture too.
