Rennes vs Nantes Prediction & Betting tips
Both teams will solve their game last weekend and will be eager to retake. Which team will succeed best?
Good play is not always rewarded with points, as the football players from Stade Rennes noticed last week. After a worthless first half, the team got a 0-1 score and then Sabri Lamouchi’s team was able to settle in the second half and really beat RC Strasbourg on almost all fronts, except in the field of scoring. . Despite a hour of play, Lamouchi’s team managed to keep the opponent under control, 2-0 lead with a man. A late final offensive was no longer useful and the team lost for the first time in five games again.
Abdoulaye Diallo started as a goalkeeper of Les Rouges and Noirs but it is not in line with the expectations that he can win this position thanks to his Czech teammate Tomas Koubek. Koubek excelled despite the fact that he was allowed to fish in the match against RC Strasbourg. Including two good saves in the first half, he kept his team in the game and the rest of the story is known. At Stade Rennes they have some good experiences with Czech goalkeepers, years ago Petr Cech from the team from Normandy and now seems to have had a good successor with his younger compatriot Koubek.
As the eleventh team in the French league, the Nantes of Claudio Ranieri lost this season to the powerful PSG. For more than half an hour, Les Canaris’s much-praised defense clashed with the most expensive attack in the world, but then went on with a 2-0 deficit. In the second half, after returning to 2-1, the team was still alive and then had to serve as cannon fodder for the Parisians. By standing with too much man behind the ball, the men of Ranieri had little more to bring in the continuation of the game and were happy with ‘only’ a 4-1 final score.
The most striking player on the side of Les Canaris was Préjuce Nakoulma, the maker of the 2-1. The blazingly fast bear of a Burkinese had only made a goal in eight games for Nantes and therefore had to be content with a place on the bench. The man who had made a hat-trick for his homeland a few days earlier was allowed to enter the field in the second half as pinchhitter and scored with his first ball contact. Nakoulma seems the attacker in shape at Nantes and is most likely back in the starting line against Nantes.
