After a defeat away to PSG where they put up a really good fight, players of Nantes comfortably won over Montpellier 2:0. Their game was much easier as the guests stood playing with a man less early into the game. Two goals in the second halftime came, as the side now stands at the eleventh position, seven less than Europa League placed Montpellier.
Rennes managed to get the third consecutive victory in Ligue 1 when the team welcomed Nimes and outplayed the opponent with a 4:0 result. The game itself was very open one and the guests weren’t that bad either, but lacked more concrete things in attack. The team now stands just four points behind Europa League tickets.
Offensive midfielder Boschilia (16/4) is injured, while midfielder Krhin (10/0) remains doubtful. The guests miss injured left back Baal (1/0) and goalkeeper Diallo (6/0).
Rennes have scored at least 2 goals in their last 3 away matches (Ligue 1).
Nantes is some decent form of late and surely will be aiming points here. The same could be said for Rennes, a side that is far better in offense recently. Goals should be quite a logical consequence between two in-form sides that have far better offensive potential than their defensive reliability is.
