Nice host Rennes at Allianz Riviera on the Ligue 1 matchday 1.
Nice had a wonderful season previously, as they finished 2 points behind Champions League spot and one-step away from bronze medals. Nice took 4th spot as they earned 63 points with 58:41 goal difference. This summer, Nice underwent huge makeover, as the hosts lost their head coach Claude Puel, Pied, and leaders Mendy, Germain and Hatem Ben Arfa. On top of that, Lucien Favre replaced Puel as head coach of the team and Nice signed number of good players. However, they all need time to adapt in the new club. Favre in turn will need time to build completely new team, especially after Ben Arfa departure. We should mention Nice are currently on 5-game winning streak at home.

Rennes in turn have failed the end of previous season as they recorded just 1 point in 6 last games of the season. They did not make it to the eurocups as they took 8th spot with 52 points earned and 52:54 goal difference. Rennes weren’t consistent during preseason as they played 6 friendlies recording 2 wins, 1 draw and 3 defeats. On top of that, Rennes lost their leader Dembele who was signed for Borussia Dortmund.
Nice played Rennes thrice last season as they recorded two thrashing wins (3:0 and 4:1) and 1:1 draw. Both sides remained without their leaders, however, Nice play at home and they are expected to avoid losing this time.
Prediction for the match: Nice to win with 0 handicap.
