Rennes take on the visitors Nice in the round 32 match of French Ligue 1. The match will be played on Sunday April 14th at Roazhon Park (Rennes).
The upcoming match is a battle for the place in the French Cup final. The finalist will face PSG, who are obvious favorites of any French competition. The victory of Rennes over Lyon was impressive, the hosting team has not been involved in relegation battle for a long time. Participation in the playoffs of the Europa League made the season quite remarkable. Rennes looks great in attacking phase and even managed to beat strong Arsenal at own field, where the team shows quite solid results. At the same time, the team conceded 2 or 3 goals in recent matches, failed to record a clean sheet in their last 8 matches and completely forgot how to record a victory in Ligue 1 matches.

Nice won their recent two matches with the same score, 1-0. The team looks strong in home matches this season and their home fans have no reason to complain. Both matches had the same scenario – solid defensive football, a scored goal, and then denying opponent’s attempts to equalize. At the same time, Nice play awful in away matches, recording only 1 vicotry over Dijon in their last 11 games on the road. So, it gives us following controversy – the visitors are battling for Europa League’s place but their chances to win this match are fatigue, according to bookies line.
Five points separate the opponents in the standings. Rennes have home field advantage while Nice recorded 2 wins with 2 clean sheets in a row and took seven points in three recent matches. The hosts allow quire number of goals recently and if Nice manages to score, it will be difficult for the hosts to get back in the game. Clearly the visitors are more skilled side and they have solid chance to avoid defeat in the match given their form in recent matches.
Prediction for the match: Nice to win with +0.5 handicap.
