Rennes welcome the visitors Strasbourg in the French Ligue 1 – Round 15. The match will be held on Sunday, December 2nd at the Roazhon Park (Rennes).
It is totally unclear in what way Rennes can surpass the opponent. They miss in ten consecutive rounds of the national league, they are about to drop out from the Europa League (we really doubt their win over Astana in the last round), and are no better than any middle-class team of the French championship. Apart from this, Rennes have a negative goal difference, and they fail to get a home win yet four rounds in a row. There are issues with the squad, and the team are exhausted after the European Cups.

It's amazing that the team sitting ahead of the opponent in the table are offered the twofold margin. Can Strasbourg be considered underdog? Surely, they can’t. The guests lost only once in nine games – that was the last round defeat to Nimes; they played successfully in the Coupe de France; they score twice in almost all alternate games; and they look confident in outings. Speaking of defeats, with two-goal margin Strasbourg lost to Lyon only. In the coming match though, even the one goal handicap is offered the same margin as Rennes’ win is.
In bookies’ view, Rennes should easily win, possibly, by a margin of two goals yet, just because they have the positive head-to-head record at home. Though, it is not quite correct to consider the record of the matches which were held more than ten years ago. The opponent conceded in two in seven matches only. The guests’ win would not be a surprise. The Red and Blacks have no advantage at all.
Prediction for the match: Strasbourg to win with +1.0 handicap.
