Rennes- Week 14

Guingamp vs. Rennes

 

Match Date: 22 November 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stade du Roudourou

 

Guingamp

A thrashing from Lyon caused Guingamp to slump into the relegation zone last week. It was the squad’s 4th loss out of its last six (6) matches and should they continue such lackluster performance, they could become an immediate relegation favorite of sports betting sites.

 

A quick look into what the happenings of its recent match shows that the club really struggled in the scoring line. They are lucky that  Lyon’s Anthony Lopes scored an own goal, thus preventing a clean sheet. If it wasn’t for the said error, Guingamp could have hit the rock bottom part of the league table.

 

Rennes

Rennes’ rank catapulted into the 7th spot after earning a narrow win against the rock bottom Lorient.

 

It was a certified thriller match and many expected a scoreless stalemate during the final whistle. However, a minute before the match ended, Philipp Hosiner spotted a rampaging Pedro Henrique, who ensured that the ball went into the net.

 

Prediction

Guingamp 1-2 Rennes

Lorient vs. Lens

 

Match Date: 22 November 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stade de la Route de Lorient

 

Lorient

Lorient must be very disappointed for ruining their chances of clinching three (3) points against Rennes. They already have the opportunity or at the very least, they could have forced a stalemate, but none of it materialized.

 

The club now stands at the bottom of the table, sporting nine (9) losses in its thirteen (13) appearances.

 

Lens

Lens’ current situation is no better than Lorient. The club tries to hold on to its one point lead against Lorient. But it doesn’t erase the fact that it is also struggling at the bottom. Lens earned its second consecutive loss under the hands of Bordeaux, which dominated the match from the very start.

 

Prediction

Lorient 0-3 Lens
