Rennes- Week 16

Nantes vs. Toulouse

 

Match Date: 02 December 2014 (local time)

Venue: La Beaujoire-Louis

 

Nantes

Nantes just had a taste of its first defeat in six (6) matches. The squad eventually fell down into the hands of a keen and aggressive Marseille, which is on the verge of protecting its lead against Paris Saint Germain.

 

Fortunately, Nantes’ previous performances delivered good results that the said loss wouldn’t put them at the risk of hitting the relegation zone.

 

Toulouse

Toulouse’s story is quite similar to Nantes. The club succumbed to its second consecutive loss and hasn’t moved away from their current spot. A win could’ve made the difference. Yet, evidently, they need to deal with their present circumstance and fortunately, moved gain the necessary points in penetrating the league’s top 10.

 

Prediction

Nantes 2-0 Toulouse

 

***

Nice vs. Rennes

 

Match Date: 02 December 2014 (local time

Venue: Stade de la Route de Lorient

 

Nice

Nice did a good job from preventing the top football betting pick,  PSG in a scoring rampage. However, they weren’t too fortunate in stopping Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Ibra netted a penalty, which became the first and only goal of the match. With the said loss, Nice was stuck in the 11th spot of the league table.

 

Rennes

Undefeated in its last six (6) matches, Rennes snatched a 2-0 win against AS Monaco that propelled them to the table’s  6th spot. So far, this team has shown tons of potential of penetrating Ligue 1’s elite. Considering this aspect at hand, it is less likely that they’ll drop a point to Nice.

 

Prediction

Nice 0-2 Rennes
