Team Form    


A humiliated Rennes goes back to Stade dele Route–de-Lorient after a disappointing defeat to league minnow, Ajaccio.


It was a bit of a surprise to see Rennes bow down to Ajaccio. In a not so flattering fashion, the best that the club came up with was a lone goal from Abdoulaye Doucouré while their opponents thrashed them with three (3) clear goals.


Given this aspect at hand, one cannot blame the frustration felt by the club’s head honcho, Philippe Montanier. Rennes lackluster performance prevented an upward move in the Ligue 1 table. What is even more disappointing was the fact that they were unable to salvage themselves from the tough relegation battle.


Occupying the 15th spot of the table, Rennes has only won once in their last six (6) matches. They have two (2) losses and thrive through draws.



Montpellier have successfully maintained a clean slate after an even steven finish with rival, Evian Thonon Gaillard.
Despite lingering at the bottom part of the mid table, Montpellier shows potential in improving their rank and leaving the relegation battle soon. They were undefeated in their last six (6) matches and with a little bit of consistency, they can earn more points.


Perhaps if there is anything that the club needs to put more attention to, it is no other than directing their focus to getting more victories instead of being contented with draws.


Montpellier has an equal number of wins and losses in their last six (6) matches.


Prediction: Montpellier

Rennes play the strongest at home. As a matter of fact, they kept a clean sheet in their last three (3) home matches. However, it is evident that Montpellier has a better form and therefore, has a higher possibility of winning the match.
