Team Form


Following the scoreless stalemate against Nice, Rennes are keen on moving farther away from the relegation zone.
Rennes currently occupies the 15th spot of the Ligue 1 table. Their form is  a little bit short of being impressive as they have only managed to secure a single victory during their last six (6) matches.


More than the need to score more points, winning over Evian Thonon Gaillard is a guaranteed way of saving themselves from the tight competition at the bottom part of the table. Fortunately, the club does not have any major injuries, which heavily require their attention.


Playing at home proves to be a perfect set-up for the club. This can boost their confidence to win the match and eventually, carry that confidence when they go against Lille in their next battle.


Evian Thonon Gaillard

Trailing Rennes by two (2) points, Evian is also determined to move a rank higher than its current position. Like Rennes, the club (Evian) is aware of the intense fight happening at the rock bottom part of the table and they want to avoid it as much as possible.


Evian’s current form is the same as that of Rennes. They too, have only won a single match, forced a draw and lost four (4) of their recent matches.
Although it is possible for Evian to secure the coveted victory, their away matches give them a headache. Three (3) of their recent away matches forced to go down to their knees. They need to work on this area should they want to ensure their safety this season.


Online betting top pick:  An even steven finish

Currently, the strength and weaknesses of these clubs are on equal footing. Similarly, their intense passion to win this match is also on an equal scale. In situations where both clubs refuse to give way, there is a high possibility for the match to end in a draw.
