Reason For Rennes vs Angers Betting Tips

  • Rennes have won four of their last five league games.
  • Angers have conceded five times in their last two matches and have won just one away game in all competitions this season.
  • Rennes haven’t kept a home clean sheet since April.

Angers in a rut

Angers were on the wrong side of a 2-0 scoreline in midweek as an efficient Marseille side put them to the sword at the Vélodrome. It was another poor performance from Les Scoïstes following their defeat to Nice last week and Stéphane Moulin will be hoping that this run of form doesn’t get out of hand. Angers are generally rather solid at the back but have been conceding a few more chances and goals than normal in the last few weeks with five now shipped in their last two games. 

Angers usually aren’t scoring for fun but they have been particularly poor up front recently with just three goals scored in their last eight Ligue 1 matches. They will also need to be careful as they travel to Rennes as their away form has been pretty torrid this season. Les Scoïstes have won just one of their eight away games in all competitions this campaign with 18 goals leaked in this time, although it should be noted that six of these came in the first game of the season. 

Purple patch for Rennes

Rennes got their fourth league win in five games on Wednesday as they climbed up to 7th. It has been a good run of games for Julien Stéphan’s men as they put the disappointment of the Europa League to one side to focus on their domestic duties. Stéphan will be desperate for this team to keep this going due to the pressure that had been mounting before this run of form. 

Rennes have conceded seven goals in this run of five games so they definitely need to sure up the backline but their ten goals in this time have seen them through the tough matches. Adrien Hunou has been a key part of this as the club stalwart has scored five goals in his last nine games in all competitions, taking full advantage of his opportunity up top as he usually plays on the left of midfield. 

Rennes will also be looking to harness the power of Roazhon Park as they host this match as their home ground has been pivotal to their success this season. They have won four of their seven matches there in the league including victories over Saint-Étienne and PSG so Angers should be wary here as they travel north. 

Roazhon Park to play its part?

Angers have probably been the better team of the two generally this season but Rennes have really kicked it up a gear in recent weeks and we’re backing them to get the win as a result. The hosts are unbeaten in their last five clashes with Angers, winning three of the last four, and with the wind in their sails they should be able to see this one out. Rennes haven’t kept a clean sheet at home since April though so we’re backing this to end 2-1 to the hosts.
