Rennes vs Nice Predictions


Rennes and Nice are in poor form with a draw backed in Brittany.

  • Rennes have lost their last 3 matches (all competitions).
  • Rennes have drawn 2 of their last 4 home matches (Ligue 1).
  • Rennes have drawn 4 of their last 8 matches against Nice (Ligue 1).
  • Nice have lost their last 3 matches (Ligue 1).

Head to Head


Rennes have a 19-18 advantage against Nice with 15 draws in 52 matches.

Four of the last eight meetings in Ligue 1 have been draws.

Rennes Form


Rennes are in poor form but still in contention to qualify for the Europa League. They won four straight matches in December but have won just one of nine since.

Julien Stéphan’s side last tasted victory in a 2-1 win at Brest on 17 January.

Rennes have lost three in a row including a 2-1 defeat Angers in the Coupe de France. They returned to Ligue 1 with a 2-0 defeat against Saint-Etienne and 2-1 loss at Montpellier.

Rennes Injuries & Team News


Midfielder Clément Grenier came off the bench in Montpellier, registered an assist and could start here.

Winger Flavien Tait is injured but Romain Del Castillo came off the bench last time out after an injury lay off.

Nice Form


Nice have been flirting with relegation for most of the season. Manager Adrian Ursea replaced Patrick Vieira in early December with some encouraging signs in recent weeks.

The Eagles won 3-0 against Angers in Ligue 1 and 3-1 at Nimes in the Coupe de France.

Rennes then lost 2-1 at PSG and 3-2 at Marseille where they had 1.21-0.65 expected goals. 

Rennes’ last match was a 2-1 home defeat to Metz. Amine Gouiri equalised from the penalty spot in the 61st minute but they couldn’t find an equaliser.

Nice Injuries & Team News


Nice centre backs Dante and Danilo remain out alongside midfielder Jeff Reine-Adélaïde.

Right backs Youcef Atal and Jordan Lotomba are also injured but striker Kasper Dolberg is close to returning from an appendectomy.

21-year-old Amine Gouiri is in great form with three goals and an assist in his last four matches.
