Rennes vs Nimes prediction on May 23, 2021. Rennes is playing at home Route to welcome the team in the bottom group of Nimes in round 38. With the poor performance of the away team’s defense, Rennes is considered to have no difficulty bringing back 3 full points.
Contributing to this season’s Champions League, however, Rennes is not in good form in League 1 and only holds 7th place. The attack is still a bright spot scoring 50 goals after 37 rounds, bringing 15 victories including 8 victories. Win at Route. Must mention the jubilant 5-1 victory over Dijon and the recent 1-1 draw with PSG, the rate of 3 goals per home game.
However, the decline in defense is the problem, receiving up to 40 goals from the beginning of the season, 4 consecutive matches without keeping a clean sheet. The mistakes in the 2 1-2 defeats against Monaco are hard to ignore. Meeting Nimes at this moment could not have been a better opportunity for Rennes to vent his anger and end the season on a positive note.
Nimes encountered too many difficulties this season and the ticket back to League 2 was predicted in advance. Scoring 40 goals but conceding 69 times and 20 defeats after 37 matches are statistics worthy of the penultimate position. Weak personnel plus a loose play lead to frequent attacking and braking situations.
This is also the team with the second-worst defense in the tournament, a heavy 2-5 defeat to Lyon has officially closed the door of relegation. Away from home, Nimes gets into the net to pick up the ball an average of 1.7 times per game. With the spirit of competition almost giving up, the possibility of Nimes’ breaking up is very high.
Asian Bet – Rennes vs Nimes prediction
Not only superior in strength, but the confrontation history is supporting the home team. 5 times met Rennes won 4 matches, including a 4-2 victory in the first leg this season. Nimes is Rennes’ favorite prey, not to mention the increasingly disparate level between the two teams.
Recent performance shows that Nimes’ competitive spirit has dropped to a very low level. The loose play made them receive 2 defeats after 4 matches, the defense had a bad performance with 9 times in the net to pick up the ball. In the opposite direction, Rennes owns 3 wins in the last 4 home matches, only accepting points against PSG. The opposite situation somewhat foreshadowed the outcome of this match.
The home-field advantage and overwhelming head-to-head record, too many advantages in the hands of Rennes. Winning the gap against your favorite opponent is the goal within the reach of coach Genesio’s team.
