Brest vs Rennes: August 15, 2021, Ligue 1 Match Prediction
August 15, 2021 4:00 pm
Stade Francis-Le Ble is where the game between Brest and Rennes is set to take place on the 15th of August. Both sides have drawn their last two games. The home side is in 8th place while the visitors are 12th on the log.
Brest, the home team, have only won 1 of their last five games, and that was a 4-2 win against Plabennec Stade during the preseason. Their first league game was a 1-1 draw away at Parc Olympique Lyonnais. In that game, although Lyon outplayed them, they managed to do the needful and get themselves an opener in the 43rd minute through Irvin Cantina before the home team leveled affairs through a beautiful link-up goal from Toko Ekambi to Islam Slimani at the Groupama Stadium on matchday 1.
Stade Brestois 29 have been without a clean sheet for the past eight games and have consistently dropped over 2.5 goal games. Both teams have scored in their last 7 games as they are mostly the first team to concede (in at least 6 of their 8 games). Coach Mikel De Zakarian, no doubt, will want to make a clear statement of his side’s commitment to winning when Stade Rennes come visiting. This is much needed as Brest currently has the lowest win tally among all the Ligue 1 teams this year.
At Stade Rennais FC, a draw was also what they opened their accounts for the season with. Sulemana opened the scoring in the 14th minute of the game, only to be equalised in the 19th minute. Even though Rennes was the more dominant side in that engagement, it didn’t reflect on the scoresheet as both sides shared the spoils evenly.
Things have generally been better for the team as they have lost only 2 of their last 11 Ligue 1 games, after losing each of their previous games. Rennes have also won 3 out of the 4 most recent head-to-head clashes between the two teams.
Match Predictions and Odds
The game may go both ways, but considering the precedent strongly, Brest has come out victorious in only one of their last ten meetings. They also have suboptimal win ratios. It is tempting to predict a Rennes win, but a draw seems more logical.
Brest 1 – 1 Rennes
