Rennes vs Nice by PatrickBateman
Rennes have started their season with two losses and two draws. However, last time out they beat Marseille on the road, which came pretty much as a surprise. Already in 10th minute they were 2:0 up and that score stayed until 70th, when Gnagnon made it 3:0. That was defiinitely the end, with Sanson managing only to narrow the gap for the hosts in 87th minute. Visitors showed great performance, even missing a penalty in the end, and they will hope to carry that form into this match. Nyamsi, Tell and Gourcuff are out injured for this game.
Nice started their season similarly to Rennes, having picked up only one victory in the fist eight games of the season across all competitions. Last week, however, they recorded two convincing victories, having beaten Monaco 4:0 and Zulte Waregem in the Europa League 5:1. They completely shut down Monaco, who looked more powerless than ever, while pretty much the same happened when they visited Zulte. In 28th minute already it was 3:0, and even though hosts pulled one back in 46th, Nice proved to be too strong and with two more goals took three points. Visitors will remain to be without Cyprien, Le Bihan and Sneijder who are all injured.
Both teams started the season badly, but both are coming here after formidable peformances. Nice seem like a more quality team, but since Rennes are playing at home, bookies are pricing them as favourites. While I tend to lean on Nice`s side here, any outcome is possible, and therefore I will turn my focus to goal markets. All of Rennes games this season saw both teams scoring, with last four seeing at least four goals. Nice kept only two clean sheets and both at home, and while they have struggled to score, return of Balotelli and 9 goals in 2 games should ensure them at least one here. All in all, I can`t see past both sides scoring here and it seems like the best way to go.
