Ligue 1: Rennes vs Valenciennes by DamirJ
Rennes is still having very good start of the season as they currently hold 6th position in Ligue 1 being very close to Champions League positions and also having four points more then 7th placed team. Also, Rennes is playing in Europa League in a very tough group with Celtic, Udinese and Atletico Madrid. Hosts are one of the most effective sides in domestic league with 21 scored goal in 12 games. Rennes have been especially good against weaker teams this season, exploiting their great midfielder and ending games with more then one goal difference. Hosts are still unbeaten at home this season having scored in 8 out of 9 games. Right back Boye is unavailable for this game.
Valenciennes is simply not the same team from last season and this is reflected on their results this autumn. Almost all their important players from last season left during summer, especially in defense and they are now totally new team. Team that is very talented and has bright future, but also a team that is not experienced and team that will have many difficult games before they secure their Ligue1 spot for next season too. Right now they are on 18th position with only two points more then bottom placed team. Only one point they earned on the road meaning that home games are everything for them.
180 minutes without goal scored, only one draw out of six games on road...team like that should be too weak for Rennes who will surely be looking to impress and get back to winning days once again.
