Ligue1: Rennes v Caen
Rennes has shown some really good football this summer. Victories over Dijon, draw against Psg and two wins against Red Star in Europa League cannot be coincidence. Caen on the other side had a good start, but they cannot be considered as good away team. Rennes showed till now quite unatractive football, but more then efficient. They leave the ball to opponent, but defend more then good and play on counter attacks. Their game is highly physical and most of the Ligue 1 teams will really have big problems facing a team that plays such a strong physical football.
Caen, although having a really good start of the season, they are still mediocre team that will be well above teams like Rennes at the end of the season. Caen coach already said that they know they are facing very good and in-form team and that they must be patient and wait for their chance, this means that they will probably try to approach little bit more defensive strategy.
Rennes is a big favourite today, they have many players capable of making a difference at any time and this is actually the main thing that Caen lacks - more quality individuals. Furthermore, both teams have all of their regular players available for this game. Tradition is on Rennes favour as they lost only once in last six games at home against Caen.
