Rennes – Brest Preview

  • Despite taking just one victory in their last five Ligue 1 outings, Rennes are still within touching distance of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) spots. Bridging that gap will require Rennes to harbour the spirit of 2019/20, in which they secured UCL football for the first time ever, although they did falter in that season against Brest, almost two years ago to the day (0-0).
  • That stalemate was Rennes’ last Ligue 1 home match to end goalless, and it provides a warning against complacency, Yet, ‘Les Rennais’ have been formidable at Roazhon Park lately, winning six of their last eight league games there, while netting an average of 2.9 goals per-game.
  • Opponents Brest halted a four-match winless league run (D1, L3) with a victory against champions Lille in their last Ligue 1 outing, and sit just six points adrift of the European positions ahead of the round. Additionally, they’ve lost just one of their last six away league matches, giving them a sporting chance of upsetting the odds.
  • Brest have had no problems scoring on the road this season, with only PSG blunting them, but defence is a different matter. That result aside, Brest’s Ligue 1 away games this season have consistently seen both teams score, but reassuringly for them, only three Ligue 1 one sides have a better points average away from home than Brest in games where they have conceded first.
  • Players to watch: Rennes’ Baptiste Santamaria scored his customary one goal of the season in their least league outing, failing to score multiple goals in a campaign since 2015/16. Also hoping to boost his stats, Brest’s Franck Honorat is the team’s only scorer across their last four away games.
  • Hot stat: Rennes are the only Ligue 1 side yet to claim a league point after falling behind at home (L3).
