Winning on the road is never easy, but that’s what Rennes must do to qualify for the UEFA Conference League. Otherwise, AS Monaco could take their place. Rennes is heavily favored in the Ligue 1 odds, but their road record isn’t good, and Brestois only lost one of their last 10 matches.
PSG may have already won the title, but the last fixture of Ligue 1 will be a thriller.
Brestois: No Pressure
Brestois already avoided relegation, which means the club will play without any pressure. Brestois is currently offering +420 Ligue 1 betting odds to win straight up.
Brestois has been considerably better when playing at home, winning each of their last five matches and finishing with a clean sheet in three. Most recently, they defeated Clermont 2-1.
They also won last weekend on the road, 2-1 over Marseille. Hugo Magnetti and Mahdi Camara were the scorers. Brestois lost possession with 37% but finished with 15 shots in total, five more than the home side. Keep in mind that Marseille are sitting third.
Individually, we must talk about Jeremy Le Douaron, who has scored 10 goals. He’s only 25 and will soon sign for a domestic powerhouse. There are also Romain Del Castillo and Franck Honorat, who have scored six goals each.
Finally, regardless of the result, Brestois scored in 13 of their last 14 games. Summing up, you can expect them to put up a good fight.
Since mid-May, Rennes have been flawless, winning their last three matches with an 11-0 aggregate. First, they defeated Troyes 4-0. Later, they crushed Ajaccio 5-0. Most recently, they got a huge 2-0 victory over AS Monaco.
The victory over the Monegasques, in which Lovro Majer and Amine Gouiri scored, allowed them to climb to fifth place. They have 65 points, the same as Monaco, meaning they can’t even afford to draw on Saturday.
Make sure to keep an eye on Gouiri, who’s only 23 and has scored 15 goals, enough to lead the team. He’s followed by Gaetan Laborde with 14. There’s also Benjamin Bourigeaud, who leads the team in assists with 10.
Rennes doesn’t have the best road record, 5-5-8. However, keep in mind that they scored in five of their last seven matches and managed to defeat PSG at Parc de Princes.
Regarding the Ligue 1 lines, Rennes is offering a -165 price to win straight up. Considering what’s on the line, that’s a very good price.
