Strasbourg vs Rennes Prediction and Match Preview

Sunday, August 25 – 11:00 EST – Stade de la Meinau

Strasbourg have started the season with 2 draws. They will be disappointed in their first match of the season as they feel they should have beaten the newly promoted Metz team. Their last match ended in a scoreless draw against Reims. With that being said, Strasbourg have been the busiest team in France also due to their Europa League campaign. Strasbourg have really focused on getting results in the Europa league. As a result of this, their season has been suffering. It seems as though exhaustion among the Strasbourg team is setting in. After two consecutive draws, they will likely come out hungry to give their fans a chance to celebrate their first win of the season.

Rennes have been excellent in Ligue 1 so far. They beat Montpellier 1-0 in the opening weekend of the season with a goal from Jeremy Morel. Rennes followed this result up with an incredible 2-1 victory over PSG. Goals in this match came from M’Baye Niang and Romain Del Castillo. They’ll be happy with the way they started the season and will look to keep this hot streak going with a third win against Strasbourg this Sunday at the Stade de la Meinau. Rennes have lost just 2 of their last 8 away matches. They will go into this one with confidence but need to be sure they will perform as Strasbourg have shown they are a great side as well.
