Angers will travel to the Roazhon Park to take on Rennes on Saturday evening, with both teams aiming to get their first victory of this new Ligue 1 campaign. Rennes have suffered a thrashing 3-1 defeat on the road at Lille last weekend, despite the fact that Clement Grenier gave them the lead in the 43th minute. On the other hand, Angers were involved in an entertaining affair against the newly-promoted Nimes at the weekend, but unfortunately they lost 3-4 at home. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Rennes looked solid towards the end of the previous Ligue 1 season, but they started the new campaign in poor fashion. The good news is that Rennes are now back on home soil where they have lost just once in their last seven league games. Furthermore, Rennes are undefeated in their six home meetings with Angers across all competitions.
Meanwhile, Angers have won just once in their last 15 games across all competitions and are currently on a ten-game winless streak. Angers aren’t regarded as good travelers, having won just two of their last 12 away games in Ligue 1. In addition, they are winless in their six trips to the Roazhon Park.
Rennes should be able to grab the first win of the new season here, especially after Angers’ disappointing defeat at the hands of newcomers Nimes last weekend. Our betting tips and predictions would back Rennes to win at odds 1.80.

Correct Score odds
Despite the fact that both sides have been involved in high-scoring affairs on the opening round, we don’t fancy too many goals in this one. Four of the last five meetings between these two have ended with under 2.5 goals. In addition, Angers have failed to score in five of their last 12 league trips. Our correct score fancies Rennes to win 2-0 at odds 7.50.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Five of Angers’ last six games across all competitions have seen few than three goals scored. On the other hand, Rennes have scored more than two goals just in one of their last ten home games across all competitions. Our total goals prediction fancies under 2.5 goals at odds 1.62.

First Goalscorer odds
Ismaila Sarr hasn’t been able to find the back of the net on the opening round, but he looked great for Rennes towards the end of the previous Ligue 1 campaign. Sarr has scored at least once in each of Rennes’ last three games of the previous season. Our first goalscorer prediction is Ismaila Sarr at odds 6.00.
