Betting Tips for the game
Rennes’ four-game winning streak in Ligue 1 ended in midweek, as they lost 2-1 at Guingamp. Their form over the past month and a half has seen them lose just two of their last nine games across all competitions. Furthermore, Rennes have been impeccable on home soil of late, having won each of their last five competitive fixtures.
On the contrary, Montpellier have only won two of their last ten games across all competitions. They enter the fray on the back of a five-game winless streak, losing three in the process. Away from home, Montpellier have only won once in their last five competitive trips, while losing three. Despite this awful run, Montpellier still sit 5th in the standings, just three points behind the top four.
Rennes have been amazing at home over the past few months and they also hold a strong head-to-head record against Montpellier. Our betting tips and predictions would back Rennes to win at odds 2.05.
