Prediction Nantes vs Rennes
Analysis of the match Nantes vs Rennes
The stakes of the match Nantes vs Rennes
After their elimination from the Europa League, both teams want to bounce back: Nantes to get closer to the middle of the table and Rennes to consolidate its 5th place. No advantage in terms of motivation.
The state of form
Nantes has shown better in recent weeks but the step was too high Thursday at the Beaujoire. The Canaries, who achieved the feat of holding Juventus in check (1-1) in the 16th round of the Europa League, literally sank at home (0-3) in the return and left the European scene. As for the championship, FCN remained on successes against Ajaccio (0-2) and Lorient (1-0). He plunged last weekend in Lens (3-1) between his 2 oppositions against Juve in a match where he rotated. Nevertheless, most of the work in the race to maintain is done. Pointing in 13th place with a margin of 8 points on the first relegation, the club of the banks of the Erdre can also be satisfied to be at the rendezvous of the quarter-finals of the Coupe de France, of which it is the titleholder.
Opposite, Stade Rennais was obliged to turn the tide Thursday against Shakhtar Donetsk after being beaten (2-1) last week, on behalf of the first leg of this 16th final of the Europa League. Same observation: the Bretons, who had the match in hand, left the table of the C3. They conceded the reduction of the score (2-1) at the end of extra time and were dominated in a stunning penalty shootout (4-5). This huge disappointment confirms Rennes’ bad luck in 2023. Bruno Genesio’s men (6th in L1) still remain on a victory against Clermont (2-0) in the league after being undermined by Lille (1-3) and Toulouse (3-1). Small advantage Rennes on the form
The workforce for Nantes vs Rennes
It is still necessary to raise on the side of Nantes the forfeit of the left back Merlin, injured. His replacement Traoré is suspended, which should benefit winter recruit Hadjam this Sunday. Another forfeit is to be noted, that of the defensive earlier Pallois who contracted a new injury against Juventus. The courses in the France Cup and Europa League tug the organizations and the new forfeit of the last city comes to confirm it. Presence on the other hand the striker Ganago (3 goals), returned to the group Thursday in the European Cup after being bereaved. Author of 3 goals in February, Blas is the Nantes in form of the moment. The first goal of the star recruit of the winter, Delort, is overdue.
In Rennes, life without the wounded is hard. Apart from Assignon who is content with a substitute role, the other players in physical suffering have great importance in Bruno Genesio’s squad. Among them are the X Terrier factor (9 goals and 4 assists in Ligue 1) whose season is already over, captain Traoré (right side) and midfielder Xeka. Packages to which we add the non-convening of the midfielder Tait, as against Clermont. The other elements are apt to the image of the providential Bourigeaud (3 goals and 5 assists in L1) and Gouiri (9 goals). Rookie Toko-Ekambi scored his first two goals for Stade Rennais, one in each play-off against Shakhtar. The player on loan from OL should start on the left wing of the attack. Kalimuendo (6 goals) scored his first double with SRFC last weekend. Advantage Nantes on paper
