Angers vs Rennes Free Betting Prediction
Authors of a very convincing start to the season, the Angevins stalled a bit in the fall to the point of returning to the soft stomach of the championship, in 9th place. Since their last victory in Nantes (1-2), SOC players have made 2 draws, at home against Nice (1-1) and Marseille (0-0) last Saturday. In the previous rounds, Stéphane Moulin’s men eliminated Dieppe (1-3) and Rouen (1-4) to reach these 1 / 8th finals.
Opposite, Stade Rennais finds itself a very credible candidate for a place in the Champions League since it is currently placed on the 3rd step of the podium with 4 steps ahead of 4th place. Beaten by OM (0-1), the Bretons returned to victory by winning against Nîmes (0-1). Friday evening, they went to look for a point in Nice (1-1). Winners of the last edition of the Coupe de France, the Red and Black started their new campaign well by winning against Amiens (0-0, 5-4 tab), and Athlético Marseille (0-2).
