Brest vs Rennes – Ligue 1 Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction

Match Day 20 encounter, with Brest taking on Rennes on Sunday the 17th of January, 2021, at Stade Francis-Le Blé.

Brest visited PSG last weekend, went 1-0 down early, in the 16th minute, but stayed in the game until late, not conceding again before the 81st minute. About 100 seconds later, PSG made it 3-0, Brest’s second defeat in their last three matches. Their current form reads; LWLDD. They are on 26 points from 19 games, 11th in the table. They have 8W, 2D and 9L, having won just one of their last five matches. Goals, 30 scored, 34 conceded. Only five Ligue 1 teams have scored more goals then them this season, and four of those are the top-4. Coach Olivier Dall’Oglio played a 4-4-2 formation against PSG, with Cardona and Faivre up front. It’s worth mentioning that Brest had just one non-French player in their starting lineup, Algerian Belkebla. As hosts, Brest have four wins and one draw in their last five games, have dropped just two points, in a 2-2 draw with Montpellier. In their most recent home match, they beat Nice 2-0.

Rennes hosted Lyon last weekend, and missed a huge opportunity to earn all three points. Early in the second half they went 2-0 up, they protected that two-goal lead until the 79th minute, but incredibly, by the 82nd, the score was at 2-2(!), which did not change in the remainder of the match. Their current form reads; DDWWW. They are on 33 points from 19 matches, 5th in the table. They have 9W, 6D and 4L, having now drawn in back-to-back matches. Goals, 28 scored, 21 conceded. Coach Julien Stéphan played a 4-1-4-1 formation against Lyon, with Terrier up front. It was Grenier who opened the scoring for Rennes in the 20th minute, and Bourigeaud who made it 2-0 in the 55th. That was his third goal this season in Ligue 1, from 19 matches, having already done one better than last season, when he had two goals from 25 appearances in France’s top division.

Rennes hosted Brest twice in 2020, they drew 0-0 in February, and beat them 2-1 in October.

A 2-2 draw is predicted at full-time.

Date: Sunday, 17th of January, 2021.
