Match Preview

  • Mid-table Nice saw their winless run stretched to three Ligue 1 (L1) matches (D1, L2) after they were held 0-0 at Reims last weekend. A good start would likely help rediscover their touch though, as Nice’s last eight top-flight fixtures won/lost witnessed the victorious side on the day score first before HT (W4, L4).
  • Despite claiming only 38.89% of their 2020/21 L1 points at home, the hosts have been decent at finding the net at the Allianz Riviera, failing to score in just one of their previous 24 L1 home fixtures. However, the ‘Aiglons’ have failed to take a HT lead in all six of their home league games this campaign (HT: D3, L3).
  • Also out of form, Stade Rennais have tasted victory just once from their previous eight league fixtures (W1, D3, L4), while failing to score before the 60th minute in the last four. In fact, they have let in at least one goal in each of their last eight top-flight games, the longest current run of any L1 side this campaign.
  • On the plus side, the visitors have lost just one of their last seven L1 away games (W3, D3) spanning back to the close of 2019/20, while scoring first in five of those six won/drawn games. However, Rennes must contend with the ghosts of a ten-game winless streak vs Nice in L1 dating back to 2015 (D4, L6 – all venues).
  • Players to watch: Amine Gouiri has scored five of his last six competitive goals for Nice during matches producing over 3.5 goals. Meanwhile, Adrien Hunou has been Rennes’ last goalscorer in each of his last eight goalscoring games in all competitions.
  • Hot stat: Just one of the last 13 L1 H2Hs have witnessed both sides score before HT, with ten featuring under 1.5 first half goals.
