Match Preview

  • Midtable Stade Brestois have claimed just one victory from their previous five Ligue 1 (L1) outings (D2, L2), but despite that, they’ve still fostered some exciting games this season, with their fixtures averaging a league-high 3.37 total goals per match. However that’s not so surprising when you consider they’ve registered a joint-league low two goalless first halves so far.
  • Strong at home, ‘Les Brestois’ are unbeaten in their last five games here (W4, D1), and have claimed 73.08% of their league points on home turf. In fact, no L1 side has led at HT on more occasions at home than Brest this term (HT: W6, L3), mainly due to the fact they’ve scored 73.68% of their home league goals before the break.
  • After suffering an eight-game winless streak in all competitions (D1, L7), Stade Rennais have hit the accelerator and strung together an impressive six-game unbeaten L1 run (W4, D2) that’s taken them into the top five ahead of this weekend. Morale should therefore be high, and having rescued a league-best 1.32 points on average when conceding first since the beginning of the 2019/20 campaign (W8, D5, L9), even conceding the opener might not dent their confidence.
  • The visitors have also lost just one of their last ten L1 away matches (W5, D4, L1), whilst keeping a clean sheet in the previous three – their longest such streak for a year. Furthermore, Rennes have lost just one of the last 14 L1 road trips that they entered as betting favourites (W8, D5, L1).
  • Players to watch: Brest’s Steve Mounié has scored four of his five L1 goals at home – four of those five arrived before HT. For the visitors, in-form Clément Grenier has netted the game’s opener in two of Rennes’ last three matches.
  • Hot streak: The last six L1 H2Hs have witnessed the home side on the day fail to score before HT.
