Brest will be taking on visiting team Rennes at Stade Francis le Ble in a Ligue 1 tie on Saturday.

We should be looking at a thrilling match on Saturday at Stade Francis le Ble, where the home side won their last three outings. Rennes, however, arrive here on the back of three away wins on the spin. Who'll be the first to blink?

Brest are relatively average in the art of goal-scoring these days. They scored a steady 15 goals in their previous ten matches, for an average of 1.5 per game. They simultaneously allowed their opponents eight goals, or an average of 0.8 a game. Furthermore, they fought their way to four clean sheets in this run.

Rennes are brimming with confidence in front of goal before the upcoming away match in the Ligue 1, as they can show off very handsome numbers from their previous ten games. The visitors scored 2.2 times on average per match, for a total of 22 goals. They also let in nine goals, leaving an average of 0.9 per match. They fought their way to five clean sheets.

Rennes got the better of Brest in the last two h2h meetings, winning by 3-1 and 2-0, respectively.

Brest vs Rennes Prediction

Brest Form

In their last three outings, Brest won 1-0 against Auxerre, beat Clermont Foot by 2-1 and hammered Marseille 1-2. Brest won five of their last six Ligue 1 matches at Stade Francis le Ble, scoring ten and conceding four along the way. They lost once but didn't draw a single match.

Rennes Form

Rennes are in awesome shape going into this next encounter, as they won their last three matches on the bounce. Troyes got left behind in a 4-0 win, before AC Ajaccio got hammered in a 0-5 victory. Monaco was the most recent victim in a 2-0 win for Rennes. Rennes won twice, while also recording one draw, and three defeats in their last six away matches in the Ligue 1. The scoreline from these matches says six goals conceded and nine scored.

In current form, we favour Rennes to claim a win, when they challenge Brest at Stade Francis le Ble. We doubt, the home side is able to stop the visitors.

Brest are looking at a record of 11 wins, 11 draws and 15 defeats in the Ligue 1 this season. Rennes are looking at 20 wins, five draws and 12 defeats in the Ligue 1.
