These two are right next to each other in the Ligue 1 table and whoever wins will come out on top overall, but neither Reims nor Rennes will be happy with how their campaigns have ended up.

Key stats

  • Reims snapped a six-game winless run last time out against Marseille
  • Rennes' last two victories have come on the road
  • Les Rennais have scored exactly three goals in three of the last four games against Reims

Pre-game odds and win probability: Rennes slight favourites

  • Home: 8/5 (2.6) – 38.5%
  • Draw: 23/10 (3.3) – 30.3%
  • Away: 11/8 (2.38) – 42.1%

While the bookmakers have placed Rennes as the favourites, it's not by much which suggests they have struggled to separate both of them, which is now surprising given the horrendous end-of-season form of the two teams.

With nothing between them in the form table or in league position, we are advising you to avoid picking an outright winner, and we can offer plenty of free betting tips on other enticing markets with far less risk involved.

Last five H2Hs: Goals usually follow this fixture

There has only been one occasion in the last five meetings between Reims and Rennes in which fewer than three goals have been scored. Clean sheets are very hard to come by which may make the BTTS market appealing.

Reims preview: Season has fizzled out

With just three defeats in their opening 11 Ligue 1 games, Reims had dreams of pushing for Europe but they are going out with nothing but a whimper. Les Rouges et Blanc have now won one of their last seven matches and look ready to call it a day.

Predicted lineup: Diouf (GK) – Akieme, Abdelhamid, Agbadou, Kone – Stambouli, Munetsi – Bojang, Teuma, Ito – Khadra

Rennes preview: An indifferent season through

Rennes have indeed lost more than half of their last seven Ligue 1 games, however, it is also just a sole defeat in their last four – which was a 5-4 crushing loss to Brest – so they are a side nobody can predict from week to week and make them a must-watch.

Predicted lineup: Mandanda (GK) – Truffert, Belocian, Wooh, Seidu – Santamaria, Le Fee – Doue, Salah – Kalimuendo, Gouiri

Arnaud Kalimuendo of Rennes
It's seven goal involvements in just four games for Rennes' Arnaud Kalimuendo – Photo by Icon Sport

Player to watch: Arnaud Kalimuendo

Two goals for Arnaud Kalimuendo will see him equal his best-ever goal tally which was with Lens during the 2021/22 season. Rennes' French ace has been in red-hot form over the last few weeks terrifying all defenders in his path.

Goals and assists are easy to come by

To say Kalimuendo is in the form of his career could well be an understatement because, over the last four matches, he's managed to register seven goal involvements. These include four goals and three assists.

The last time that Kalimuendo failed to get a goal or an assist for Rennes was back on April 13th against Toulouse, and that was actually a game Les Rouges et Blanc ended up tasting defeat in.
