Rennes vs Toulouse Predictions, Odds, and Picks
After winning five straight matches, Rennes was finally stopped last week at Lille with a draw result.
Under 2.5 Goals
Even though Rennes are high in the charts when it comes to goal-scoring, this time around they will be faced with an additional challenge in the face of multiple injuries that are hurting the team. Namely, they will be without their top striker Martin Terrier, while there are additional concerns for the manager Bruno Genesio.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
Even though this could be a tough battle between these sides, their h2h history speaks about how they usually both score when facing each other. In essence, that happened in seven matches in a row. While Toulouse has been struggling lately, they will be positive in thinking about how they can take advantage of the roster problems Rennes will have for this match.
Important information about Rennes vs Toulouse
Rennes will miss Terrier
Even though Rennes has been great with the diversity of their scorers, missing Martin Terrier will be felt. He is not only their top goal scorer but also someone who provides plenty of opportunities for his teammates. He has accumulated three assists this season, and multiple pre-assists which translated into goals. Rennes have scored 29 goals this season, trailing only PSG, and have surrendered their net on 13 occasions. Last season Rennes won both of their games. Without Terrier, Lovro Majer should get an opportunity to dictate the tempo for Rennes. Genesio will be careful with the tactics, another win would give his team some confidence before the World Cup break.
Rennes' potential starting lineup: Mandanda, Traore, Wooh, Theate, Truffert, Majer, Ugochukwu, Gouiri, Bourigeaud, Kalimuendo, Tait.
Toulouse had a good start to the season, but things have changed in the last few weeks. They are without a win for four out of their past five matches and are only four points away from the relegation zone. They lost their last two games without scoring a goal, but the good thing for their coach Philippe Montanier is that they don't have any availability issues to be concerned about. Toulouse has been struggling with goal-scoring for much of this season, nobody has more than three goals on their record which is a troublesome aspect of their season. There were too many games when the team failed to score a goal, and coming to face Rennes will put additional pressure on the team. This is the last match before the season shuts down for almost two months, so it will be important to get a positive result before the break.
Toulouse's potential starting lineup: Dupe, Sylla, Nicolaisen, Rouault, Keben, van den Boomen, Spierings, Dejaegere, Birmancevic, Aboukhlal, Ratao.
Rennes: Joe Rodon, Martin Terrier, Kamal-Deen Sulemana, Baptiste Santamaria, and Warmed Omari are injured, while Birger Meling is suspended.
Toulouse: No news to report.
