Reims vs Rennes Predictions

Score Prediction - Reims 1 Rennes 1

Only six points separate 12th placed Reims and 7th placed Rennes, but that is not a true measure of the gap in quality between the two sides.

The expected goals stats have Reims as the second worst team in the league, while Rennes have become regulars in Europe over recent seasons.

However Reims have pulled themselves clear of danger with a run of seven games without defeat. Five of those fixtures were draws, and only one of their last 11 games has seen three goals or more.

Rennes are not great at converting their chances, so while they should dominate the match, a draw looks likely.
