Rennes vs Clermont Preview: Can the home side continue their good form?

Rennes host Clermont on Sunday in a Ligue 1 match that both teams will be looking to win for different reasons.

Rennes are in seventh place and dreaming of qualifying for the Champions League for the second time in their history. They have been in excellent form in recent weeks, winning four consecutive league matches.

Clermont, on the other hand, are bottom of the table and in desperate need of points. They have only won one of their last 10 league matches.

Rennes will be confident of getting a result against Clermont.

They have a good record at home, having won nine of their last 11 league matches at the Roazhon Park.

Clermont, on the other hand, have a poor away record, having won only two of their last 10 league matches on the road.

Key Battle:

Rennes midfielder Benjamin Bourigeaud has scored 15 goals in all competitions this season. 13 of those goals have been the first or the last goal of the match.

Clermont goalkeeper Mory Diaw has only kept one clean sheet in his last 12 away matches. He will need to be at his best to keep out Bourigeaud and the rest of the Rennes attack.

Prediction:

I think Rennes will win this match. They are in better form and have a better home record than Clermont.

Rennes 2-1 Clermont
