After four consecutive draws in Ligue 1, Rennais will be looking to get the three points when they host Nice at the Roazhon Park in the 25th round of the French Ligue 1.
The Hosts to Break The Deadlock
The hosts have been in a very strange form in their past few weeks. The team have failed to win in any of their last five league games, but they drew four games in a row. Stade Rennais have collected a total of 4 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in Ligue 1. Their last league match was against Angers SCO away from home where they drew 0-0.
Stade Rennais are currently sitting in the 8th place in the league table. They have 32 points from 8 wins, 8 draws and 8 losses. The team scored 23 goals and conceded 27 since the start of the season.
Nordin Mubele came on for Aldo Kalulu mid-week; the DR Congo international could be involved from the off here. The absence of Ludovic Baal offers a bit of a conundrum for Christian Gourcuff; Ramy Bensebaini is a capable left back, but with Mexer and Gagnon are also doubts, the manager is in a tight situation as regards to his back four.
Nice Looking To Stay In The Title Race
The visitors are only three points off the top and will be looking to get them here. Nice have collected a total of 8 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in Ligue 1. Their last league match was against Saint-Etienne at home where they won 1-0.
Nice are currently sitting in the 3rd place in the league table. They have 52 points from 15 wins, 7 draws and 2 losses. They have scored 39 goals and conceded 18 since the start of the season.
Vincent Koziello and Malang Sarr return from suspension, but neither are likely to feature after Nice turned in a vintage performance at home to Saint-Étienne at the weekend. Valentin Eysseric surprisingly kept his place ahead of Mario Balotelli in the week; his inclusion gives the team more balance than Alassane Pléa but perhaps not the same potential for goals.
Head To Head
Nice have won 3 of the last 5 meetings between the two teams. The last clash between the two teams was in August 2016 when the final score was 1-0 to the visitors in the reverse fixture earlier this season.
