Kick-off:
Venue: Roazhon Park (Rennes)

With 37 points amassed from 21 games, nobody can have any complaints about Rennes’ current league position. In truth, they have worked their asses off to get here and deserve every single plaudit they have been receiving.

Roazhon Park hosting Nantes on Friday evening, the visitors, who have sprung forth their own fair share of surprises this campaign, will be looking to give Rennes a run for their money. Expect an exciting and enthralling game in Rennes.

Rennes vs Nantes Team News

Rennes will be heading into this game in high spirits following their thrilling encounter over Angers elsewhere in the Coupe de France last time out. Though overwhelming favorites for the win, Les Rennais were made to scrap really hard to nick the victory against a resilient Angers side.

The game dragged on into extra-time, it was Julien Stephan’s men who were celebrating victory at the sound of the final whistle, posting a massive 5-4 scorecard. It was a really frantic game at the Stade Raymond Kopa and the result could easily have gone either way.

Having secured a spot in the competition’s quarter-final phases, the home side will now turn their attention back to Ligue 1 football where they have tough customers Nantes awaiting.

The Red and Blacks have put in a good shift in recent weeks, having bagged three wins and a draw in their last four outings, including a high-profile 1-0 over Nimes in the Ligue 1. Julien Stephan’s men have been in great form up-front and building on such a streak could prove crucial.

Nantes, on the other hand, are showing no signs of slowing down in their bid to salvage something meaningful this campaign. Sitting sixth on the standings, just five points adrift of this weekend’s opposition, there is a real belief about the club that they can climb further up the ladder.

For this, they will have to maintain their good run of form by claiming an unlikely win against this imperious Rennes side. Their last two games have not exactly been ideal, falling to defeats at the hands of Lyon in the Coupe de France and Bordeaux in the Ligue 1.

With La Maison Jaune itching to set the record straight this weekend, the hosts will have to be wary of a Nantes backlash. The visiting contingent have all it takes to stage an upset against Rennes but will have their work cut-out in a bid to make this a reality.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Rennes: Jakob Johansson, Jonas Martin.

Nantes: Fabio, Marcus Coco, Nicolas Pallois, Kalifa Coulibaly, Andrei Girotto.
