Match status: 2020/21 Ligue 1 - Matchweek 2
Kick-off:
Venue: Roazhon Park (Rennes)
Having failed to secure a win in their first league game against Lille, Rennes will be itching to bounce back with victory in this encounter. A team slowly growing to become a huge force in France, the efforts of Julien Stephen have not gone unnoticed.

Props to the French gaffer for the amazing work he has put in since arriving at the club. It appears he has got a good understanding of every single one of his players, having them ticking on and off-the pitch. For these lads, the sky seems the limit.

Meanwhile, Montpellier were made to wait for their return to action as their opening fixture against Lyon was postponed due to the latter’s late involvement in European football. As they make their bow this Saturday, expect a cracker in Brittany once the referee sounds his whistle.

Rennes vs Montpellier Team News

From all angles, Rennes’ 2019/2020 season can be termed a huge success. Having played so brilliantly throughout the season, a third-place finish is nothing more than deserved. Turning in some impressive performances, Les Rennais picked up 50 points from 28 games.

For their exploits, they made it into the play-offs of the CL, and are huge favorites to make it into the group phases of the competition. Now, the club supporters will be relishing the prospect of seeing their players lineup from the tunnels of grounds like the Nou Camp, Allianz Arena, and so on.
Always wowing onlookers with their scintillating piece of football, Rennes are fast-moving as one of the most improved sides in Europe over the last couple of years. Last time out in the league, they were faced with the task of toppling a strong Lille side in unfamiliar territory.

With the bookies tipping the game to go either way, a draw looked a fair outcome between these sides. Matching one another toe-to-toe, both teams were desperate for the win. The first goal of the game arrived on 40 minutes when Lille’s Bamba rocketed a fierce strike into the top corner of the net.

As the clock wound down, Les Rennais pushed for an equalizer, all to no avail. However, a moment of brilliance from Da Silva produced a beauty of a goal to salvage a point for the visitors. Stephen could not hide his excitement as he was sent into frenzy down the touchline.

While Rennes were digging really deep to avoid defeat at Stade Pierre-Mauroy, Montpellier were forced to watch the opening Ligue 1 fixtures from their home. Their game against Lyon was postponed due to Les Gones’ involvement in the latter stages of the just-concluded Champions League.

Even though Montpellier have not played a single competitive fixture since March, they had been preparing for the new season with a couple of friendly games. However, La Paillade were far from impressive in the off-season, winning just one of four games.

It might be of interest that the singular victory came against Ligue 2 outfit Rodez last time out, comfortably dispatching the minnows in a 4-1 clash.

Rennes vs Montpellier Predictions

Montpellier ended last season very poorly and carried on this horrendous form into their pre-season games. As at now, these players are not fond of victories as they can count their recent wins on one hand. Meanwhile, Rennes are desperate for their first win of the season after holding Lille to a one-all draw last weekend. By all means, expect the hosts to post all three points here.
