Competition: Ligue 1
Market: Rennes to score over 1.5 goals
Odds: 4/5 @ 888sport
Simply hoping to return from the international break with a similar level they set earlier in the month, Rennes will make the trip to the Stade Gaston-Gérard on Friday evening.
Starting with the hosts, putting in what was another woeful display prior to the international break as they were hit with a 3-0 drumming away at Bordeaux, it is no surprise that many have Dijon tipped as an early-season contender for the drop. Spending the majority of last season’s interrupted campaign battling it out at the foot of the table, the Owls once again firmly find themselves at the heart of another crisis. Ending their pre-season preparations with a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Ligue 1 returners Lens, Dijon have managed to muster just a single point from any of their opening six top-flight contests so far this year and there is no doubt that they will face another stern test when Friday’s Champions League opponents make the trip to the Stade Gaston-Gérard.
As for the visitors, picking up a 2-0 win against Lorient during the international break and with a maiden campaign of Champions League football on the horizon, the mood in Rennes’ camp only remains at a red-hot high. While Les Rennais might have been disappointed to have only collected a point against Reims in a 2-2 draw earlier in the month, Julien Stéphan’s high-flyers have found a route to the top of the Ligue 1 table and will be looking to lay down another marker on Friday evening. Already picking up victories over Monaco and what was a 3-0 romp away at Saint-Etienne in their last appearance away from Roazhon Park, Rennes have enjoyed quite the free-scoring start to the New Year. Bagging over 1.5 goals in each of their last five top-flight contests on the bounce, we’re backing another fruitful evening on the road.
Bet: Rennes 4/5 to score over 1.5 goals against Dijon in Friday’s Ligue 1 contest @ 888sport
