Fixture: Stade Rennes vs SC Bastia
League: Ligue 1
Venue: Roazhon Park
Date: Saturday 17th December
Kick-off: 14:00 GMT
As Rennes sits just one point out of a Europa league spot, they are gearing up to face the Bastia side that is sitting uncomfortably close to that relegation line. The two sides have had drastically different seasons thus far and that doesn’t look likely to change this weekend.
Rennes is coming off a hard-fought 1-0 loss to Lyon and will be looking to bounce back with a statement win. The hosts are undefeated at home this season and have managed an impressive scoreline of 14-4 at Roazhon Park thus far.
Bastia, however, only have 14 goals on the entire season, which is tied for the second worst attacking record in the league. In cases the visitors weren’t low enough on confidence heading into this match already, we’re sure hearing that they’ve been outscored 14-6 while on the road this season won’t help.
Rennes are the definite favorites for this match and should have no problem dispatching an inferior Bastia side.
Even with the hosts heavily favored, they don’t have any prolific scorers in the side and for that reason normally only win games by 1-2 goals. Rennes should be able to contain Bastia’s non-threatening attack and find a way to at least score one. It should be a tight but comfortable win for the home side.
