On Friday night, Nice host Rennes at the Allianz Riviera, as the visitors attempt to consolidate their position in the European spots of Ligue One.

Nice have enjoyed an inconsistent campaign so far this season in Ligue One. Patrick Vieira’s team are currently 11th place in the Ligue One table but are just four points adrift of the top-four in the French top-flight.

A four-game unbeaten run in Ligue One has offered encouragement to everybody connected with the club that they may climb the league table in the near future. Last time out in the French top-flight, Angers held the home side to a 1-1 draw.

The draw was a rare low-scoring game of late in Ligue One for Vieira’s team, as five of their last seven league matches have produced over 2.5 goals.

Despite their inconsistent form of late in the French top-flight, Nice’s home form has remained strong. In fact, the home team are unbeaten in five league matches at the Allianz Riviera, having recorded four wins.

Nice have also been prolific of late on home soil in Ligue One, scoring at least two goals in four of their last five matches at home.

Rennes are enjoying a good campaign so far in Ligue One, sitting in third spot and the Champions League qualifying berth. The visitors are four points clear of fourth-place Nantes in the race to secure qualification for Europe’s elite competition.

A 1-0 win at Nimes last time out in Ligue One means that Rennes have won six of their last seven league matches. The visitors have been relatively strong in defence of late, keeping four clean sheets in their last six Ligue One outings.

Julien Stephan’s team has won their last three away games in the French top-flight 1-0. Forebet predicts that the visitors will record another low-scoring victory to consolidate their spot in Ligue One’s top-three.
