Reims vs Rennes: probable line-ups, absences, refereeing, predictions and odds

After about 45 days without official games, Reims and Rennes face each other for the 16th round of the French Championship. The teams seek to start over on the right foot, even though they have different objectives within the competition. Rennes, one of last season’s sensations, is looking to repeat the dose this season. The team has 31 points, five less than Lens, current vice-leader and with a place for the next Champions League.

Rennes qualified for the Europa League last season and in the 2022/23 season they won nine, drew four and lost just two games in Ligue 1. On the other hand, Reims is betting on the home factor to continue opening up the distance from the relegation zone. With 17 points, the team is four ahead of Stade Brestois, the team that opens the French Z-4.

João Eduardo, Sectorist of the ENM Portal

“Rennes is one of the highlights of the season. The team has 31 points, with only two defeats in 15 games and in the search for a place in the next Champions League. I believe that even playing away from home, the team will win and remain at the top of the table.”

guess: Reims 1 v 2 Rennes

Marcella Moura, Sector of the ENM Portal

“Rennes is in third place in the table with 31 points and is looking to get even closer to the teams above, since the advantage is five points so far. Reims, on the other hand, is in 11th place and even if they win at home, they will not rise that much in the Championship table, and will still have a top team ahead of them. With that, I believe that Rennes should have an advantage even away from home.”

guess: Reims 0 v 2 Rennes

Ricardo Oliveira, Sectorist of the ENM Portal

“Rennes is in a good phase and, even playing away from home, they should be able to confirm their favoritism against Reims. The home team even managed to improve in recent games, which gives a positive hope for a good result. Despite this, the balance of Rennes must prevail.”

guess: Reims 1 v 2 Rennes
