Rennes vs. Toulouse – Prediction (Ligue 1 – 27.10.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

Rennes have won only one of their last five games against Toulouse in Ligue 1 (D3 L1), after winning the previous three. Despite remaining winless in their last ten competitive outings (D4, L6), Rennes can take confidence from the fact that they have lost only three of their previous 16 Ligue 1 (L1) fixtures here at Roazhon Park (W7, D6). Players to watch: Rennes striker M’Baye Niang has netted two of his three L1 goals in the ten minutes either side of half-time. Coach Julien Stéphan will, however, be concerned that his side are yet to keep a clean sheet at home in the top-flight this season. That’s an unsurprising statistic considering that 45.83% (22) of the shot attempts (48) conceded by Rennes on home soil have landed on target – L1’s worst rate.

‘Les Rouges et Noirs’ have not been behind at half-time this L1 campaign (W4, D6). Rennes have scored under 1.5 goals in six of their last seven L1 fixtures. Across all venues, seven of the last eight top-flight H2H meetings have featured a draw at half-time. Toulouse are unbeaten the four L1 games to date in which they have grabbed the match opener (W3, D1). There’s been four penalties, one red card and one own-goal across Toulouse’s five L1 away games to date.

Ahead of kick-off, Toulouse are on a dreadful run of 13 consecutive top-flight away fixtures without a win (D5, L8). Damningly, the visitors have conceded at least two goals in nine of those games, while just one has seen them shut out the opposition. Toulouse top league scorer Efthýmis Kouloúris has scored each of his four league goals after the break. On top of this, ‘Le Téfécé’ have conceded 2.0 goals per-game on average in their opening five away fixtures. Right now, that constitutes the league’s joint-second worst defensive record in away games.
