Reims comes from a very important 3:2 victory away from home against Evian last weekend, three pointer that means them so much in the relegation battle. They are now four points a clear from first relegating worried Evian and are in a must win situation here, as they later meet PSG in Paris and stand no real chances of getting a point there.
N’Gong has scored twice against Evian, while Moukandjo scored the third in overall, quite equal game from both sides, but the visiting side simply looked much more concrete and more dangerous with the ball to their feet, while the hosts were more and more nervous as the time progressed and couldn’t make any dangerous situation in front of Reims’ goal. Important central midfielder Antoine Devaux (28/1) suffered hamstring injury and will miss last two matches of the season. David N’Gong is set to lead their attack again after he scored twice last weekend, while the team has left back Chris Mavinga (9/0) and midfielder Alex Peuget (9/1) set as doubtful.
Rennes, on the other side, comes from a narrow 0:1 defeat at home against Bastia last weekend, even though the team played with a man more from 43rd minute when visiting midfielder Kamano got red carded. Things to be worse, hosts missed a penalty kick in 67th minute when N’Tep wasn’t precise. Danic scored the only goal twelve minutes before the full time whistle for a bit undeserved victory of visiting side.
Rennes had more of the ball possession and more chances created, but it simply wasn’t their day, as the team comes from second consecutive game where they failed to score a goal. However, they won’t be too downhearted with their performances, as the team is long time ago safe in the middle of the table, currently being at tenth position and can’t change their destiny much. For the first time this season, coach Philippe Montanier has fully available squad to choose from. Steven Moreira and Kamil Grosicki may be rested this time, while the coach will probably rotate his squad a bit more. They will most likely play with Toivoinen as their only striker here.
In case of a victory, Reims would secure their Ligue 1 status for the next season. They are coming from a morale boosting performance against Evian and will surely be looking to take the three pointer here, followed by a game where they’ll visit PSG next weekend. Competitive motive is completely with the home side, while the odds are more than worth a shot.
