The Canaries welcome Stade Rennais FC to the Stade de la Beaujoire on Wednesday for this Ligue 1 match. Nantes look set to finish the season comfortably in midtable regardless of the outcome here. Whereas, Rennes are one of four teams battling over the UEFA Europa League and UEFA Europa Conference League place next season and still have an outside chance of reaching the UEFA Champions League Qualifiers should Monaco stumble in their two remaining games. They need a win here to keep Strasbourg and Nice in their rearview mirror.
FC Nantes come into the match on a run of two league games undefeated. They have picked up nine points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.
La Maison Jaune shared the points in their last league match away to RC Lens, in a four-goal thriller. Expected goals of 1.8 to 1.3 in favour of Lens indicates Nantes were a little fortunate to escape from the game with a point. The result is particularly disappointing given the fact The Canaries were 0-2 ahead with an opponent sent off and only 25 minutes remaining.
Les Canaris's Moses Simon was in good form as he scored a brace of goals in the opening half-hour against Lens. Simon now has six goals this season in the league for Nantes and is 12/1 to get his name first on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 2-2.
Their opponent on Wednesday, Stade Rennais FC, come into the match on a run of two wins in a row while keeping a clean sheet in each. They have picked up 10 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.
Les Rennais won their last league match at home to AS Saint-Etienne. Expected goals of 1.3 to 0.6 in favour of Rennes indicates it was likely a fair result. Rennes's Lovro Majer was the matchwinner scoring late in both halves to bag a brace of goals against Saint-Etienne. Majer now has five goals this season in the league for Rennes and is 3.1/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 2-0.
