Rennes continue their push for a European spot in Ligue 1 as they face Troyes this weekend.
Rennes curent sit 6th in Ligue 1 with seventeen wins, five draws and twelve losses from thirty-four games this season.
They're not as good as they were last year but Rennes have had a solid campaign domestically despite underwhelming in Europe as they try to force their way into European competition in the final weeks of the season.
They enter this game in mixed form having won two and lost three of their last five matches, the most recent of which was a 2-1 defeat away at Nice.
It was an even game away at Nice and they'll be disappointed to have come away empty handed, but having conceded seven goals in their last five games their defence has been short of the desired quality to string a run of wins together of late.
Their form at home has been mixed of late having won two and lost three of their last five games on home soil, but having won their last two on the bounce they'll be confident coming into this game,
Rennes are three points shy of Lille in 5th with four games remaining so they're still well within a shout of Europe. They can seldom afford any more slip ups, though and need to win this game here.
Troyes are currently 19th in Ligue 1 with four wins, ten draws and twenty losses from thirty-four games this season.
It's been a dismal campaign for Troyes who are all but relegated as they find themselves twelve points shy of safety with four games remaining.
They enter this game in shoddy form having failed to win any of their last eighteen games in all competitions.
Such a run of form at the end of the season is always going to end one way and they can blame nobody but themselves.
Troyes' fans will likely be praying for the season to end and having failed to beat Rennes in any of the last seven head-to-head meetings between the two it's unlikely they'll take much from this game.
For our Rennes vs. Troyes prediction, we're going for a 3-0 win for the home side.
