Our prediction for this Coupe de France match:
On Sunday afternoon, the Rennes team are hosting the Ligue 2 side Brest at the Roazhon Park. So far, they have met 12 times, with Rennes recording eight wins and Brest only two, the last one in 2012. Brest have a good record over the last ten matches with only one defeat, to Lens at the start of December. In the other nine, apart from four wins, they have drawn five times, including the last match, against Niort. And, they have also been defeated only once in the last ten away matches. All of this means that they are currently sitting in the 2nd place in Ligue 2. Rennes are on a five-games unbeaten run in all competitions, which has taken them to a shared 7th place in the table and the next round of the Europa League. And their home form has picked up with four straight wins. They are favourites to beat Brest in this match.
