Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Stade Oceane will host Sunday’s matinee between Le Havre and Rennes, the two mid-table sides. Les Ciel et Marine aim to move closer to the Conference League berth and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against the Les Rouges et Noirs. Barring any fresh injury worries, Luka Elsner is unlikely to make changes to the team that shared the spoils with Monaco.
Both Abdoulaye Toure and Mohamed Bayo are back from suspension. Rennes, meanwhile, look unstoppable at the moment, with the team eyeing their fifth consecutive win in the French top flight. As the visitors are eager to move closer to the Conference League berth, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on the visiting team. Both Jeanuel Belocian and Fabian Rieder are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the away team ahead of the trip to Normandy.
Highlighted Team (Rennes):
Stade Rennais Football Club or simply Rennes is a French football club which was founded on March 10, 1901.

Speaking of Coupe de la Ligue, les Rouges et Noirs made it to the final of the competition in the 2012/2013 season, but they were beaten by Saint Etienne (1-0) in the title game at Stade de France.
