Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Following a shocking loss to Montpellier, Rennes will be aiming to regain their spot in top five when they take on Angers in the Ligue 1 round 33. Les Rouges et Noirs are eager to represent France in European competitions for yet another term, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at les Scoistes. Cameroon international and former Lyon forward Toko Ekambi is pushing for a start, while all Xeka, Lorenz Assignon, Adrien Truffert, and Desire Doue remain in the recovery room.
Angers, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom with only 14 points on their account. Since the rock-bottom side have already suffered relegation, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise. All Ghoulam, Capelle, El Melalli, Salama, Chetti, Kalla, and Eneme-Ella are out of contention through injuries, speaking of the visiting side.
