Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Rennes will be aiming to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Lens when they face Brest in the Ligue 1 round 5. The start of the season has been a mixed bag for les Rouges et Noirs, who sit in 13th place in the standings ahead of Wednesday’s clash. Rennes aim to return to winning ways as soon as possible, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Les Pirates. All Arnaud Kalimuendo, Lovro Majer, and Warmed Omari continue to miss out through injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
Brest, on the other hand, suffered an embarrassing 7-0 loss to Montpellier, and given their shaky defence, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from Wednesday’s showdown. Pierre Lees-Melou misses out through suspension, while all Christophe Herelle, Romain Del Castillo, Noah Fadiga, and Steve Mounie are out of contention with injuries for the away side.
