Our football match prediction:
High-flying Amiens will be looking to extend their winning run in Ligue 1 to four games when they square off against Rennes at Roazhon Park. The newcomers have been producing fine performances in their debut season in the French elite division and they are on the right track to secure the Ligue 1 survival. Amiens sit in seventh position in the standings ahead of the trip to Rennes and they are definitely capable of grabbing something from Saturday’s football match. Les Rouges et Noirs did well to beat Angers on the road in their last league fixture and they seem to be on top of their game at the moment. Rennes are on a three-match winning run in the national championship and we predict Sabri Lamouchi’s men will give fans yet another reason for celebration this weekend. It has to be noted that the two teams meet for the first time ever in the French top flight.
