Rennes vs Nice

Asian Handicap
Pick: Rennes -0.50 AH
Odds: 1.9
Stake: 1

Match date: 26/02/2021

Rennes are not looking too sharp of late, having won only two points in their last five league outings and even those came in form of two stalemates against Lorient (1-1) and Lens (0-0). They followed that up with three successive defeats against Angers (1-2) in Coupe de France and two league losses against St Etienne (0-2) and Montpellier (1-2).

It's worth noting that Rennes are playing much better than what their record might suggest. Even in their losses, Rennes manage fairly high ball possession and tend to create many chances with the ball, however, they somehow find a way to score the needed goals. In other words, Rennes are not getting as many points as they deserve.

This gives me hope Rennes will bounce back sooner or later and start showing form they have towards the end of the year, when they went on a seven-game unbeaten streak.

Nice, on the other side, started to look good after they've changed their management, but most recently, Adrian Ursea's men have been struggling, Across their last five league games, Nice managed only one win against Angers (3-0), but lost the remaining four against Monaco (1-2), Paris SG (1-2), Marseille (2-3) and Metz (1-2), and now enter this match on a three-game losing streak.

In regards to team news, Rennes will miss only Faitout Maouassa, whereas Nice have much bigger issues on their hands. Outside of Youcef Atal, Nice will also not be able to count on Kasper Dolberg, Jeff Reine-Adalaide, Tony Lopes and Danilo. What makes Nice's injury list even more concerning is that it includes five key players, which won't help their cause tonight.

Neither side is in great form, but given how thinned Nice's roster is, you simply have to favor Rennes to bounce back from their slump and secure their first win in over a month.
