Heavy summer investment meant Stade Rennais should expect to challenge for Europe, once again, but they find themselves languishing in the bottom-half of the Ligue 1 table as we return to action after the November international break. Rennes have drawn far too often this season, sharing the spoils in half of their 12 matches in the league so far this season.
Rennes have managed just two league wins and come into this on the back of a 1-0 loss at home to bottom-of-the-table Olympique Lyonnais a couple of weeks ago. That made it bac-to-back defeats for the side that have now dealt with the recent resignation of Bruno Genesio by replacing him with former coach, Julien Stephan.
Under the tutelage of the ever impressive Will Still, Stade de Reims are targeting a top six finish and European qualification in the 2023/24 campaign. ‘The Red and Whites’ begin the weekend sitting tucked inside the top five, which have begun to open a gap to the rest of the league. They are below Lille on goal difference and seven behind PSG at the top-of-the-table.
Their most recent outing was indeed against the aforementioned Paris Saint-Germain, with Luis Enrique’s league leaders putting on a clinical display, defeating Reims by three goals to nil. They have been generally very impressive, though, with six victories in their opening 12 matches and only PSG and Monaco scoring more than them so far this season.
THE TEAM NEWS
Stade Rennais have a couple of suspended players for the visit off Stade de Reims with both Warmed Omari and Guela Doue unavailable.
PREDICTED XI (4-4-2): Mandanda; Jaouab, Wooh, Theate, Truffert; Blas, Bourigeaud, Matic, Le Fee; Salah, Terrier
UNAVAILABLE: Omari (Suspended), Doue (Suspended)
Will Still is missing a few players for this weekend with the likes of Keito Nakamura and Ibrahim Diakite unavailable due to injury.
PREDICTED XI (5-4-1): Diouf; Foket, Agbadou, Okumu, Abdelhamid, De Smet; Ito, Richardson, Matusiwa, Daramy; Munetsi
UNAVAILABLE: Diakite (Injured), Atangana Edoa (Injured), Nakamura (Injured)
Ahead of the campaign, these two teams may have been expected to be competitive rivals as they both hunt European qualification. Rennes, after a couple of seasons qualifying for Europe, will now simply be looking for an improvement in their performances with the change of coach signalling an intent to get back towards the top end and they will expect to start his reign fast. Reims have a lot of good, technical players going frward and as one of the top scorers in the division, this has the potential to be an entertaining encounter on Sunday afternoon.
