If the hosts fail to win this Ligue 1 (L1) clash against Strasbourg, it will be the first time since season 2015/2016 that any Rennes side has gone winless in five straight home fixtures in a whole L1 season.
After bringing back a good point from their trip to high-flying Montpellier (2-2) last matchday, Rennes are unbeaten in their last three L1 games (W1, D2). Home form makes for less comfortable reading though, with Rennes winless in their last five competitive home fixtures (D2, L3).
One consolation for Rennes is that they have won their last four top-flight H2H meetings with Strasbourg on home soil, scoring at least twice on each occasion (GF 11, GA 2).
Meanwhile, Strasbourg themselves are trying to put an end to a six-game winless run on the road (D4, L2) at a venue where they’ve claimed only one victory from their last 19 L1 trips (W1, D5, L13)!
Strasbourg’s recent unbeaten run in the league (W2, D4) came to an end last weekend, and having won just once in their last 17 away L1 fixtures (W1, D6, L10), an afternoon of struggle could lie ahead. Furthermore, ‘Le Racing’ have led at half-time on just one of those 17 occasions.
Players to watch: Rennes top scorer Ismaila Sarr has four goals in L1, but just one at home. Meanwhile, Strasbourg striker Lebo Mothiba has scored over half (five) of his team’s last nine goals in the league.
Stat attack: Rennes are without a clean sheet in their last ten L1 fixtures, with both sides scoring in nine games over that period.
The visitors have recorded only two clean sheets in their last 17 away L1 games and have conceded at least once in their last 11 trips to Rennes.
Don’t expect a draw – there has only been one in the last eight league H2H meetings at Rennes.
