Assessing the statistics of Rennes and Nantes, one can notice characteristic patterns that determine the forecast for the upcoming match. Rennes have a significant advantage in possession, which was evident in the match against Montpellier, where they dominated with 63% ball control. Their attacking prowess was demonstrated in the match against Maccabi Haifa, which shows their high attacking potential. However, the penchant for draws in five of the last six matches indicates the team's inability to capitalize on its opportunities and achieve victory.
Nantes, on the contrary, demonstrates a more balanced game, in which there are both victories and defeats. Despite this, the five goals scored against Lorient demonstrate a solid attack, which contrasts with the fragility of the defense, as evidenced by the eleven goals conceded in six matches.
As for previous meetings, Rennes has a significant advantage, having won four of the last five matches. This historical dominance, coupled with Nantes' defensive weaknesses, sways the choice in favor of Rennes, albeit with caution given the recent string of draws.
In additional statistics such as shots on goal, Rennes consistently outperforms Nantes, further strengthening their attacking advantage. However, Nantes' recent big win could signal a resumption of play, which could catch Rennes off guard and is something to watch out for.
Event: Match outcome
Bid: Win Rennes, CF 1. 55
Why: Rennes have a historic advantage, having won four of their last five meetings with Nantes. Despite a recent run of draws, their strong possession and attacking numbers suggest they are firmly in control of the game, which is likely to result in at least a draw. The weakness of Nantes' defense further strengthens this bet, increasing Rennes' chances of victory.
Event: Total goals
Bid: Total goals bmore than 2.5, CF 1. 70
Why: Both teams tend to play matches with over 1.5 goals. Nantes' defense is vulnerable, conceding 11 goals in 6 matches, which makes a scenario with a total of more than 2.5 goals likely. This is also consistent with the average goals per match statistics for both teams.
Given the statistics of both teams, a game with more than 2.5 goals is likely. Nantes' defensive vulnerabilities and Rennes' home advantage make this a value bet with good odds and low risk compared to other options.
Event: Corners: Outcomes
Bid: Corners: Win Rennes, CF 1. 47
Why: Historically and recently, Rennes has consistently surpassed Nantes in the number of corner kicks won. Their aggressive attacking strategy and dominance in possession confirms this trend, making this a profitable bet.
