Nantes and Rennes square off in a Ligue 1 fixture on Wednesday

Nantes and Rennes will play out another edition of the Derby Bretton on Wednesday at the Stade de la Beaujoire - Louis Fonteneau in Ligue 1.

The home side were crowned the French Cup winners on Sunday as they defeated Nice at the Stade de France. It was the club's first major title since 2001, so they'll be heading into the game on a positive note. They have been undefeated in their last two league games and played out a 2-2 draw at Lens FC last time around.

Rennes are also undefeated in their last two league games and secured a 2-0 win over Saint-Etienne last time around. They can replace Monaco in third spot in the table with a win here, as they boast a superior goal difference.

Nantes vs Rennes Prediction

The home side do not have a good record against Rennes in their recent meetings. They have a decent home record this season though and might fancy their chances of a positive outcome here.

They will likely aim for a finish in the upper half of the table and Rennes are probably the toughest opponents they'll face in the remainder of the season. They'll be happy to break their two-year goalscoring drought against Les Rennais and a win might not be the primary goal here.

Rennes have been in great touch recently and have kept a clean sheet in their last two league outings, though both wins came at home. Nonetheless, they have been the better side in their recent meetings with Les Canaris and we expect them to come out on top here.
