On this 25th day of the Ligue 1, OGC Nice will not have the easy part in Brittany especially that the Aiglons will know the results of AS Monaco and PSG.
In other words, the OGC Nice could be distanced before the kick-off of this meeting. The men of Lucien Favre will be under pressure, even if they have just reassured this week before Saint Etienne (1-0).
The 1-0 win in front of the Greens is a good omen before the trip to Rennes, but be careful, the Niçois have been rather feverish in recent weeks far from their bases, defeated in the Coupe de la Ligue Bordeaux, France Cup in France Lorient …
In the French Ligue 1 Championship, OGC Nice have not won since four away games, but except for a defeat in Monaco (0-3), Nice were solid in Paris (2-2) , Bordeaux (0-0) and Bastia (1-1).
Even if the goal is to take 3 points, a draw could already be a good result for the Nice. The club of the Côte d’Azur has just recovered Youness Belhanda and suddenly, his first regularization ended in a victory in front of Saint Etienne.
He is the master to play OGC Nice, so it could be decisive in Brittany. Attention, Rennes is solid at the moment, apart from the defeat in the Coupe de France in front of the PSG (0-4).
It is true that Rennes has not won since 8 days in Ligue 1, but the Bretons have just conceded 4 draws. During this period, they moved three times to Guingamp (1-1), Bordeaux (1-1) and Angers (0-0).
Rennes must therefore make these null results fruit by a performance at home before the OGC Nice. The mission will be tricky, because the Rennais are in trouble within their walls. They performed well until the beginning of December, but since then, the result is two defeats before Bastia and the PSG and a draw against Nantes.
With the departures of Ntep and Grosicki, Rennes lost power in the offensive sector, but defensively, the Bretons cling, so why not hoping for a draw!
