Jérémy Gélin (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Alfred Gomis (Quarantine), Jérémy Doku (Hamstring Injury) and Dogan Alemdar (Corona virus) are not available for Rennes gaffer Bruno Génésio. Loïc Badé will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Team News: Reims
Thanks to a mainly full-strength group, there’s only the sole fitness worry for the Reims gaffer Óscar García to be concerned with. Arbër Zeneli (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out for this game.
Our assessment is that Rennes will, in all likelihood, dominate on the ball and be rewarded with decent chances.
However, Reims will be up against it getting goals although we do see them converting at least once as well.
We’re tipping a 3-1 margin for Rennes when the full-time whistle blows.
