Troyes vs Rennes prediction, preview, team news and more

Sunday sees Troyes play host to Rennes in a Ligue 1 match at the Stade de l’Aube.

Newly-promoted Troyes currently sit in 15th place in the table, while Rennes are up in 5th following a strong recent run.

So will Rennes keep that run going, or can Troyes pull off what would be an excellent victory?

After a sticky start to their campaign that saw them win just one of their first nine games, Troyes have turned a corner in recent weeks.

Laurent Batlles’ side have now won their last two games, upsetting Nice before overcoming Reims last weekend.

A reasonably tight defense has helped Troyes thus far, as they’ve conceded 15 goals, less than nine other Ligue 1 sides.

Rennes meanwhile are flying right now, as they’ve won their last three games and are unbeaten in five.

This run has elevated them into 5th place, and they could move into the top three with a win here.

The addition of striker Gaetan Laborde appears to have helped greatly, as he’s scored four goals in his first seven league games for Rennes.

Troyes vs Rennes Prediction

This should be a great match between two of Ligue 1’s form sides, and it should be a close one to call too.

Rennes’ firepower may give them a slight advantage, but Troyes do have home advantage and a solid defense.

With that in mind, a close win for Rennes or a draw seems the most likely outcome.

Prediction: Troyes 1-2 Rennes
