The record of direct confrontations of the last 3 years is favorable to the visiting team, which in the last 7 matches won 4 and drew 3. The last direct confrontation between these two teams, on 08-02-2017, ended with a draw by (0-0). Attention to the home factor, since the Angers usually conquer different results at home and abroad.
After 2 wins, 8 draws and 4 losses, the home team is currently in the 17 th position, with 14 points won. In their last match, they lost with Troyes away by (3-0), after in the previous match they tied (1-1) away, in a match against Guingamp. This is a team that, oddly enough, has had better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses in away matches; against 5 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses at their stadium.

The Angers is still living a very complicated moment in the French championship, since it has not won for five days, period in which it suffered three defeats, not scoring goals in any of them. In their last game, the team had more possession of the ball, however, failed to create good scoring opportunities and left much to be desired in defensive terms, being thrashed by 3-0. As we can see in this last day, it has a very fragile defensive sector, which is among the six that have suffered the most goals in the competition up to this moment. Playing in their stadium, Angers is one of the two that have not yet managed to win, having the second worst campaign in this condition. It is likely that 4-1-4-1 is the tactical scheme used in this game, with highlight for Ekambi in midfield.
After 5 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses, the away team is currently in the 9 th position of the league, with 18 points won. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Strasbourg, by (2-1). In the last match, they won in a home match against Nantes, by (2-1).

In the last 7 away league matches Rennes has a record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses, so they have won 8 points out of 21 possible. They have not been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 14 matches in this tournament, he suffered the first goal 6 times and never got the comeback.
The Rennes had many negative results until the ninth day of the French championship, but now it is in recovery, having conquered four victories in the last five days. The last of those victories was at home, against Nantes, in a very intense game, with good scoring opportunities for both teams, and the home team reached the winning goal in the final minutes of the game. Despite not being among the best, his attack improved a lot in recent days and managed to score goals in all. In the games away from home, the team is performing well, having conquered 38% of the points played so far. The visiting coach has changed the tactical scheme of the team a lot and will have to keep Andrés as a reference in the center of the field.
