Match Preview
Ahead of this round seven match, Amiens (19th) are in a struggle at the wrong end of the Ligue 1 (L1) table, whilst Rennes (14th) are yet to grab a win on the road in this campaign (D2, L1).
With just one win in their first six L1 fixtures (W1, D1, L4), Amiens come into this one on the back of two straight losses. ‘Les Picards’ (AMI) play offensively at home, scoring at least two goals in six of their last seven league games at the Stade de la Licorne, returning a positive record of: W4, D1, L2.
Recording only one point on the road out of the last nine possible (D1, L2), Sabri Lamouchi’s Rennes side have conceded at least two goals in their last three L1 away fixtures for the first time since April / May 2016! The last time that Rennes failed to win any of their first four L1 away fixtures was in 2016/17, when they finished ninth.
In four previous H2H meetings (across France’s top two leagues), Amiens have never beaten their visitors (D1, L3), conceding three times as many as they have scored (GF 2, GA 6) in the process! Additionally, the last three encounters (across both leagues) between the two sides have ended 2-0 to Rennes.
Players to watch: Amiens’ striker Moussa Konate is doing well this season, scoring three goals – all in the second-half. Meanwhile, Rennes’ 20-years-old striker Ismaila Sarr has two league goals this season.
Stat attack: Four out of the last five games involving Amiens have seen over 2.5 goals scored.
On average, Amiens register just 2.7 corners per game, making them the lowest ranked team for corners in the league (16 in total).
Rennes have scored first in each of their last seven games across all competitions.
