Metz - Rennes betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 13:00 on 20/03/2021 played @ Stade Saint-Symphorien refereed by Willy Delajod

The hosts have everything stacking up against them in this match including the betting odds of 3.45. Metz will indeed find it very hard to beat Rennes here but nothing is impossible if you try hard enough.

Despite playing away, Rennes are more likely to win this showdown than the hosts. It’s not a done deal, of course. Considering the betting odds for an away win are set at 2.38, we’re in for a close game.

Metz’s 2:2 draw in the previous round may seem like a mediocre result at best, but the path to it wasn’t easy. They were losing at half-time as a visiting team against considerably stronger opponents - Lens , and it took a lot of effort to equalize after that point.

In the previous round, a goal in the first half against Strasbourg transitioned into a 1:0 home win for Rennes. This was a relatively predictable outcome, considering the 2.15 odds on a home win.

Metz have a strong recent history in terms of scoring as hosts. They bagged 6 goals in their previous three home games.

Rennes are here after a set of rather low-scoring events. The past two matches both ended up confirming the Under 5 Goals betting market and this is something to be taken into consideration ahead of this fixture.

Metz currently have a somewhat mediocre 7th spot in the standings. A Europa League qualification is 3 points away, but winning those points is getting harder with each passing round.

Though most teams are entrenched in their table spots at this point, Rennes will have to give it their all to reach the Europa League this year. With 4 points still needed, they’ll have their work cut out for them.

The two squads already met this season in the Ligue 1. As expected, Rennes took the win, though the match was a bit close. Either way, Metz have no history of beating the odds in this particular matchup.

Fortunately, none of the teams’ players has been injured or suspended recently. With their full lineups at their disposal, we’re in for an exciting match.

Our advice is to stay on the safe side and go for the Over 2.5 Goals market. It’s reliable, very probable, and available at odds of 2.50 if you use the bet365 sportsbook.

Betting tip (stake: 8/10): Over 2,5 2.50 at bet365
