Stade Rennais have a bit of a reputation for always coming in at the middle of the table, but last season they managed to buck the trend in a big way. They ended the campaign in 3rd behind PSG and Marseille, which is quite a success all things considered. With Julien Stéphan at the helm, fans are hoping for another strong run in 2020/21.
The competition to get into the Champions League again will be fierce, though. The top online bookmakers give Rennes betting odds of 6.50 for a Top 3 Finish, implying they don’t believe their form is as strong as it was last year. Overall, the worst-case scenario for Les Rennais would be that they drift back to the middle of the standings.
Rennes Key Players
By far the most eye-catching member of Rennes’ lineup is the 17-year-old rising star Eduardo Camavinga. A product of the club’s acclaimed academy, this defending midfielder is one of the most promising young players in France – and possibly beyond.
A brief look at their key players reveals a tight focus on the midfield with a strong defensive line. Against most current trends, they tend to keep low possession of the ball and focus instead of explosive counter-attacks down the flanks. Besides Camavinga, Benjamin Bourigeaud provides a strong center, while players like Raphinha and M’Baye Niang are responsible for netting the goals.
With a total of €31 million in expenditures on acquiring new players, Rennes seem to be gearing up to give it their best.
As one of the top clubs from the French province of Brittany, Stade Reinnais contest Nantes in the Derby de la Bretagne. Also known as the Derby Breton, this match is historically contested between these two clubs even though it may refer to matches involving FC Lorient, Guingamp and Stade Brestois.
Stade Rennais and Nantes first went head-to-head in 1963. The Derby de la Bretagne would often decide which of the two clubs deserves to be called the ‘real capital of Brittany’. During the Derby Breton, both sets of supporters will proudly display symbols advocating their Breton identity.
Celtic symbols are displayed by Rennes fans while Nantes supporters will flaunt the Bretagne primary colours – yellow and green – portrayed on flags displayed during these games.
Rennes were founded in 1901. As one of the members of the 100-year club, Stade Rennais are also one of the founding members of the first division of French football. With no Ligue 1 titles to their name, Rennes have yet to experience the league glory. However, they did win Ligue 2 on two different occasions and won three Coupe de France titles, last of which came in the 2018/19 campaign.
Rennes put in a remarkable display to beat four-time defending champions Paris Saint-Germain on penalties. Their third Coupe de France title was also their first piece of domestic silverware since 1971.
