Rennes -0,5 at 1.74
Football, France, Ligue 1.
I already said in a previous bet, Rennes is an ambitious team this season, they recruit Philippe Montanier as headcoach in order to change the boring and defensive mentality of the club into an offensive mentality. The beginning of the season is encouraging with 8 points in 5 matchs but we can expect better about the offense of Rennes who scored only 5 goals. To resolve that, Montanier will probably put many offensive midfielder tonight, indeed Féret, Pitroipa, Pajot and new player Kadir are expecting to start and surround striker Nelson Oliveira.
With these players, I think that Rennes will succeed to improve his efficiency in offense.
On the opposite side, Ajaccio is a solid but boring team, especially at away. The team hasn't changed of mentality with the venue of Ravanelli as headcoach, so I expect Ajaccio to try to close the game.
Big problem for Ajaccio is the absences of Pedretti and Faty who are the two defensive midfielder of the team, without them it should more difficult for Ajaccio to relaunch well and especially defend against the talented offensive midfielders of Rennes.
So, I expect a win of Rennes tonight.
