Champions-league-chasing Rennes travel to the South of France on Saturday to face Ligue 1 drop boys Toulouse in what is expected to be a straight forward encounter for the visitors.
The hosts who continue to look for their first win in 2020 welcome a Rennes side with eyes firmly set on Europe to the Stadium de Toulouse.
Rennes who currently sit in 3rd place on 44 points—one point above Lille in 4th place—are looking to strengthen their lead in the champions league spot.
The home team will be without goalkeeper Lovre Kalinic (thigh), Kalidou Sidibe (groin) for the encounter, while Kelvin Amian remains an injury doubt.
Injury-hit Rennes remain without Jonas martin (thigh), Clement Grenier (muscle), Metehan Guclu (broken hipbone), Johansson Jakob, and Nyamsi (knee) for the match.
Head to Head
The visitors enjoy a superior head-to-head record to their hosts, with the host failing to win in their last five encounters in all competitions.
The visitors ran out 3-2 winners in the reverse fixture this season.
Toulouse remains rooted in the 20th position, having picked up a single point in the last available 15, meaning that they remain the team with the worst form in Ligue 1.
Rennes meanwhile have endured a poor run of form as they have picked up just seven points from the last 15 available.
Monaco last five matches in all competitions: LLLLD
Reims last five games in all competitions: WLDLW
It seems only a matter of time before Toulouse is confirmed relegated to the French second division after a season that has had nothing to offer fans apart from defeats after defeats.
The home side is winless in their last 16 league games and 15 of those matches have ended in losses.
They have also conceded the average of more than 2 goals per game this season and remain the only team in the division not to have drawn a home game so this game would be a win or a loss for them.
Rennes lost their last away game 1-0 and that was the 8th consecutive away game they have played that has been separated by a difference of just one goal.
Rennes would be hoping to score first in this game as five of their last six away games have seen just one of the teams scored, they have also kept a clean sheet in their last 8th away wins as well.
Rennes to win @ 11/10
Both Teams to Score/No @ 19/20
Under 2.5 Goals @ 4/5
