Rennes will aim to remain in the driving seat for a podium finish in Ligue 1 when they travel to the Stade Auguste-Delaune to take on Reims on Saturday afternoon.

Bruno Genesio’s side rescued a point in a 1-1 draw with Nice last time out, while the hosts fell to a dampening 1-0 defeat to Troyes.

Agonisingly close to leaving the Stade de l’Aube with a point to show for their efforts, the 10 men of Reims held out for nearly 40 minutes after Azor Matusiwa’s red card and went close to winning it themselves through Alexis Flips’s delicate backheel just wide of the post.

However, deep into second-half injury time, Renaud Ripart ensured that the extra man would count for Troyes, as the 29-year-old rifled home the only goal of the contest to quickly put a stop to Reims’ five-game unbeaten run in the top flight.

Having drawn three and won two of their last five before the loss to Troyes – taking points off Monaco, Lyon and Strasbourg in that resilient streak – Reims have at least managed to stave off any brief relegation fears by rising to 13th spot in the table – nine clear of the bottom three.

Oscar Garcia’s side are highly unlikely to challenge for a top-half berth now, so securing Ligue 1 status with this extremely young side with minimal fuss is the ultimate goal for the next eight matches, and they will welcome a return to home comforts this week.

Indeed, Les Rouges et Blancs have strung together a four-game unbeaten run at the Stade Auguste-Delaune – although their last three have all ended in draws – and Rennes’ visit comes before a daunting run of home clashes with Lille, Marseille, Lens and Nice before the curtain closes on the campaign.

If any side was going to stop this rampageous Rennes side enjoying another goal-laden performance, it would be Christophe Galtier’s Nice, who put a stop to Les Rouge et Noir’s five-game winning run in the division at the Allianz Riviera last time out.

It was a tale of two headers in the French Riviera, as Andy Delort drew first blood for Les Aiglons following a sublime cross from Youcef Atal before Martin Terrier’s 17th Ligue 1 goal of the season restored parity for Bruno Genesio’s side.

Very few would have put their money on Terrier rivalling Kylian Mbappe and Wissam Ben Yedder for the Ligue 1 top goalscorer’s crown this term, but the 25-year-old has been at the heart of Rennes’ surge for a Champions League place, and such a berth is now theirs to lose.

While Nice falter, Rennes have taken advantage to rise to third in the table and open up a two-point gap over fourth-placed Strasbourg, and the runners-up spot is not out of the question either, with Marseille only three clear of their Brittany rivals.

Scoring a whopping 21 goals in their last six Ligue 1 games, no side has found the back of the net more times than Rennes in the division – PSG have also chalked up 64 from 30 matches so far – but rather surprisingly, Les Rouge et Noir have now gone seven matches without a win against Reims after a shock 2-0 defeat at home back in September.
