Montpellier's proposed Ligue 1 season-opener against Lyon was postponed last week after OL's Champions League achievements. It means they kick off their top-flight campaign against a Rennes side who finished four places and ten points above Rudi Garcia's men, in the Champions League places.

After an action-packed draw away to Lille last weekend, will Julien Stephan's side continue their impressive H2H form against Saturday's opponents? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Rennes vs Montpellier Betting Tips

It was the captain – who else – but experienced defender Damien Da Silva to equalise for Stade Rennais away at Lille. Sure, it took 74 minutes for them to eventually score, but better late than never right? Especially during a match where they were down to ten men after Sacha Boey's dismissal in the 35th minute.

Three of Stephan's four substitutes were effective – teenage fullback Brandon Soppy, Romain Del Castillo and wonderkid Eduardo Camavinga. It was the latter's headed flick-on which proved decisive as Lille players were caught flat-footed and paid the price from a well-worked corner.

After recording 16 shots, hitting the woodwork and missing promising half-chances, they'll be itching to atone for those dropped points here. That's where Montpellier enter the conversation. Their last match before the coronavirus shutdown? A 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Rennes. You couldn't make it up!

Winger Flaven Tait – the one ineffective sub last week – starred that afternoon. After a mixed pre-season in recent weeks (W1, D2, L1), they look to avenge that March defeat in their curtain-raiser.

Gaetan Laborde has scored in their last two pre-season fixtures, while fellow forward Stephy Mavididi will be keen to impress after a £5.7m move from Juventus last month.

Rennes vs Montpellier Correct Score Predictions

Montpellier would love to begin the new Ligue 1 campaign with an away victory. However, it's fair to say there aren't many more difficult assignments than this one – they know first-hand. Rennes are unbeaten in their last eight H2H meetings, dating back to May 2016. I'd be surprised if that didn't continue this weekend.
