We are chasing @5.00 odds on this French match

Only one card is needed to win this tip in the knockout derby.

The French top flight will play a midweek match, for which the best picks have already been published by the Logibet betting experts on the site. Let’s see now a very fat odds for the Clermont-Rennes match.

It looks like a real knockout clash, which is especially exciting because the French top flight is extremely evenly matched in the back section. For example, there are only nine points between leaders Clermont and 9th-placed Strasbourg, and 13th-placed Rennes are in no salvation – a defeat could see them close to the line.

Although they have progressed in the Europa League and are favourites at the Stade Gabriel Montpied, Rennes are one of the two teams that are winless away from home, and their 2 goals in 7 games is a poor showing.

But as indicated, we have hunted a tip from the card markets, and that is that there will be a red card in the match. There are several arguments for the odds of exactly @5.00, starting with the fact that two Rennes players were sent off in the last meeting between the two teams in Clermont.

Besides, the two teams tend to play colourful games anyway, with the home side sending off 2 players and the away side 3 so far this season, and in addition, in 23/24 season, no team has sent off more players than Rennes – five in total.

The referee will be 36 year old Eric Wattellier, who has 3 red cards in 7 league games this season, one of which was given in a Rennes game. The bold master’s average matches the odds, with 19 red cards in 96 Ligue 1 matches so far, but he is likely to improve his statistics this season.

We’re hoping for a tough match, and the odds set by the bookies are higher than we think is right – to say the least, a seemingly smooth PSG-Metz clash is only odds of 3 for red.
