NIM Vs REN Dream11 Team Match Report, Probable Playing 11 And Overview: Relegation zone slumped Nimes look to rake up their second win in succession today.
After a long hiatus, Ligue 1 sees itself thrusted in a hectic and congested period with the league seeing a slew of matches slated in this week. The new round of matches get underway today with Nimes and Rennes taking on each other in a crucial encounter for either side.
What would have been a complete mismatch had these two sides played at the weekend has been imbued with life given the set of events which unravelled in the bygone gameweek. Slumped in 19th spot, Nimes managed to curtail a hostile spree of defeats for the club to rake up a 2-0 win for Reims, the side’s third win in 20 encounters in the league.
While there is still massive work to be undertaken at club if they are to dig themselves out of the relegation battle, that win is bound to have imbibed some kind of life into a wavering season. And they’ll need to dwell deep into their repertoire of resources when they face off against third placed Rennes today, an outfit which makes for an extremely tricky challenger.
Althouhg Rennes were handed over a stunning 1-0 defeat in their previous outing, the side still make a foray into the fray of this encounter as outright favourites. They are up against a side who have lacked any kind of cohesion in either attack or defence, an opposition they’ll find way too easy to pummel on the day.
Probable Playing 11

NIM vs REN Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Rennes might have gone onto concede the last time around but with a mere 18 goals conceded all season, there’s no doubting their sound and compact defensive gameplan. And with their main shot stopper Edouard Mendy back for the side after recovering from his injury, we are going to be roping him in for this outing.
NIM vs REN Dream11 Defenders
Our reasoning behind picking up a slew of defenders from the visiting unit was not only down to their stern defence. They are up against an outfit which has scored a mere 15 times, an outfit which holds an extremely bleak and tepid chance of succeeding in their vigil of scoring against this Rennes outfit.
It sees us move in with Jeremy Morel and Damien da Silva from the side, two names who have been instrumental in incorporating an effervescent backline for the club this season. Elsewhere, we have the one name being brought in from Nimes as well in the form of Anthony Briancon given the players ability to instil impetuous into his side’s attacking sorties.
NIM vs REN Dream11 Midfielders
Although Rennes look likely to play around with their playing 11 for today’s encounter given the fact that fixture are coming in fast, there are some names we just couldn’t do without for the encounter. One of them was that of Raphinha with the player having scored thrice for the club this season to see us go in with him for the encounter.
With Romain del Castillo deployed as a striker for the side, he comes in as well from the unit while from Nimes we have the two players come in as well for well. We begin with Yassine Benrahou who scored for the club the last time around, putting on an instrumental showing for his side to help them to a 2-0 win.
Romain Philppoteax will be partnering him up to complete our set of picks from the side in this ambit.
NIM vs REN Dream11 Strikers
Rennes’ top scorer this season with the 8 goals to his name, M’Baye Niang becomes our first pick for this clash. He’s up against a defence which has lacked any kind of semblance and defiance in defence, shipping the 32 goals, something which could easily see Niang take his tally up today.
The five goals for him see Adrien Hunou come in as well for us while from the other side of the slot, the four goals for Renaud Ripart see him bring an end to our set of picks for this one.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Niang is our unit’s captain while Hunou is our vice-captain.
