After delivering a winning selection in each of his last five featured columns, SlipsTips takes a look at the Bet Builder market ahead of Nantes and Rennes' Breton Derby in Ligue 1 on Saturday

Nantes vs Rennes (Saturday, 16:00)

Breton rivals Nantes and Rennes do battle at the Stade de la Beaujoire in Ligue 1 on Saturday afternoon.

Nantes are currently occupying 14th place in the table and eased their relegation fears with a hard-fought 1-0 win at Le Havre last Sunday.

Rennes, on the other hand, have lost their last three league games and their season appears to be petering out as they look set for a mid-table finish this season.

Having said that, Julien Stéphan’s side should be fired up for what is one of the most intense local derbies in the French top-flight, so much so that I’ve identified a Bet Builder that holds plenty of appeal.

Combining both teams to receive a card alongside four or more match cards will bring about a backable 4/5 play on PaddyPower.

As already alluded to, there will be no love lost when these two local rivals lock horns on Saturday, so there is plenty of scope for a fiery-tempered affair in Brittany.

Hosts Nantes are averaging 1.93 cards per-game in Ligue 1 this season, not to mention they racked up no fewer than six yellows and one red during October’s reverse fixture between the arch-rivals.

As for Rennes, their yellow card per 90 tally this term currently sits at 1.79, with the visitors collecting three cautions when the sides last crossed swords earlier in the season.

What’s more, referee Willy Delajod, who has been selected to take charge of this Derby de la Bretagne dust-up, is averaging a shade under five cards per-game in the French top-flight this term, and he should be kept on busy Saturday afternoon given that sparks are expected to fly.

With all of this in mind, coupled with the fact that this Bet Builder has clicked in each of the last two meetings between the sides, supporting the same selection on Saturday makes plenty of sense at 4/5 (PaddyPower).
