Rennes – Lille Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 09:00

Christophe Galtier is doing a great job with the Stade Pierre-Mauroy outfit and, as a result, his men will represent France in the Champions League next term. Lille aim to put icing on the cake on a very successful season with a win over Rennes, but seeing that les Rouges et Noirs are tough to beat at home, the visitors should be happy with one point from the match as well.

Their best performances are at the start of the new season and in the end when they fight against relegation. Some might say that it was surprising, but if we analyze more in-depth, we can see that Rennes plays serious football whenever it is necessary. The next game is of no significance for Rennes, but they still may choose to go for a win against, once the most hated club in entire Germany, LOSC.

Rennes v Lille Match Prediction

Roazhon Park will host Fridays football game between Rennes and Lille. Rennes are stuck in the middle of the Ligue 1 table ahead of the last game of the season and a win over Lille will see them secure a top-ten finish. Les Rouges et Noirs did well to beat Strasbourg on the road in their last league match, with the team putting an end to their nine-game winless run in the national championship, but beating Les Dogues is easier said than done.

Niang MBaye is the top goal scorer in Rennes squad at the moment. The team from Lille is recognized as the team with the best defense in the league. Hatem Ben Afra and Benjamin Borigeaud are also in great shape. Nicolas Pepe is an absolute star in his team because he scored twenty-two times in the current season. When LOSC plays away matches, there are under 2.5 goals on average. He scored nine times so far and together with his Senegalese teammate Ismaila Sarr they make tremendous offensive duo.

This season they arguably have the better team have started well and Lille have a recent poor record over Rennes. The problem for Lille of course is that they sold their best two players, and have struggled since, this is an away game and they had to play in midweek. All of this points to a home win. Rennes form has dipped recently but they have a great chance to put that right with a win at the weekend. Rennes had to play also where they drew 1-1 with Celtic in the Europa League but the advantage, they had there was that it was also at home.

They do have a three-match winless streak behind them and a lot to prove, but we feel theyre still in a better place at this point. Rennes will now hope to capitalize on such woes and they have shown off as a very tough side to beat at this ground, holding Celtic (1-1) to a draw in Europa League midway through the week.

Rennes Preview

They have also been rather poor defensively with an xGA of 7.10 with three goals conceded so far. Rennes have scored six goals in the league so far but they have the second worst xG in Ligue 1 so these goals may dry up if they dont start creating chances of quality. Rennes have lost just two of their last 22 home matches with wins over PSG, Lille and Arsenal in there for good measure.

Lille have conceded at least two goals in four of their last five away games and with Rennes scoring at least two goals in ten of their last sixteen home matches, were backing the hosts to score over 1.5 goals here. Neither team comes into this game in incredible form but with Lille so poor on the road, were going to edge this one in the way of the hosts. Rennes have always had a good record against Lille with them winning four of the last five clashes.

Rennes drew 0-0 against a lax Brest side in what was a poor result but theyll be hoping to continue their good home record in the league here. Rennes played on the counter for most of the match and never really managed to get a stronghold in the match although they did create more in the second half. Rennes suffered a poor draw on Thursday as Celtic battled to make it 1-1 at Roazhon Park. Ultimately it was the match that Rennes should have been winning but some may have predicted this following their poor display in the league last week.
