Our Prediction:

Rennes will win

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

Lille had their chances but didnt take any of the three key opportunities they created. Lille were beaten 3-0 in the Champions League on Tuesday as Christophe Galtiers men got their first taste of European football following their 2nd place finish last year. Lille will be hoping to get back to winning ways here in the league but they havent been as dominant as they were last year. Ajax did and Lille were punished for it.

Ludovic Baal currently play for Rennes as a left-back and his contract with the Ligue 1 outfit expires on June 30, 2019. He found the net in a 4-1 win over Anguilla, with Gary Pigree scoring a hat-trick for French Guayana. Baal decided to represent French Guayana on international stage and he made three appearances for the team in the group stages of the 2012 Caribbean Cup.

The situation is so serious that if we look at the previous ten games, we may see that Rennes has third-worst performance. Their last three home games ended without a winner. The team from Lille drew their last three away games but more importantly, they lost only two of their previous twenty-three games in the league. One explanation could be that they are testing new players and new tactics because they are far away from both the relegation zone and the zone that leads to European competitions. Rennes played really well until mid-March. After that, they recorded only two victories.

This season they arguably have the better team have started well and Lille have a recent poor record over Rennes. Rennes form has dipped recently but they have a great chance to put that right with a win at the weekend. 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 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.

Goal Timings

Rennes is in the safe middle of the table without chances to reach places that lead to European competitions. In the previous round, Rennes played a fantastic match against Eintracht Frankfurt which they won. We already said that Rennes plays dangerous football at home, but the truth is that their overall performance is not so good because they lost nine of their last fourteen games.

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 v Lille Match Info

Les Dogues continue life without Pepe, who left the club in the summer, but they have been in a fine form at the start of the season. Lille recorded a win in each of their first three home games in the national championship, but given their poor away record, we predict that they are going to share the spoils with Rennes at Roazhon Park this weekend. Les Rouges et Noirs aim to stay in top three in the Ligue 1 standings and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Lille.

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.

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.
