Lille vs Rennes
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 11th August 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy (Lille).
These were two teams that blew hot and cold last season but when Rennes found consistency they looked like a top 3 team.
What Rennes have done in the summer has been interesting as they have decided to play strong teams.
Most of these were from the English Premier League and the manager did not mind if they lost these games. He was only interested in the mental strengths of his club.
Lille have been quiet and their objective this season will be to finish in the top half of the league and try to qualify for the Europa League and have a deep run in the cup competitions, but they do not have a very exciting side this season.
Lille vs Rennes: Head to Head
- Last season Rennes won this match at Lille 2-1.
- Lille have not beaten Rennes at home in 3 years.
- 4 from the last 5 matches at Lille have seen both teams to score.
Lille vs Rennes: Prediction
Rennes remain the danger side here and we will take a value bet on this game and opt for Rennes to get the win and both teams to score. This is a risky bet and should only be approached with a minimum stake. We will also predict the correct score.
We expect to see a game with some goals in it and both sides can certainly play football. Lille will want to give a good performance with this being their first game of the season at home but Rennes look strong and more importantly are full of goals, which is dangerous for any side facing them.
