Lille vs Rennes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Tuesday, 4th February 2020
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
Both Lille and Rennes got wins at the weekend which has improved their standings greatly coming into this midweek game.
Lille beat Strasbourg 2-1 away from home to record a rare away win for them and that has moved the club up to 4th place with 34 points. The victory was important as it ended a 3-game losing streak.
LOSC will be happy to return home because even though they lost their last game here against PSG they have just that one defeat here and have won 8 of their 11 matches and have the 2nd best home record in the league.
Rennes closed the gap on Marseille at the weekend and were involved in a five-goal thriller winning 3-2 over Nantes. The club have really established themselves as a team who could well qualify for Champions League football now.
Form is good with one loss in their last five and they are unbeaten away from home in their last 4 games, their last away trip ending in a 1-1 draw with Nice.
Lille vs Rennes: Head to Head
- Last season Lille won this fixture 3-1.
- From the last 10 meetings Rennes have only won 1 game.
- The last 5 meetings have seen both teams score.
Lille vs Rennes: Prediction
Lille are very strong at home and even though Rennes have good form this could be one of their hardest games of the season. It might get physical and this is a big game for Christophe Galtier and boys, so they don’t lose contact with the top 3. They have tasted the Champions League this season and will want it again next season, they remain a strong side.
We also feel that Victor Osimhen is a great price to score anytime. He is a real danger and he scored against Strasbourg in the last game so get on him to do so again. Both teams to score looks statistically valid and is worth a stake also.
Lille vs Rennes Bet Tips
Both teams to score at 1.80 (4/5)
Lille to beat Rennes at 2.00 (1/1)
Anytime goalscorer: Victor Osimhen (Lille) at 2.50 (6/4).
