Lille vs Rennes
French Ligue 1
Date: 6 November 2022, Sunday
Kick-off at 16:05 UK / 17:05 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
Lille and Rennes take on each other in one of the most exciting games of Matchday No 14 in Ligue 1 on Sunday afternoon at Decathlon Arena – Stade Pierre Mauroy.
Rennes will go into this on a five-win thread. The visitors are also unbeaten in the previous nine league outings.
However, this phenomenal streak will face a serious test here against Lille who have also been on a great run of form themselves of late.
Lille snapped their three-win stretch by undeservedly falling 1-0 away at Lyon last time out. The team led by Portuguese manager Paulo Fonseca were a better side on the pitch throughout the 90 minutes of play but still ended up losing.
Lille play attractive football under Fonseca this season. They have bagged seven goals in the back-to-back wins over Strasbourg and Monaco before the mentioned defeat to Lyon.
The hosts have a true predator in the final third in the like of Jonathan David who is the competition’s third top scorer with 9 goals to his name.
However, Rennes have a pair of attacking predators in the likes of Martin Terrier and Amine Gouirio who have bagged 14 goals combined this term.
They were both on target in an easy 3-0 drubbing of Montpellier last weekend.

- Lille are unbeaten in the last six meetings with Rennes.
- Rennes have a dreadful record at Stade Pierre Mauroy where they lost 17, drew 9, and won just 2 of the last 28 encounters with Lille.
