Lorient vs Rennes Head-to-head

  • SRFC has not lost against this side in their last 5 meetings.

Analysis

While Lorient were beaten away from home by Angers by a 1-0 score line in the league, Renne were held by Vitesse to a 3-3 draw at home in the Conference League.

Les Merlus were in a relegation scrap for most parts of the preceding season. Those days appeared to be a thing of the past as the side started the season brilliantly losing just one league until the start of October. Their recent run of games has seen them slump to 14th in the table as the side are now just 2 points clear of the 18th position.

After just a win in their opening 5 league fixtures, Rennes has grown from strength to strength as the season progressed and have emerged as the team to beat both domestically and in the Conference League. With 25 points they are a point behind Nice in the 3rd position and are top of their group in the Conference League, undefeated in the tournament.

Lorient vs Rennes Prediction

The hosts have scored in both halves in 5 of the last 6 league games and with them facing a side who have conceded an average of 2.60 goals in their last 5 games there is no reason to bet against the visitors scoring in both halves.

Despite losing just once at home in the league, le FCL are winless in 7 games and have lost 4 of their last 5 matches, with their current form it would be difficult to back them as they are going up against a team that is undefeated in 12 games. 

The home side has scored in all of their league games at this venue, while SRFC has scored in 12 consecutive games across all competitions, both sides are likely to score.

Lorient vs Rennes Betting Tips

  • Rennes to score in both halves @ 2.62.
  • Rennes to win and Both teams to score @ 3.60.
