Rennes vs Lille
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 22nd September 2019
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park (Rennes)
Rennes have had a great start to the league and are in 2nd place and only 2 points behind league leaders PSG. However, the last two games have been difficult for the side who lost to Nice 2-1 and then the following week could only draw against newly promoted Brest.
The club returning back home will be looking to get back on track where they have already beaten PSG here. Rennes have been famous for having a solid record at home and they will feel they can get something here. The last thing they will want is to see their good start diminished.
Lille were involved in the Champions League in midweek, but they lost their first game 3-0 away to Ajax. So they come here not in good spirits and away from home and having to cross the country from West to East.
Lille are in 5th place and could go past Rennes with a win. They have won 3 games this season but lost 2 and remain inconsistent so far. Last weekend they beat Angers 2-1, but they have already lost to Amiens and Reims, and have not been good on the road.
Rennes vs Lille: Head to Head
- Rennes have won 5 from the last six meetings between the two sides.
- The last four meetings have seen both teams to score.
- Lille have 1 win from the last 9 meetings.
- 3 of the last four meetings have seen the highest number of goals occur in the second half.
Rennes vs Lille: Prediction
Rennes form has dipped recently but they have a great chance to put that right with a win at the weekend. This season they arguably have the better team have started well and Lille have a recent poor record over Rennes. All of this points to a home win. 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. 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.
