Rennes vs Lille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 24th January 2021
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park.

Rennes consistency is there in that they are not losing games but the odd draws at this stage of the season mean the club are losing ground on the top teams.

Rennes are 5th with 36 points and are only six points behind of the top teams. They beat Brest away from home in their last game and have earned 11 points from their last 15.

Home form is good but it could be better and the club have a 50% win rate here. They are unbeaten in their last 3 games at home and drew their last match here 2-2 with Lyon which was seen as a good point overall.

Lille are in 2nd place and have the same points as PSG with 42. It has been quite a season so far for the club who are hoping to upset the current star studded champions.

Lille have won 2 games in a row coming into this one and last time out they beat Reims 2-1. Away from home Lille has the 4th best record in Ligue 1 and have won 18 from 27 points which includes winning their last 3 in a row.

Rennes vs Lille Head to Head

  • 5 from the last six meetings has seen both teams to score.

Rennes vs Lille Prediction

In the league Lille have not won at this ground since 2010 but they will be seen as a team who should be winning this game.

Rennes can reel Lille in and go just 3 points behind them with a win or if they lose they would be 9 points behind. This is a huge game that has a lot of significance.

As for a winner Rennes are unpredictable but on their day they can frustrate Lille and we will back them to win this game. They will need a good start and will have to control the pace of the game.

We can’t see a one goal settling this match so we will back for there to be over 2.5 goals also in a match which has the potential to be very entertaining.

Rennes vs Lille Betting Tips

  • Rennes to beat Lille at 2.75 (7/4)
