Rennes vs Lille: Preview and Predictions

Rennes vs Lille
Ligue 1
Date: 21st October 2017
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park (Rennes).

The two sides are all leveled at six points each after a dreadful opening to the new Ligue 1 campaign for both Rennes and Lille.

The 10th round fixture at Roazhon Park will thus have a massive importance for both likes as this one could well prove out to be the turning point of the season for the side which is to take points here.

Rennes

Christian Gourcuff has a strong potential in the final third with Benjamin Bourigeaud and Ndombe Mubele sharing equally the tally of six goals so far in the season.

Problems, though, appear at the back as Rennes allowed as many as 15 goals which is why they only celebrated a single victory in nine outings.

Interestingly, it came nowhere else but at Stade Velodrome where Les Rouges et Noirs outscored Olympique Marseille 1-3.

Instead of backing up that fine display against the favourites, Rennes have picked up no more than a single point from the following four fixtures failing to find the net in last two.

Lille

The Great Danes have not been much better either as they also failed to claim more than one victory in eight games so far.

The famous Argentine manager Marcelo Bielsa had high expectations when he took charge of the team this summer, but his job will be well on the line in case of another failure against fellow strugglers.

Rennes vs Lille: Head to head

The two sides crossed paths this summer in the pre-season friendly which saw a 4-2 win for Lille.

The Great Danes have generally been the more successful side in the history of the head to head meetings with Rennes, but they left Roazhon Park victorious no more than four times on 22 occasions.

Rennes vs Lille: Prediction

Both teams have been struggling a lot to keep things quiet lately and we can hardly see them keeping their net untouched here as well.

The bookies are quite generous pricing the BTTS option up at 1.80.

Rennes vs Lille: Bets

The first bet is BTTS at the odds of 1.80.

The alternative option would be Rennes to win the match at 2.15.
