Rennes vs Lorient
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 25th February, 2017
Kick off at 19:00 UK Time
Venue: Roazhon Park, Rennes.
Rennes will be the favourites to win when bottom of the league Lorient come to visit Roazhon Park on Saturday evening. But Rennes are long overdue a win in the league which has now stretched to five games. In that time they have drawn four matches and lost one.
Their latest loss came at the hands of Marseille, but Rennes have always been more comfortable in front of their home fans and there is a quiet anticipation that their bad run can come to an end. But whilst Rennes have only lost 2 games at home all season they haven’t tasted victory here in two months.
Lorient are now 5 points from safety and a loss here and points for others and it seems that Ligue 2 could be beckoning for a club who have shown some bright sparks this season but have ultimately come up short on too many occasions.

We’re going to stick our neck out here and go for an away win, which will not be expected. Lorient have shown some signs they can improve, they have really dropped back though and this game is a must win for them. Rennes will be more comfortable with their position and are not in the greatest form.
