Rennes vs Lyon
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 9th January 2021
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park.

This should be quite a fixture as Rennes prepare to take on Lyon at the weekend.

Rennes are in good form and have won 13 of their last 15 points. Though their 4 game winning streak came to an end in midweek when they drew 0-0 at Nantes which would have been seen as a disappointing result.

Rennes are in 4th place with 32 points and are 4 points from 3rd, a win would put the club right back into the mix but defeat would leave them 10 points behind Lyon.

Lyon are leading and we are nearly at the halfway stage of the season. They have 39 points and are 3 points ahead of both PSG and Lille. A draw would keep them in 1st place but if they lose here and PSG win they would lose that position.

Lyon are in good form and have won their last 3 games in a row, in midweek they beat Lens 3-2. Lyon has the best away record in the league so that is a good omen for this game and they have won their last 4 on the road.

Rennes vs Lyon Head to Head

  • Last season Lyon won this fixture 1-0.
  • It’s been six league games since Rennes have beaten Lyon at home and we would have to go back to 2014 for the last time.
  • The last 4 league meetings have all ended under 2.5 goals.

Rennes vs Lyon Prediction

Lyon need to keep winning but away games are never easy and Rennes are a difficult opponent.

The value is with the home side and whilst Lyon have been brilliant it can be very hard under pressure as Lyon are to keep winning against difficult teams on the road.

Rennes do not have a great record at home to Lyon but they did beat Lyon away in their last game. So we will back the home side to get the win for smaller stakes and also the correct score at half time.
