Rennes vs Lyon
French (Ligue 1)
Date: Sunday, 2nd April, 2017
Kick off at 14:00 UK Time
Venue: Roazhon Park, Rennes.
Rennes come into this match having drawn their last 3 games and the feeling in the camp is that the club need just one more victory to seal their Ligue 1 status for another year. The truth is that Rennes won’t be going down, but neither can they claim a European finish either.
Their strength has been their home form where they have lost just 2 games all season and are the sixth best team in Ligue 1 at home. The problem though has been the amount of draws they have obtained at home recently which currently stands at 3 in their last four games.
Lyon are still flying high after their Europa League qualification to the quarter finals after they beat Italians Roma. They are in a European position but are just four points clear of the chasing Marseille.
Whilst Lyon has been superb at home their away form has been incredibly poor. They have suffered 4 losses in their last five games on the road.

Rennes vs Lyon: Prediction
Lyon are the better side but can they really be trusted away from home against a team who can more than hold their own? This is a very difficult match to predict but the double chance on a home victory or draw is a very tempting price.
