Our Prediction:

Rennes – Lille Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 09:00

Les Rouges et Noirs did well to beat Strasbourg on the road in their last league match, with the team putting an end to their nine-game winless run in the national championship, but beating Les Dogues is easier said than done. Roazhon Park will host Fridays football game between Rennes and Lille. Rennes are stuck in the middle of the Ligue 1 table ahead of the last game of the season and a win over Lille will see them secure a top-ten finish.

They have won three and lost two of their opening five matches. Lille have conceded five times so far with an xGA of 5.06 which are pretty disappointing numbers for the team that conceded the least goals last season. Both of these defeats however came with Lille suffering a red card.

Rennes drew 0-0 against a lax Brest side in what was a poor result but theyll be hoping to continue their good home record in the league here. Rennes played on the counter for most of the match and never really managed to get a stronghold in the match although they did create more in the second half. Rennes suffered a poor draw on Thursday as Celtic battled to make it 1-1 at Roazhon Park. Ultimately it was the match that Rennes should have been winning but some may have predicted this following their poor display in the league last week.

They have also been rather poor defensively with an xGA of 7.10 with three goals conceded so far. Rennes have scored six goals in the league so far but they have the second worst xG in Ligue 1 so these goals may dry up if they dont start creating chances of quality. Rennes have lost just two of their last 22 home matches with wins over PSG, Lille and Arsenal in there for good measure.

Les Dogues continue life without Pepe, who left the club in the summer, but they have been in a fine form at the start of the season. Les Rouges et Noirs aim to stay in top three in the Ligue 1 standings and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Lille. Lille recorded a win in each of their first three home games in the national championship, but given their poor away record, we predict that they are going to share the spoils with Rennes at Roazhon Park this weekend.

This season they arguably have the better team have started well and Lille have a recent poor record over Rennes. The problem for Lille of course is that they sold their best two players, and have struggled since, this is an away game and they had to play in midweek. All of this points to a home win. Rennes form has dipped recently but they have a great chance to put that right with a win at the weekend. Rennes had to play also where they drew 1-1 with Celtic in the Europa League but the advantage, they had there was that it was also at home.

His men struggled to score on the regular and in-form Victor Osimhen just wasnt enough to keep it going. LOSC have seen three away losses this term already and while theyve had more success in front of the home fans which sees them sitting just three points behind pace-setters PSG this will obviously be very worrying for Christophe Galtier.

Lille have conceded at least two goals in four of their last five away games and with Rennes scoring at least two goals in ten of their last sixteen home matches, were backing the hosts to score over 1.5 goals here. Neither team comes into this game in incredible form but with Lille so poor on the road, were going to edge this one in the way of the hosts. Rennes have always had a good record against Lille with them winning four of the last five clashes.
