Lyon vs Rennes

France – Ligue 1

Date: Sunday 15th December 2019

Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET

Venue: Stade Olympique Lyonnais.

Lyon are still trying to get consistency together although they have won 3 of their last four games. The club were always expected to finish 2nd to PSG and are currently 7th but are 9 points behind 2nd placed Marseille.

Lyon's last game ended in a superb 4-0 win over Nimes away from home and if they win at the weekend they could be in the top 5 depending on other results around them.

At home Rudi Garcia's side would be in 16th place and really need to improve their home form. They lost their last at home against Lille. But they have only conceded 5 goals at home despite their average record here.

Rennes are in 4th place and are 4 points behind 3rd place. They need to keep winning and need to keep up the pressure and the club have done really well so far this season. Form is great with the club and they have won their last 3 in a row. Away from home though recent form has been poor with just 1 win in their past five although it did come in their last game when they beat Metz 1-0.

Lyon vs Rennes: Head to Head

Last season Rennes won this game 3-2 in a thrilling encounter.

Lyon haven't beaten Rennes when being at home for the last 3 meetings.

In the last 4 meetings only once have both teams scored.

Lyon vs Rennes: Prediction

This will be a very good game of football and we expect it to be end to end stuff with goals. We will back Lyon to win the game as they have shown a lot of promise in recent weeks even if they have dropped some points they are playing good football.

But our main bets here should be on the goals market, and we expect the goals to go flying in here. There will be lots of opportunities and lots of goal mouth action. Rennes are a very confident team at this time, and Lyon will have to be at their absolute best to get the win here.

Lyon vs Rennes: Bet Tips:

Lyon to beat Rennes at 1.66 (4/6)

Both teams to score at 1.72 (8/11)

Over 2.5 goals at 1.80 (4/5)
