Rennes vs Lyon Prediction & Betting tips
The numerous sales of important players of Lyon this summer have had a positive part for the club that their coffers have received something more than 120 million euros, being one of the clubs more “collectors” of Europe of this summer mercal.
However, on the other hand, I think the team has weakened, leaving several players that made the difference and they are not going to be easy to replace.
Specifically, he would highlight the sales of Lacazatte to Arsenal (top scorer in the last French league), Tolisso to Bayern Münich, Gonalons to Roma de Monchi, international with France as Valbuena to Fenerbahce or Jallet to Nice, Mammana to Zenit St. Petersburg, Ghezzal to Monaco, N’Koulou to Torino.
And with all these people in the Lyon team could not get a ticket for the Champions, but had to settle for a 4th place that allows him to enter directly into the group stage of the Europa League.
In the first day of last week Lyon did not accuse the losses, to thrash 4-0 to a newly promoted like Strasbourg by 4-0. But eye has nothing to do with the difficulty of the 2nd draft.
Now they visit a Rennes who finished the last league 9th place, with the same points as Saint Etienne 8th, and only 9 points of the last place for the previous of the Europa League that obtained Girondins of Bordeaux 6th.
In the last league Rennes, 7th best team at home, won the majority of games played at home: 10 wins, 6 draws, 3 losses, 26 goals in favor and 15 against.
For their part in the first day of last weekend Rennes tied 1-1 in the field of newly promoted Troyes.
The most important signings of the Troyes for this season would be those of Ismaila Sarr (Rennes), Maouassa (Nancy), and Hamari Traoré (Reims).
