Rennes vs Lyon Prediction & Betting tips
The Stade Rennes FC ended a historic season in the Europa League two weeks ago. For the first time, the Bretons qualified for the play-offs, but lost to the Gunners despite a 3-1 home win in the first leg, as the return leg in North London went 3-0. In Ligue 1, the red and black are currently in eighth place, so a renewed qualification for the European stage is quite possible. Only six points off the gap to Olympique Marseille, who are currently fourth, but have also played one more game. Maybe even the fifth place will be enough for Rennes as in the previous year. For the guests from Lyon also recently came the break in the European business. The Gones in turn had to bow to FC Barcelona. With 1: 5, the team went down in Camp Nou, because Lionel Messi with two goals and assists once again became the match winner.
In the domestic league Olympique Lyon fights for the second place, which brings a direct qualification for the Champions League. At the moment, there are only four points left on Lille, who lost a home defeat against the rejuvenated Kicker from Monaco last night. For both clubs it is about very important points. In Rennes against Lyon, the odds fall slightly in favor of the guests who have not lost since four away games in Brittany. The Rennes against Lyon Tipp, however, aims to score goals on both sides. Lyon have the second best offensive after PSG and Rennes is also very accurate at home – read on only two of 14 home games without own goal celebrations. The Rennes against Lyon forecast provides for a 5 units bet.
The Rouges et Noirs can in the match against Lyon mainly rely on their home strength: For more than a quarter of a game was lost on home territory. Instead, no fewer than ten wins have been scored and four points shared. Even the Arsenal FC was in the Europa League in his guest appearance a 1: 3 defeat. A guarantee for the good performance in Roazhon Park is the reliable offensive, which does not shine with a striking goalgetter, but real teamwork delivers.
For example, coach Julien Stephan, whose father Guy Stephan also works as a trainer, is currently working as an assistant coach for the French national team on several dangerous offensive players. One example is Senegalese M’Baye Niang, who came from Turin FC in the summer and secured a deserved point in the away game in Bordeuax on the final day of the game with his last-minute goal in the 91st minute. During the international break, he also continued immediately and scored both goals in the 2-0 of his home country against Madagascar in the qualification for the Africa Cup. Also worthy of mention would be the 25-year-old Frenchman Benjamin Bourigeaud, who has scored three of his last five appearances for the two-time cup winner.
For Olympique Lyon, it was before the international break a harsh 1: 5 swatter in the Champions League in Barcelona, which said the twelve-time champion from the competition adopted. A defeat, but the Elf has put away well, because only four days later, the next three in the domestic league against HSC Montpellier was retracted. A win that would have been even higher if Nabil Fekir had converted his penalty in the second half of the game. After all, the third-best away team was defeated with the South of France and the fundamental upward trend of recent weeks has been confirmed.
Away, Lyon have remained without a win for three games, although opposition to teams like Nice and Strasbourg has been quite strong. Despite this unusual dry spell OL is still one of the strongest clubs in the French upper house, since only PSG, Lille and the aforementioned kicker from Montpellier can show a better yield. In particular, the offensive is usually very dangerous in foreign countries. Thus, only the champion from Paris has met more often in his guest performances to date.
A parallel to Rennes is the broad-based offensive of Lyon. Whether the mentioned Frenchman Nabil Fekir with nine goals or Moussa Dembele with twelve goals – only two players of several who often act very efficiently in front of the opponent’s box this season. Especially the latter striker is currently unstoppable. The new signing of Celtic scored only five goals in his recent four appearances. In Rennes against Lyon are therefore the odds for another goal success of Dembele of interest. At wetten.com, they are available for the next goal of the attacker for the match between Rennes and Lyon odds at a height of 2.10 available. Thanks to the numerous offensive options, Lyon can basically resort to various match plans, which makes tactical targeting difficult for the opponent to anticipate. A plus, but as described also has the upcoming opponent.
