Two sides who have their sights set on securing European football this season, Lyon will travel to Roazhon Park on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Rennes may have failed to book their spot in the quarter-finals of this year’s Europa League, they are still enjoying a bright run of form in Ligue 1. In their 28 matches this year, they have recorded 11 wins, eight draws and nine defeats, scoring 39 and conceding 36 in return. With a points tally of 41, another victory on Friday would see the Black and Reds climb back into the Europa League positions. As for their recent run of form, Rennes have lost just one of their last five league outings and are unbeaten in their last seven matches at Roazhon Park.
As for the visitors, while Lyon may have also came crashing out of Europe earlier in the month they too are enjoying a bright spell in France’s top-tier. In their 29 matches this season, they have recorded 15 wins, eight draws and six defeats, scoring 50 and conceding 35 in return. With a points tally of 53, the Whites currently sit four points adrift of Lille and booking another campaign in the Champions League. As for their recent run of results, Lyon have lost just one of their last five league outings, but they have failed to win any of their last three away from Groupama Stadium. With eight of the last 10 matches combined between the two sides seeing over 2.5 goals at full-time we’re backing a similar outcome on Friday night.
