Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Rennes and Olympique Lyon square off against each other at Roazhon Park in a highly-anticipated Ligue 1 game. Les Rouges et Noirs faced no difficulties in a 3-0 win over Nantes, with the team moving closer to the Champions League berth. Rennes are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and it is no surprise the odds for home victory have been dropping. Defender Joe Rodon is banned for the match, while all Jeremy Doku, Baptiste Santamaria, and Warmed Omari remain in the treatment room.
Lyon, on the other hand, dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with Toulouse, with Peter Bosz losing his job. New boss Laurent Blanc is on a quest to bring glory days back to Parc Olympique Lyonnais, but given Rennes’ display in the crushing of les Canaris, home win should be considered. Both Romain Faivre and Julian Pollersbeck remain on the sidelines through injuries for the visiting side.
