Occupying the sole Europa League spot, the visitors cannot afford any slip ups in this game as they look to maintain their league position or better still, climb further up the ladder. Either way, a win against this foe will be paramount in achieving their objectives.

Lyon, also, will have their sights fixated on the three points, knowing fully well that a win against this foe, with other results going their way, could see them clamber up to fourth on the log.

Lyon v Rennes Team News

Last time out in the Champions League, some Lyon fans will be forgiven for leaving the Groupama Arena prematurely after seeing their favourite side go 2 goals down just inside 33 minutes. In their defense, things were not looking good for Les Gones throughout the first period, as they even struggled to string up passes.

However, the hosts got the wind back in their sails once Houssem Aouar curled one into the far corner of Peter Gulasci’s goal to get his side right back in the game. Following the goal, the momentum remained with Lyon, pressing forward in numbers in search of the equalizer.

The pressure soon paid off in the 82nd minute as they beat RB Leipzig’s Gulasci in goal once again to book a spot at the Champions League knockout phases.

This uplifting result coupled with their 4-0 drubbing of Nimes in their last Ligue 1 fixture has set the home side nicely for this fixture against Rennes. They have been on a rampage in recent weeks, having admitted defeat just once in their previous four matches and are three points adrift of third place.

Their impressive record on home soil has paid a contributive factor to their recent league success as they have tasted nothing but success in three of their last five games at the Groupama. The 2-2 draw against RB Leipzig will live long in the memories of club supporters.

Rennes, on the other hand, will fancy coming away with a point, at the least, in this difficult away game at Lyon. Given they were in Europa League action against Lazio on Thursday, they have had two less days to rest, a factor which could give the hosts the upper hand heading into this fixture.

However, they were on fire against their Serie A counterparts, firing two unanswered goals past Lazio and will be looking to put in a similarly impressive performance here. They have scored seven goals and conceded just two in their last four matches but will be wary of their rather poor away record.

Save for their last 1-0 away win over 18th placed Metz, they had lost their previous five away games, a strong claim showing their away record has been awful this season.

Julien Stephan will be spurring his boys on to build on their last 1-0 away win over Metz by edging out Lazio in this crunch Ligue 1 fixture.

Lyon vs Rennes Predictions

Given that the hosts have had two more days to prepare for this game, they could capitalize on this advantage to see off this Rennes side. Home advantage is another important factor that could play a vital role in deciding the victors here.

Hence, Lyon should come away with a slight win over Les Rennais, with the visiting contingent bagging at least, one goal, before the end of the game.
