Lyon vs Rennes – After losing to Nantes 1-0 in their previous Coupe de France match, Lyon will be looking to pick up a victory here.

In that contest, Lyon had 67% of the possession and made 14 attempts at goal, scoring once. Nantes had 11 attempts at goal at the other end, with 6 of those being on target. Nantes’ goal was made by Ludovic Blas (57′).

In their last six games, Lyon has tallied seven goals under Laurent Blanc. In those contests, they have been outscored by a contrasting total of six goals.

Lyon has lost all three of their league games to Rennes, according to their previous performances. In their last four home league games, they have not lost, and in their last two league games, they have not won.

Rennes will be looking to redeem themselves after losing their previous match in Ligue 1 play against RC Lens. Rennes had 56% of the control in that game and 3 of their 10 shots on goal were successful. Four of Lens’s twelve attempts on goal were on target. For RC Lens, Los Openda scored in the 31st minute.

A relatively small number of goals have been scored between Rennes and the opposition in five of their last six games.

Rennes hasn’t lost in any of their last three league away games going into this encounter.

Lyon vs Rennes – Betting Analysis

Looking at their most recent head-to-head matches dating back to December 15, 2019, we can see that Lyon has won one and Rennes has won four, with one match ending in a tie.

In total, there were 22 goals scored in those contests, averaging out to 3.67 goals per match. The teams’ latest league meeting occurred on Ligue 1 Match Day 11 on October 16, 2022, with Rennes defeating Lyon 3-2.

Rennes had 41% of the control that day and 5 of their 14 shots were on goal. Amine Gouiri (47′) and Martin Terrier (38′, 77′) scored the goals.

Lyon’s adversaries had seven attempts at goal, five of which were on target. (23′, 72′) Alexandre Lacazette tallied. Stéphanie Frappart served as the judge for the game.

From a group of players who are otherwise completely prepared, Lyon coach Laurent Blanc only has one fitness concern. Malo Gusto is no longer eligible due to a hamstring injury.

We believe that Anthony Lopes, Sinaly Diomande, Dejan Lovren, Castello Lukeba, Sal Kumbedi, Johann Lepenant, Mathis Rayan Cherki, Thiago Mendes, Nicolas Tagliafico, Alexandre Lacazette, and Moussa Dembele will be chosen by Lyon to play in the 3-5-2 configuration.

Bruno Génésio, the manager of Rennes, is presently dealing with fewer team options. Martin Terrier (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Xeka (Ankle Injury), and Adrien Truffert (Ankle Injury) cannot be taken into account.

With Steve Mandanda, Warmed Omari, Christopher Wooh, Arthur Theate, Hamari Traore, Desire Doue, Lesley Ugochukwu, Benjamin Bourigeaud, Birger Meling, Arnaud Kalimuendo, and Karl Toko Ekambi, we predict Rennes will choose a 3-5-2 formation. Although it might not be as many as Lyon will allow, we believe Rennes has the ability to break through their defense.
