Lille vs. Rennes Match Analysis and Prediction

After months of waiting, Ligue 1 is back in action this weekend. Starting off the games is side Lille and Rennes with each with a Champions League slot. The match schedules for Saturday with kickoff at 10 pm.

After the early curtailment of the Ligue One over coronavirus fears, Lille secured the third spot in the standings. This was one point short of third-placed Rennes that secured Champions League football this season.

Christopher Galtier was gassing up a wonderful start to Ligue 1 picking up six wins in the last seven games. This was before the unceremonious closure of the Ligue 1. Lille will feel more incentivized to break into the top three in the French League.

Throughout the 2019-20 campaign, Lille managed to suffer only two home defeats. However, the buildup to the pre-season has elicited mixed reactions from fans. Their last outings to AZK Alkmaar and Brest ended in losses. The side recently lost their talisman Osimhem to side Napoli after a big-money move.

Rennes, throughout their 119-year history in Ligue 1, finally secured Champions League football this season. Before the shutdown, Rennes ended in a triumphant 5-0 win over Montpellier. Despite picking only one win in their last five matches, it was more than enough to seal the top-four finish in Ligue 1.
