Reason For Lyon vs Rennes Betting Tips

  • Rennes have lost five of their last six away games.
  • Lyon have won three of their last five home matches.
  • Lyon have also picked up 15 of their last 21 possible points in the league.

The wind back in Lyon’s favour

Lyon found themselves 2-0 down after 33 minutes on Wednesday as they prepared themselves for disappointment again in Europe. However, les Gones got the wind back in their sails the minute Houssem Aouar’s beautiful shot curled into Péter Gulásci’s goal which led on to them scoring an equaliser in the 82nd minute, earning them the necessary point to send them to the knockout stage.

This result paired with their 4-0 drubbing of Nîmes last week has got the momentum back on Lyon’s side and they’ll be looking to take that into this clash with Rennes. They’ve now lost just one of their last four matches and sit within three points of third. Les Gones’ home form has been a particularly contributive factor to their recent success as they’ve won three of their last five matches at the Groupama with their aforementioned draw with Leipzig thrown in there for good measure. Les Gones have scored nine goals and conceded five in that time. 

Rennes’ inconsistent away form

Rennes will also be fancying themselves here though as they travel to Lyon. Julien Stéphan’s men have been in great form recently with four wins on the trot bringing smiles back to the fans’ faces. Their most recent victory came on Thursday as they beat Lazio 2-0 in the Europa League and they’ll be looking to put in a similarly impressive performance here. 

Rennes have scored seven goals and conceded just two in their last four matches but Stéphan’s side will need to be wary of their away form going into this game. They did win their last game on the road but it was a narrow 1-0 victory over current 18th placed side Metz. Before that win they had lost each of their five away games and we feel this could hold them back as they travel to the Groupama. 

Staggering form on the road to hold Rennes back?

Lyon last played on Tuesday while Rennes have had two less days to rest as they faced Lazio on Thursday. This could be another factor holding back the away side and we feel this won’t help their case or their away form. Therefore we’re backing Lyon to get the win as they’ve scored nine goals in their last five games at the Groupama. However, they have just one clean sheet in this time and with Rennes scoring consistently in recent weeks we expect this to be a close one. Nevertheless, with Lyon’s home form and extra rest we’re backing them to win 2-1.
