Rennes vs Lille - Ligue 1 Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction

Ligue 1 continues this weekend on Sunday, the 24th of January 2021 as Lille OSC vs. Stade Rennais FC kicks-off at 17:00 (GMT+1) on Matchday 21 at the Stade de la Route de Lorient.

Stade Rennais FC were on the end of a 2-1 victory over Brest on Matchday 20, the 17th of January. Rennes haven't lost a single game ever since they were last beaten on the 8th of December, 2020. They have won four of their last six games across all competitions: WWWDDW as they sit in 5th place with 36 points after 10W, 6D & 4L. Rennes have scored 30 goals and conceded 22, hence have a GD of +8. Coach Julien Stephan is expected to play a 4—1—4—1 formation with Terrier leading the attack. Stephan who has a 44.66%-win record with Rennes since his appointment on the 3rd of December, 2018 will be looking to steal a few points off Lille. Mbaye Niang wasn’t present on the substitute bench in the game against Brest and remains doubtful for this game. Left winger, Flavien Tait has an ankle injury and will be missing this tie.

Lille OSC are in 2nd place after defeating Reims, 2-1 on Matchday 20. Goals from the two Jonathan's – Bamba (48') and David (90') saw Lille outscore Reims whose only goal came from Arber Zeneli (6') minutes short of halftime. Lille have 42 points after 12W, 6D & 2L. That was their fourth victory in their last six games: WDWLWW. They have a GD of +20 after scoring 35 times and conceding 15 goals. Coach Christophe Galtier will be looking to pick up nothing less than a victory when he takes on Rennes. Reports suggest Lille will line-up in a conventional 4—4—2 formation with David and Yazici leading the attack as a duo. Lille have no injury worries ahead of this tie.

The last time they met was in August, 2020 and it ended in a draw, 1-1. Earlier in Feb. 2020, Lille won by a lone goal. An earlier encounter between these two sides in September 2019 ended in another 1-1 draw.
