Lille Preview – Can Lille go a step better this term?

Lille were edged out by 3rd placed Rennes for the Champions League qualifier spot at the end of last season’s French Ligue 1 season but the hosts may well feel aggrieved at the early termination of the campaign as they were just a single point behind their opponents in this Saturday’s opening clash with Rennes.

The hosts can feel hard done by particularly as they’d won six of their final seven matches in the French top flight and appeared to be heading for at least a top three finish having secured wins against Strasbourg, Rennes, Angers, Toulouse, Nantes and most impressive of all, a 1-0 home win over Lyon.

Lille had also been impressive at home throughout the last campaign as the hosts finished up with a home record of 11-2-2 24/9 with their only defeats being against the top two teams, PSG and Marseille, but they’d also strung together nine clean sheets at the back too.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Rennes Preview – Can Rennes repeat last season’s heroics?

Rennes finished last season’s Ligue 1 campaign in 3rd place but perhaps could count themselves fortunate as the French top flight season was cut short due to the lockdown, although they did head into the lockdown on the back of three straight wins.

Victories over Nimes, Toulouse and Montpellier saw Rennes bounce back from a three-match sequence without a win in Ligue 1 which included defeats against Saturday’s upcoming opponents, Lille, along with a loss to Reims, both of which were away from home.

Indeed, it was Rennes’ form away from home which was sporadic as their away record of 6-3-5 13/10 indicates, where they posted just four wins from their last 12 matches on their travels, while also losing their last two visits to the Stade Pierre-Mauroy on the trot.
