Lille Preview – Can the outgoing champions sign off with a home win?

Lille took French football but storm last season when they beat giants Paris Saint-Germain to the Ligue 1 crown. Retaining the title was always going to be an even tougher task, and Lille were realistically out of the championship race within the first few weeks.

Instead, it has been a real season of transition for the Hauts-de-France club, who have sealed just 14 wins from 37 matches. They have drawn 12 and lost 11 of the other 23. No matter what happens on the last day, Lille will at least finish in the top half of the table.

Our betting prediction:
Draw & both teams to score

(odds taken 1607 GMT, Friday 20 May)

Lille picked up a 3-1 win at Nice last time out, but their form has been poor of late, losing four of the last six. Can they end on a high note on Saturday?

Rennes Preview – Can Genesio’s boys make it four wins from five?

Bruno Genesio has had an excellent first full season as Rennes boss. The club took sixth last term and will improve on that finish this time around. The Red and Blacks might just miss out on a UEFA Champions League spot, but they enter the final weekend riding high in fourth.

Rennes are in good form, winning three of their past four. However, they have fallen to back-to-back defeats on the road, losing to Strasbourg and Nantes. The Brittany club have claimed just two wins from their past five away games.
