Lyon vs Rennes predictions and betting tips
Lyon’s defence is not good now. They have conceded six goals in the last six matches of the 2021-22 LIgue 1 and were absolutely destroyed in the last H2H match against Rennes. Also, Jerome Boateng, who completed most of the defensive actions for his team, is injured. Moussa Dembele’s fitness is the weak side of Les Gones’ attack. Romain Faivre is in his best form now but it will not be enough to defeat Rennes.
Bruno Genesio’s men have a well-structured attack. They have created 322 chances in penalty areas and have scored approximately two goals per match in the 2021-22 Ligue 1. Gaetan Laborde and Martin Terrier’s form will be key to the victory, whereas Lyon’s defence will be unlikely to stop these forwards. I believe that Les Rennais will win the match. A total of under 2.5 goals has played out in 10 of the last 13 matches with Lyon participating. We may see the same total this time.
