Les Dogues continue life without Pepe, who left the club in the summer, but they have been in a fine form at the start of the season. Les Rouges et Noirs aim to stay in top three in the Ligue 1 standings and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Lille. Lille recorded a win in each of their first three home games in the national championship, but given their poor away record, we predict that they are going to share the spoils with Rennes at Roazhon Park this weekend.

Theyve bagged ten points in five games and challenging the top of the table here will surely be a push they desperately need to end the unwanted streak. Julien Stephans side has shocked PSG (2-1) early in the campaign and will surely be motivated to build on such a performance, despite seeing Nice (1-2) snatch the points since.

His men struggled to score on the regular and in-form Victor Osimhen just wasnt enough to keep it going. LOSC have seen three away losses this term already and while theyve had more success in front of the home fans which sees them sitting just three points behind pace-setters PSG this will obviously be very worrying for Christophe Galtier.

They have also been rather poor defensively with an xGA of 7.10 with three goals conceded so far. Rennes have scored six goals in the league so far but they have the second worst xG in Ligue 1 so these goals may dry up if they dont start creating chances of quality. Rennes have lost just two of their last 22 home matches with wins over PSG, Lille and Arsenal in there for good measure.

This season they arguably have the better team have started well and Lille have a recent poor record over Rennes. Rennes form has dipped recently but they have a great chance to put that right with a win at the weekend. The problem for Lille of course is that they sold their best two players, and have struggled since, this is an away game and they had to play in midweek. All of this points to a home win. Rennes had to play also where they drew 1-1 with Celtic in the Europa League but the advantage, they had there was that it was also at home.

Their best performances are at the start of the new season and in the end when they fight against relegation. Some might say that it was surprising, but if we analyze more in-depth, we can see that Rennes plays serious football whenever it is necessary. The next game is of no significance for Rennes, but they still may choose to go for a win against, once the most hated club in entire Germany, LOSC.

Highlighted Player (Flavien Tait):

Lille have conceded at least two goals in four of their last five away games and with Rennes scoring at least two goals in ten of their last sixteen home matches, were backing the hosts to score over 1.5 goals here. Neither team comes into this game in incredible form but with Lille so poor on the road, were going to edge this one in the way of the hosts. Rennes have always had a good record against Lille with them winning four of the last five clashes.
