Tip Reasoning

  • Only two sides’ away league games averaged higher than Rennes’ 3.1 total goals per-match.
  • Five of Lille’s last seven matches saw both teams score.
  • Seven of the last nine H2H encounters saw both teams score.

Lille’s bark is worse than their bite

Having put up one of the worst ever Ligue 1 title defences, Lille are simply fighting for a possible ninth-placed finish on the final day. Even if they achieve that, it would be their lowest league finish in four years.

Lille have at least been scoring goals of late, with five goals across their last four games contributing to a run of mixed results (W2, L2). A 3-1 win last time out against European hopefuls Nice was good for Rennes, but that also shown that Lille will not lay down, even with nothing but pride to play for.

Rennes’ season lives and dies by this game

While Rennes begin the day in fourth place – a Europa League spot – they could end the evening as high as second or as low as sixth, so they will surely go all out for victory as they could end in any of the European competitions or none at all depending on the results here and elsewhere.

Away games have proven entertaining for the neutral of late, four of Rennes’ last five league trips produced over 2.5 total goals while all of them saw goals at both ends. In fact, 61% of Rennes’ away league games this season saw both teams score, amongst the highest rates in the division.

We predict that given the must win nature of this game for Rennes that we will see plenty of goalmouth action with a BTTS & O2.5 goals selection. As for the correct score, we are taking a risk on a 2-1 Rennes win, one that would end Lille’s current streak of six final day games without defeat.
