Rennes v Lille Match Preview
Lille travel to Rennes for their Coupe de France clash on Wednesday evening in great shape after outclassing Nice in a 4-0 home win last week, where Rafael, Pepe, Bamba and Remy all found the net and connected their sixth win in a row.
LOSC have been furious and we’ve seen them confirm such a streak despite conceding goals on the regular too, proving unbeatable on the road since November. Christophe Galtier will now want for them to prove their character once again in search of Cup success, as his men search for a place in final 8.
Rennes promise a great challenge, though, and they come into the match on the back of a 1-0 win over Amiens. This was their sixth win in front of the home fans since early December and just the draw against Montpellier (0-0) seen along the way will hardly dent their confidence.
Red and Blacks have had more troubles on the road and can’t boast the consistency visitors do, which will be more worrying for the crowd at Roazhon Park. However, we see this as a thriller in the making and Rennes should be able to do their bit in making it happen.
Still, we will back Lille to turn it their way and we’ll thus stick with an Away win here at 2/1 with Betway, which feels like great value seeing their great spell of form despite a strong challenge looming.
LOSC should be forced into another exciting contest on their end and with that in mind, we’ll also back Over 2.5 Goals FT at 23/20 with BetVictor. We’ve seen such clashes in four of their last five outings and this feels like further evidence for such a bet.
