Lyon to win both halves @ 13/10 with Ladbrokes

Rennes to win @ 11/2 with Betfred

Last weekend’s top of the table clash in Ligue 1 proved to be another thrilling encounter, an endorsement for the growing quality in the French top flight. Although Lyon mightn’t feel that way about it.


They somehow failed to capitalise on Monaco being reduced to ten men midway through the first half. This was after they had initially thrown away a two-goal lead. A flat second half followed and it was Monaco who took all three points with a stunning Rony Lopes winner.


All three of the games between Lyon and Monaco this season finished 3-2. Hosting Rennes this Saturday, Lyon will hope to end a run of two consecutive defeats that has seen them slip down the table from second to fourth. Midweek joy in the Coupe de France will raise spirits. Maxwell Cornet and Nabil Fekir scoring the goals in a 2-1 win. It sends them into the quarter-finals.

Team News

Rennes have lost their last three Ligue 1 fixtures but have a decent record against Lyon in recent years. They’ve only lost twice in their last five matches against Les Gones.

Lyon will be desperate to stop the rot and we can see them making a fast start here. In recent weeks, they’ve taken early leads in their games. Expect them to establish dominance quickly.
