Lille and Rennes will meet in this round at Stade Pierre Mauroy on Tuesday. These are two very uniform and unpredictable teams. Current rankings do not give either team the status of a clear favorite. Still, it is clear that fans of both teams will want their club to emerge from this fight as the winner.
Lille team news:
Lille is once again at the top of French football, with the “northerners” currently being fourth but lagging behind by a solid six points. Lille had a series of three consecutive defeats in League 1, which he broke in the previous round, this weekend, when he celebrated in Strasbourg with 2: 1.
In the last 10 games this team has won 5 times, scoring 9 times a total of 0.9 goals per game. In the last 6 months, Lille has played a total of 20 matches, scored 23 goals and conceded 23 goals in their own network.
Probable lineup: Maignan; Celik, Jose Fonte, Gabriel, Reinildo; Andre, Soumare; Renato Sanches, Ikone, Luiz Araujo; Osimhen.
Rennes team news:
The guests are back on track and will play against the current vice-champion after a five-games without a defeat, counting all competitions. When it comes to League 1, Rennes celebrated against Nimes and Nantes, and won one point against Nice in the away game.
The match against Nantes will be retold for a long time. They were leading in with 2: 1 to the 95th minute, and then the persistent hosts scored in the 95th and 98th minutes to win.
Now Rennes is in a great third place, with only three points less than the second ranked Marseille. It is not impossible to secure a Champions League standings, at least in qualifying.
Probable lineup: Mendy; Traore, Da Silva, Gnagnon, Maouassa; Raphinha, Camavinga, Lea Siliki, Tait; Hunou, Niang.
We don’t expect many goals in this match. Both teams want to win, but they also know who they are playing against. So, we don’t believe they will score more than two goals all together.
