Rennes hosts Lille in round 38 of French Ligue 1. The match will be played on Friday, May 24th at Roazhon Park (Rennes)
Rennes continues to shine after the French Cup final. Yes, the Red and Blacks gained only 1 victory in the last 4 games, but this applies primarily to the scoring of the club. The men of Stephan do not leave the field without goals for 6 games in a row. In 5 of these matches, the team scored 2 goals or more. Actually, Rennes failed to score only in 5 of 54 official matches this season. The statistics are amazing and are at the level of the European football grandees. The ability of the Red and Blacks to score in any model of the game distinguishes them from the rest of French clubs.

Lille rightly deserves to finish in 2nd place. However, the team earned the silver medals thanks to a bright performance in the home field, where it smashed even PSG. The Danes are less convincing away. Lille flunks more often, especially in the defense. The men of Galtier have conceded 5 goals in the last 4 away matches. Notably, such scoring home teams as Lyon and Nantes scored to the Danes’ net. However, Lille consistently answers its rivals with goals. Thus, the team failed to score only once for the last 13 away matches. Fairly recently, the Danes have visited Lyon and managed to score 2 goals in a very important game.
In this season, Rennes and Lille have met twice and scored over 2.5 goals in both games. Despite the lack of tournament motivation, both teams will try to end the season on the up note. Lille has more players that are capable of solving an episode using individual skills. First of all, we are talking about Pepe, who is in excellent shape. Rennes, perhaps, has no leader, but the Red and Blacks successfully interact in the offensive line. However, the men of Stephan fail regularly in defense. Yes, they miraculously kept a clean sheet with Strasbourg, but they allowed as many as 11 goals in the previous 5 matches. Lille scored 2 or more goals away to Lyon, Nantes, Marseille, and it will probably cope with the defense of Rennes. However, the visitors are unlikely to stand up against the Red and Blacks, who hammered 11 goals in the last 6 games.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 goals scored
