Match preview

The Kids welcome Stade Rennais FC to the Parc Olympique Lyonnais on Sunday for this Ligue 1 match. Rennes hammered Lyon 4-1 at the Roazhon Park in the reverse fixture back in November. Lyon will be out for revenge here but have struggled in this head to head lately, as shown in their one win from the last five matches between them.

Olympique Lyonnais come into the match having picked up 10 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six matches.

Les Gones won their last league match away to FC Lorient. Expected goals of 2.6 to 1.3 in favour of Lyon indicates it was likely a fair result despite the scoreline flattering them somewhat.

Lyon's Romain Faivre was in good form as he scored a brace of goals against Lorient. These were Faivre's first two goals since moving to Lyon in January adding to his seven at Brest. He is 4.75/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 1-4.

Their opponent on Sunday, Stade Rennais FC, come into the match on a run of three wins in a row. They have picked up 12 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

Les Rennais also won their last league match at home to SCO Angers. Expected goals of 2.4 to 0.3 in favour of Rennes indicates it was likely a fair result. Their attacking performance impressed here, creating four big chances in open play and a further one from a corner. Gaetan Laborde was the star man, creating the opening goal for Benjamin Bourigeaud before adding a late second of his own. The final score of the match was 2-0.

Laborde now has 11 goals for Stade Rennais in Ligue 1 this season and is 3.1/1 to score against Olympique Lyonnais on Sunday.
