Match Preview

Les Rennais welcome FC Lorient to Roazhon Park on Sunday for this Ligue 1 match. Recently, matches between these two have been dominated by Rennes. They are unbeaten in the last five, which includes four wins and a draw, and have already beaten Lorient twice this season in league and cup action.

Stade Rennais FC come into the match on a run of two defeats in a row. They have picked up 10 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

The Rennais’ five game-winning run came to end with defeat in their last league match away to RC Strasbourg Alsace. Expected goals of 2.6 to 0.9 in favour of Strasbourg indicates perhaps it was a fair result. When Martin Terrier equalised after halftime it looked like it would be the start of the comeback. However, it was almost one-way traffic from Strasbourg afterwards who were very good value for their win. The final score of the match was 2-1.

Terrier is Stade Rennais FC’s top scorer with twenty goals in Ligue 1 this season and is the 1.85/1 favourite to score against FC Lorient on Sunday.

Their opponent on Sunday, FC Lorient, come into the match on a run of two away defeats in a row. They have picked up 10 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

The Merlucciidaes won their last league match at home to FC Metz. Expected goals of 1.7 to 1.3 in favour of Metz indicates Lorient didn't deserve all three points on the balance of chances created. Dango Ouattara was the hero for Lorient, stepping off the bench to score the game’s only goal in dramatic fashion deep into injury time. Ouattara really picked the perfect moment to score his first league goal of this season for Lorient and is 9.5/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 1-0.

Stade Rennais FC team news

Jérémy Gélin (cruciate ligament), Loïc Badé (groin injury), Kamaldeen Sulemana (back injury), and Alfred Gomis (fractured finger) will be unavailable for Les Rennais due to injury on Sunday.

They may look to make a few unforced changes to the side who lost against RC Strasbourg Alsace in their last league match.

FC Lorient team news

Dango Ouattara was the super sub in midweek, coming off the bench to score a late winner against Metz. He will hope it earns him a rare start, with only six of his 21 appearances this season coming in the starting lineup.

FC Lorient are unlikely to make many changes to the side that beat FC Metz in their last league outing though.
