Lyon will be looking to close the gap at the top of the Ligue 1 table when they host Rennes at the Groupama Stadium on Wednesday evening. Lyon fought back from two goals down to secure a 2-2 away draw at Lille thanks to goals from Bertrand Traore and Moussa Dembele. On the contrary, Rennes have suffered a humiliating 1-4 home loss against Strasbourg, despite the fact that Ismaila Sarr gave them the lead after just nine minutes.

Betting Tips for the game
Lyon head into this clash on the back of a nine-game unbeaten run across all competitions, winning four in the process. Les Gones currently sit third in the Ligue 1 table, just one point behind the second-placed Montpellier. At home, Lyon have suffered just one defeat in their eleven home games across all competitions so far this season.
Rennes, on the flip side, have endured a mixed run of form over the past two months, registering three wins, four defeats and three draws in their last ten competitive fixtures. Away from home, Rennes looked a bit better over the past two months, having lost just once in their last six competitive trips. Due to their inconsistency, Rennes sit only 14th in the league table, four points clear of the drop zone.
Lyon should be able to continue their recent run of form and we back them to get back to winning ways in the league here. Our betting tips and predictions expect Lyon to win at odds 1.57.
