Rennes faces Olympique Lyonnais in the first round of the 30th French Ligue 1 round. The duel will be played on Friday, March 29, starting at 9:45 pm at Stadium Roazhon Park in Rennes.
The Rennes team is on the eighth place in the standings with a total of 41 points. The hosts hope for a second consecutive season to qualify for Europa League. During this campaign the team made a strong performance and reached the 1/8-finals where it was eliminated by Arsenal. The Rennes team only lags six points from the fourth position, so why not aim at a place in the Champions League. However, the hosts should play strong in the upcoming match if they have ambitions to top the season.
Julien Stephan’s alumni have won 39% of their matches this season with 39 goals and 36 hits. As for their home games in the league, they have won half of them – seven wins in 14 games. Rennes is the seventh best host in Ligue 1 with 25 winning points for 14 games. In his last game at Roazhon Park, Julien Stephan’s team scored 3:1 against Caen, before defeating Arsenal with the same result in the Europa League, but failed to win the lead in London and dropped out of the tournament.
The Olympique Lyonnais team also left European club tournaments before the international break. Bruno Genesio’s graduates lost 1:5 from Barcelona in their last visit and said goodbye to the Champions League. Olympique Lyonnais hopes to play in the strongest European club tournament next season. The players rank third in the Ligue 1 standings with a 53-point mark, with seven points ahead of the fifth Saint-Etienne. Olympique Lyonnais lost his home team to Rennes with 0-2 in the first half and will now strive to take revenge for this defeat. The Kids won their last visit to Roazhon Park with a score of 2:1 and I think they are able to get back to success again.
