Lens vs Rennes: top free betting tips

Lens will be looking forward to resuming their winning form in Ligue 1 in the next fixture against Rennes on Sunday, 20 August. The Rennais have got the back of a victory over Metz while the Blood and Gold have suffered a defeat against Brest in the first round of the league.

Match result prediction: Lens to win

Lens has gone undefeated in the previous four matches in Friendlies and French Ligue 1. However, the Blood and Gold have been at their best at Stade Bollaert-Delelis and won the previous six home fixtures in the league consecutively. On the other hand, Rennes have lost three of the last five road fixtures in Ligue 1. Additionally, Lens has dominated Rennes by winning the last three consecutive H2H meetings. Therefore, we set Blood and Gold as our favourites to take three points in this game.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Two of the previous four H2H meetings between these two teams have finished with BTTS outcomes. Lens has been on the scoring side in each of the last five matches in Ligue 1. However, Blood and Cold’s defence has restricted the opposition from scoring in only one game during that course. On the other hand, Rennes has also scored in four of the last five league fixtures on the road, claiming only one clean sheet. Given these statistics, we can imagine the two teams sharing a BTTS result in this encounter.

Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Lens

The lens has won two of the previous five H2Hs against Rennes at Stade Bollaert-Delelis with a scoreline of 2-1. The Blood and Gold have also rattled the net twice or more in each of the previous five league outings. Defensively, Lens has conceded only one goal in three matches during the aforestated period. On the other hand, Rennes have managed to score more than once in only one of the previous five road fixtures in Ligue 1. Considering these facts, we predict a 2-1 margin for Lens at the end of the ninety minutes in Round 2 of Ligue 1.

Lens vs Rennes: form, recent games, and news

Lens preview

Lens had a perfect start to the last game against Brest with a two-goal lead within 22 minutes through Florian Sotoca and Machado. However, Romain Del Castillo’s two penalties and Kanny Lala’s goal for Brest cost all three points to Lens. The team’s preparation is also hindered for the second round by two injury-related absences and the suspension of Neil El Aynaoui.

Rennes preview

Rennes entertained newly promoted Metz in Round 1 of Ligue 1 and thrashed them with a 5-1 victory. Kalimuendo, Amine Gouiri and Jeremy Daku scored once for Rennes while Ibrahim Salah notched a late brace. The team’s readiness is slightly marred by the absence of Martin Terrier due to a cruciate ligament rupture.
