Rennes vs Lyon Preview and Prediction
Lyon will travel to Rennes to kick off the recent round of Ligue 1 fixtures on Friday. Both sides are chasing European qualification for next season, and it will be an exciting clash at the Roazhon Park.
Lyon are third in the table, and they are in pole position to qualify for the Champions League. Barcelona thrashed them 5-1 to knock them out of the Champions League, and now finishing in the top three is their priority.
Rennes are in eighth place, and they are fighting for a Europa League spot. Their home form has been brilliant, and the team is unbeaten in their last 14 home games. They have won 11 of those matches. Rennes hold the advantage in the head to head record, as they have beaten Lyon in the last two matches.
Lyon’s form going into the game is good as well, and they have won 6 of their last 9 Ligue 1 games. Their attack is second-most prolific in the league, and they have seen over 3.5 goals in their last 5 matches.
Both sides are in a good vein of form, and it will be a close game. Goals will be seen, and expect over 2.5 goals in the game. Also, both sides should score in the match.

Marseille vs Angers Preview and Prediction
Marseille will host Angers at the Stade Velodrome as the Ligue 1 returns after the recent international break.
Marseille are in fourth place, six points behind Lyon in third who occupy the last Champions League place. PSG defeated Marseille 3-1 last time out, but they must put that result behind them. They have won their last four home games, which bodes well for the clash against Angers.
Angers are comfortable in mid-table, and they are 14 points clear of relegation in 12th place. Their recent form has been poor, and they have failed to win any of their last six league games. They drew 2-2 against Montpellier two weeks ago, which was their third draw in succession.
Marseille have lost two home games all season, and they will be hopeful of picking up three points on Saturday. Angers’ away form is terrible, and they have won just three away games this campaign.
The home side should win the game, with total goals in the match being above 2.5. Marseille’s home record and current form will prove to be too much for Angers to overcome.
