Lens will welcome Rennes to Stade Bollaert-Delelis for a matchday 20 fixture in France Ligue 1. The last meeting on 8th August 2021 ended in a 1-1 draw. Both sides have met ten times in the most recent seasons. Lens has won 2 matches, and Rennes triumphed in 3. Recent outings average 1.80 goals, while both teams score 40% of the time.

Lens's latest fixture against Nice ended in an away 2-1 loss. I expected more from Les Artésiens. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points. Lens set the tone early and scored in the 30 minute.

Rennes's previous game in the competition versus Monaco ended in an away 2-1 loss. Rennes didn't turn up and failed to create clear cut chances for most of the game. Rennes played better before halftime and scored in the 16th minute.

Since the start of the season, Lens is more dominant at home. They have five wins out of 11 games on home soil. Les Sang's good defensive display is key to their success. They didn't concede in 36% of home games.

Rennes has picked up 6 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Rennes wins 1.09 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Rennes kept a clean sheet in just 27% of their visits.

It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Lens or Draw.

I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.89 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 50% of Lens's home and Rennes's away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.

Both sides are dangerous going forward. Lens has scored in 82% of home games. Rennes is a decent match and has scored in all away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
