Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Lorient and Rennes face each other at Stade du Moustoir in what is expected to be a very exciting game. Lorient suffered an expected 2-0 loss to PSG on Wednesday evening, with the team extending their losing run in the Ligue 1 to six games. Les Merlus failed to find the net in the previous eight league fixtures, and it is no wonder bookies see them as underdogs in Sunday’s clash against Rennes.
Les Rouges et Noirs, on the other hand, came from behind to beat Olympique Marseille 2-1 in midweek, with the team moving a little closer to the Europa League berth. Rennes are more of a team than Lorient, and seeing that they will be fully focused on the national championship following their elimination in the Champions League, away win should be considered. In their last meeting in the Ligue 1 Rennes defeated Lorient 1-0.
