Lyon - Rennes Prediction, Picks and Tips
Inter-national match of Ligue 1 and we look at the game that will be played in the Parc OL between the Olympique de Lyon and the Stade Rennais. Attractive match that we will see between two good offensive teams and this time we will not get into goals, which could also be tested, if not in the corners. We need to get at least 10 corners in the game. Lyon is in the 3rd place with 28 points in that "2nd league" that is played in France to see the rest of the positions because the champion is already clear. With the fall of the Monaco seemed easy to occupy positions of Champions but its irregularity with the appearance of teams that are showing quite solvent, as Lille and Montpellier, it has to fight hard to get it. The Rennes at the moment in the 14th position with 17 points, disappointing enough as now I will comment.
Well 10 corners we need in this game and whose main asset for it are the locals. Lyon is a very irregular team in terms of results but if we see the corners we usually leave a considerably high data due to the cheerful game that plays, taking advantage of the speed of Depay, Fekir, Traore, Cornet or Terrier. Now the appearance of the lanes also helps, since Genesio is using the system with 3 power stations, where Mendy and Tete / Rafael take advantage of to go up a lot. So far has an average of 5'5 corners in favor and 5'1 against, 10'5 in total per game. As a local this average goes up to 12'9 corners per game, 7'9 in favor and 5'9 against. This aspect is very important because of the local feel much more comfortable to go to the attack and give us more round trip with spaces for both sets. Of the 8 matches he has been at home, he has crossed the line in 7 of them.
As a visitor we have one of the teams that is the most, at least to me, defrauding so far. So much so that after the defeat against Strasbourg by 1-4 Sabri Lamouchi has been dismissed from Rennes. A coach who took the team almost in decline last season and took it to Europe but this year does not hit the key with one of the best squad in France. For this match Julien Stephan, coach of the reserve, will lead the team temporarily but you know that when you change coaches almost no player has secured the position so I hope everyone will try the same or even more. In data we do not have an average as favorable as in the local set since it only averages 9'4 corners per game, 5'9 in favor and 3'5 against. The bad thing as a visitor lowers this average at 8'1 per game, 4'3 and 3'9. Despite this, it has one of the best attacks in Ligue 1 and I think that against a defense so irregular and that provokes as much distrust as Lyon can do a lot of damage in this game. Players who stand out for their speed as Ismaila Sarr, Bourigeaud, Niang, Ben Arfa or del Castillo count in their attack, so they can not go looking for anything other than the 3 points so necessary.
