RC Lens Vs Rennes Betting Tips
This contest between a Lens team that plays deceptively at home and a Rennes team that has recently shown itself reliable on the road is very tough to predict. We are picking Rennes to win and stop Lens’ wretched streak at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis because neither team received the outcome they wanted in midweek and cannot afford to let up as the race for a top-five finish heats up.
Through three games, RC Lens is in second place and will face Rennes to maintain their perfect start. The Ligue 1 schedule and standings indicate that Lens has a winning streak of contests following this one. So, a victory over a capable Rennes club might keep them on the winning track. But given that it’s a pick’em game anticipate it to be very competitive.
Lens, the home team, is favored (+145), while Rennes, which finished fourth last season, is favored (+180). With four straight victories, Lens has enjoyed this matchup in previous years. They have only let Renne score once during that period. With Martin Terrier, Arnaud Kalimuendo, and Gaetan Laborde, Rennes does have a potent offensive.
Although Rennes recently defeated Ajaccio 2-1 for their first victory of the year, they failed to record a clean sheet. Although Lens has merely +120 odds to score two or more goals, they beat Monaco 4-1 last weekend and scored four goals in the process.

Before Marseille’s visit to the Stade Bollaert-Dellis, the team was plagued by unfathomable circumstances off the field, so Lens could have been excused for feeling optimistic about their chances of winning again against the struggling Olympiens in a matter of weeks.
Although Florian Thauvin and Arkadiusz Milik gave Marseille a 2-0 lead just before halftime, Franck Haise’s team had a forgettable first 45 minutes. However, Lens’ resilient nature was on display in the second half as Florian Sotoca and Facundo Medina ensured the hosts received a share of the points.
A recently promoted team drawing with one of the heavyweights of the French game is surely caused for celebration. Because none of the teams in their immediate vicinity managed to win all three-midweek games, Lens’ dream of playing in Europe may yet come true.
The seventh-placed Sang et Or are some distance behind the title-hunting quartet, but they are only two points behind Rennes, whom they could pass with a rare victory at home. They will be hoping Saint-Etienne can defeat Metz in an unlikely victory the following day.
Even though Lens has the fourth-best away record in the competition, their home performance is appalling. They have won just one of their nine league games at the Stade Bollaert-Dellis, which may be a terrible sign before they play Rennes, a team that excels away from home.
RC Lens vs Rennes Team News
- RC Lens
Before Marseille’s visit, Lens lost five-goal striker Ignatius Ganago to a muscle issue; his participation in this game is also doubtful. The home team’s other players are all healthy, and 19-year-old Arnaud Kalimuendo, who is on loan from Paris Saint-Germain, will be hoping to get more playing time without Ganado.
After fully recovering from an ankle sprain, Loic Bade will try to replace Clement Michelin in the defense after he was substituted against Marseille at halftime. Leca, Medina, Fortes, Bade; Clauss, Fofana, Doucoure, Haidara; Kakuta; Sotoca, Kalimuendo; and Lens might all make the starting lineup.
Right-back for Rennes For this weekend’s game against Lorient, Brandon Soppy is anticipated to fill in for Hamari Traore, who was forced to leave after 24 minutes due to a calf injury. Although Alfred Gomis has successfully reclaimed the number one jersey from Romain Salin, he will undoubtedly feel that he could have done more to prevent Boisgard’s equalizer from going in on Wednesday.
After a protracted absence, Serhou Guirassy is back in play, but Martin Terrier’s position at the top should be secure for the time being. Possible starting lineup for Rennes: Maouassa, Doku, Camavinga, Nzonzi, Bourigeaud, Grenier, Gomis, Soppy, Aguerd, Da Silva.
