    On Friday night, Rennes host Lyon at Roazhon Park, as the visitor's look to consolidate their position in the Champions League spots in Ligue One.

    Stade Rennes are eighth place in the French top-flight and still have hopes of finishing in the European spots, as they are currently just six points adrift of the top four teams in Ligue One.

    A recent inconsistent run of form in Ligue One has not helped the home sides chances of European qualification, though. They have been hard to beat of late in the French top-flight, as they have suffered just one defeat in their last six league outings. Their recent league matches have been relatively low scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in three of their last four matches in Ligue One.

    Rennes have been in impressive home form of late in Ligue One, as they are unbeaten in five outings at Roazhon Park, having recorded five wins in the process. Their impressive home form is built on solid defensive displays, as Rennes have conceded just twice in their last seven league matches on home soil.

    Lyon currently occupy third place in Ligue One, the last Champions League spot in the French top-flight. OL are six points clear of Marseille in fourth and could move within a point of second place Lille with a victory.

    The visitors recent Ligue One matches have been high scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in four of their last five outings.

    OL have struggled for away wins of late, as the visitors have lost two of their last three league matches on their travels, failing to win in three away games. Lyon’s recent away matches in Ligue One have been relatively low scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in three of their last four matches on their travels.

    Forebet predicts that this clash will be a tight one, finishing in a goalless draw, which would hamper Rennes chances of making the European spots.
