  • Rennes won five Ligue 1 games in a row prior to losing 2-0 at home to Marseille in Week 27.
  • Victor-Hugo Montano has seven league goals while Yacine Brahimi and Abdoulrazak Boukari, who has played just eight Ligue 1 games for Rennes, have struck four times each.

  • Rennes have not lost two consecutive Ligue 1 matches this season.
  • Defender Romain Danze has played every minute of all 27 Ligue 1 matches.


November 6, 2010: Stade Rennais 1-1 Olympique Lyonnais

Jires Ekoko opened the scoring early on for the home side, latching onto a pass from Victor Hugo Montano to strike the opening goal, but their wings would be clipped unjustly after the break as Michel Bastos drew OL level.

Editor's Prediction

Injury problems are currently plaguing Rennes' offence, and though they've proven sturdy at the back this season, Lyon are a side going well in attack domestically and should overpower Frederic Antonetti's ailing side.
