Lyon vs Rennes team news

Lyon

After three wins in a row in Ligue 1, Lyon have suffered a loss to Le Havre in the last round, ending this good run. Still, their recent form which also includes a couple of wins in Coupe de France clearly indicates that better days are ahead for the former champions and that their fans can be optimistic about Lyon's chances of avoid relegation.

In the upcoming duel with Rennes, Lyon will be without Duje Caleta-Car as he serves his suspension, along with Mama Balde and Ernest Nuamah who are still away at AFCON 2023. Meanwhile, Johann Lepenant will miss the game through injury.

Predicted LineupLopes – Mata, Adryelson, Lovren, Tagliafico – Caqueret, Tolisso – Maitland-Niles, Cherki, Fofana – Lacazette

Just like Lyon, Rennes also enter this game after a triumph in Coupe de France, although they did only manage to win after penalties. That being said, they also had a very tough opponent in Marseille. When it comes to the team's league form, Rennes are without a loss in three games in a row and they've won their last two.

When it comes to team news, Nemanja Matic will miss this match with an injury, but the Serbian midfielder is also reportedly close to leaving the club. Rennes will also be without Christopher Wooh, who's with still battling with Cameroon at AFCON 2023.

Player to watch: Alexandre Lacazette

With eight goals in the league this season, Lacazette is one of the key reasons why Lyon are not at the bottom of the standings anymore. So, even if he's too far behind Mbappe in the race to become Ligue 1 top scorer, Lacazette's form and experience make him a constant threat and Rennes will have to keep a close eye on him in this match.
