Looking at these Rennes vs Lorient odds, it's clear that Rennes are the absolute favourites, which is understandable given their recent run and the fact that they're currently 13 points ahead of Lorient in the standings.

However, Lorient were on their own little run lately, with three wins in a row before their loss to Nantes in the last round, so they are also in solid form at the moment.

Lorient preview: Still fighting to escape the relegation zone

After three wins in a row, which saw Lorient nearly climb out of the relegation zone and significantly improve their chances of survival, Lorient slipped at home against Nantes. So, their fans will certainly hope that the good form is still here and that this was just one bad result.

Benjamin Mendy, Montassar Talbi, Igor Silva, Bonke Innocent, and Quentin Boisgard are all on Lorient's injury list right now.

Predicted LineupMvogo – Adjei, Laporte, Toure – Katseris, Abergel, Bakayoko, Le Bris – Kari, Bamba, Ponceau
