Lyon vs Rennes: Ligue 1 2023/24 Live Stream, Form Guide, Head to Head, Schedule, Fixture and Probable Lineups

On Friday night, a highly anticipated encounter is set to take place at the Groupama Stadium as Ligue 1 adversaries Lyon and Rennes, both striving to meet expectations, face off in a quest for three crucial points. Having narrowly advanced to the Coupe de France last-16 in their recent outings, both teams are determined to build on their success and make progress in the league standings.

Last week, Lyon narrowly overcame Bergerac Perigord in a cup match against Championnat National 2 opponents, securing a 2-1 victory with goals from Malick Fofana and Maxence Caqueret. Despite a recent revival, Lyon finds themselves in a relegation playoff spot. They face crucial league games against Rennes and Marseille before an intriguing cup clash with Lille. Lyon, currently on their third head coach this season, aims to replicate their previous away win against Rennes in November to bolster their survival chances. The team’s form has been inconsistent, highlighted by a recent setback against Le Havre.

Rennes, having won five of their last eight league games in Lyon, enter Friday’s match with confidence, looking to extend their recent positive form. They secured a spot in the Coupe de France last 16 by overcoming Marseille in a dramatic penalty shootout, marking their fifth consecutive unbeaten match. Julien Stephan’s team, traditionally competing for a top-four finish, is now showing signs of improvement after a slow start to the season. With victories in their last two league games, including a 3-1 win at Clermont and a 2-0 triumph against Nice, Rennes aims to climb to ninth in the table with another win on Friday.
