Rennes will host Lorient in 20th round of French Ligue 1. Rennes is currently at 7th position at the table with 27 points from 19 rounds and for sure are satisfied with their results. They are coming here after managed to reach 1/16 finals in French Cup by eliminating Nice after penalties, before that they celebrated over Guingamp 0:2 and that was their first victory in league after five rounds. They had a good start of this season but now must improve their form to at least retain their current position. Rennes showed decent offensive performances and score 25 goals in league so far, it's interesting that out of their six victories so far in league only two were at home, they also suffered four defeats and got nine draws. Rennes has only three points less than 4th placed Caen and they have a chance to reach that position which leads them into Europe for the next season. They have positive record in duels against Lorient and in last five matches Rennes celebrated two times got two draws and suffered one defeat about two years ago. Rennes has a lot of problems with injuries, defenders Dimitri Kevin Cavare, Mexer (10/0), Pedro Menes (12/0), midfielder Ludovic Baal (13/0), attacking midfielder Pedro Henrique (15/2), Kamil (Grosicki (17/7) will all miss this match due to injuries, defender Romain Danze (6/0) is suspended, while attacking midfielder Yoan Gourcouff and Paul-Georges Ntep having problems with slight injuries and fitness and their appearances are in doubt.

Lorient on the other hand is at 8th position at the table with only one point less than Rennes. They improved their form in comparison to a previous season and now are coming here after managed to overcome lower ranked Tours in 1/32 finals of the French Cup. They are in decent shape but to retain their position now must show much more than so far, they managed to score 27 goals in previous 19 rounds while didn't impressed with defensive skills and conceded 26 goals. Lorient is playing very well at home, so far suffered only two defeats in front of their fans and for sure will give their best to continue with good results. Lorient ended previous season at 15th position at the table and now are more than satisfied with results, if they continue with goo performances maybe can reach even higher positions. As for absent players, forward Benjamin Moukandjo (19/12) and defender Wesley Lautoa (9/0) will stay out of action due to injuries while defender Lamine Cone will also miss this match, his transfer to Sunderland was canceled in last minute and he will stay on the bench.

Rennes are hoping that they can continue with good results against Lorient and for sure will give their best to achieve positive outcome here, while Lorient is in decent shape and they won't be sitting and waiting, I expect interesting duel with both sides to attack and over 2 goals to be scored.
