Note that the odds are correct on Betfred at the time of writing our reviews. Please visit the bookmaker for updated prices.

Lens to win or draw

Our first pick is a win for Lens or draw. The visitors were undefeated against Rennes last season and look set to defend that record in the new season. Rennes played five pre-season matches and conceded an average of 2 goals, a defensive display that could cost them this game. On the other hand, Lens played six pre-season matches and conceded an average of 1.17 goals. The visitors look better defensively and we are tipping them to get at least a point if they cannot win this game.

Few goals at full-time

Our second tip is fewer than three goals at full-time. The last four encounters between these teams ended with fewer than three goals. Rennes finished sixth last season while Lens was seventh. With that, we expect a tough duel between these teams with full goals at full-time.

Lens to score first

Lens has what it takes to score first in this game. Last season, the visitors scored two goals and conceded none to the hosts. And based on pre-season fixtures for both sides, Rennes will be wary of defensive woes coming to this fixture.

Match Preview: Can Lens Keep their Unbeaten Record against Rennes?

Lens was the better side last season when they beat Rennes away 2-nil and claimed a point in a barren draw at home. In this fixture, the big question is whether Lens will remain the kings against Rennes in the new season or not.

Rennes

Rennes head coach, Bruno Genesio, took over the hosts in March 2021, only two months to the end of last season. The French tactician did a commendable job and averaged 1.87 points in 11 games of 6W, 2D and 3L. With that, Rennes kept their charge for the top six and will participate in the newly created Europa Conference League this season. Genesio’s record makes him a tough opponent in this fixture and so we expect Rennes to put in a shift in their first games of the season before Conference League fixtures starts beckoning. The biggest worry for Genesio is defensive flops that have been evident in pre-season matches.

Lens

Lens has retained the services of head coach, Franck Haise, who steered them to 7th place last season. The visitors only need three points to take part in the Europa Conference League this season. However, there is some home for Lens coming to this fixture. They have been defensively exceptional in pre-season friendlies, an improvement that could help them snatch some points from Rennes on Sunday.
