Close to the precipice at the end of the 2017/2018 financial year, Lille is now well underway in its ambitious project embodied by President Lopez and sports director Campos. 3rd in 2019, the Mastiffs finished in 4th place last year. With 1 small point behind on the podium, they can feed regrets because the team is not qualified for the next Champions League when it seemed to be capable of it. During the preparation, the LOSC alternated the good and the less good with 2 victories (Mouscron and Anderlecht) and 3 defeats (Club Bruges, AZ Alkmaar, and Brest).
Rennes had the best season in its history last year, finishing third in Ligue 1, synonymous with direct qualification for the group stage of the Champions League. The Bretons had to work hard to finish with 1 small point ahead of their opponent of the day, 4th in the standings. Convincing during the preparation, Camavinga’s partners started with 4 victories (Châteauroux, Angers, Brest, and Saint-Etienne) and 1 draw (Lorient) before losing their only meeting against Nice last weekend (2-3).

The workforce for Lille vs Rennes

Lille could not resist the offensive of Naples which offered a very good sum to enlist Victor Osimhen. Also, the experienced Loïc Rémy left free. To remedy these departures, the leaders have targeted similar profiles with the highly anticipated Jonathan David (ex La Gantoise) and the Turkish veteran Burak Yilmaz (ex Besiktas). In addition to that, young people with high potential Lihadji (formerly OM), Botman (formerly Ajax), and Pizzuto (formerly Pachuca, Mexico) got involved at a lower cost. Otherwise, the team keeps the same framework behind and in the middle with the tauliers Maignan, Jose Fonte, Benjamin André, Renato Sanches, Ikoné, and Bamba.
Rennes has been banking on continuity for the time being but could go on the offensive now that their place in the Champions League group stage is secured. As for the departures, only the experienced Jérémy Morel left. To replace him, the Bretons bet on the former Dijon player Aguerd while in the offensive field, it is the former Lyon player Martin Terrier who was recruited. Despite the greed, the very promising Camavinga decided to stay just like Mbaye Niang who hinted that he could consider a departure.

The probable lines for Lille vs Rennes:

Lille: Maignan – Celik, Jose Fonte, Botman, Bradaric – Ikoné, Renato Sanches, André, Bamba – David, Burak Yilmaz.
Rennes: Mendy – Traoré, Da Silva, Aguerd, Maouassa – Bourigeaud, N’Zonzi, Camavinga – Raphinha, Niang, Terrier.
