Fifth-placed Rennes host third-ranked Lens for Ligue 1 gameweek 29 in an exciting clash at the top of the standings on Saturday night. The Franck Haise-led side would go level with Marseille if they were to beat Rennes tonight, further strengthening their credentials to play Champions League football next season. Les Sang et Or won’t have it easy against the Bretons as the latter are one of the best side when playing at home.
Rennes’ manager Bruno Genesio suffered an injury, blow with France international left-back Adrien Truffert out for the rest of the season. The former Lyon manager is expected to mirror Haise’s 3-4-3 formation, with a frontline led by Arnaud Kalimuendo. The Bretons have yet to beat Lens since the Artois side came back up to the top flight 3 seasons ago.
Steve Mandanda – Warmed Omari, Christopher Wooh, Arthur Theate – Hamari Traoré, Benjamin Bourigeaud, Lesley Ugochukwu, Birger Meling – Désiré Doué, Arnaud Kalimuendo, Karl Toko Ekambi
