TV: ESPN; Bein Sports
France on Friday night will see Rennes host Lorient in Ligue 1 action. Rennes are unbeaten in five games including a win over Marseille in the Coupe de la Ligue. Its a great run for a team that had lost four of the previous five. Rennes are a strong team at home having won five of eight in all competitions and only losing one of those eight. The return of Ntep from suspension will be welcomed, Ntep is the top scorer for Rennes in the Ligue with four goals. With Toivonen still out with a hamstring injury and Habibou struggling to find the net alot of th pressure for goals will rest with Ntep.
On the other side Lorient have six players out through injury and have lost eight of the last eleven games in all competitions. I watched the game with PSG though ad Loriet played well, they raised their game on the occasion and Ayew and Lavigne gane PSG plenty to think about. This is a tough game for Lorient traveling to Rennes especially given Rennes strong home record and Loreints overall struggles away from home(losing three of the last four)

A home win here looks the value bet, at 19/20 I would take Rennes to get the job done in Friday night football although to be honest the unders looks a decent bet as well. Still with Lorient struggling with injuries and Rennes getting Ntep back from a suspension I will take Rennes to get the win.
