After winning their opening two Ligue 1 matches, Lyon have slipped to back-to-back defeats against Reims and Evian TG. The perennial title contenders need a result to appease their disgruntled fans and back at Stade de Gerland the pressure will be on to get maximum points against Rennes. Manager Remi Garde will not be pleased with the effort shown by his players in the last two matches and will be looking for a major improvement on Sunday night.
Stade Rennais are currently one point above Lyon in the Ligue 1 standings and managed a 1-2 victory over Evian TG in their last away match. But a 0-0 draw at home to Lille last time out suggests that Les Rouges et Noirs could come under pressure on Sunday and gaining another three points on the road looks unlikely. With Lyon desperate for points, Rennes manager Philippe Montanier will need Jean Makoun to provide a protective screen in front of his defence and it will be interesting to see if the away side can keep Les Gones at bay.

Rennes will be hoping that Lyon's dip in form continues, but will be wary as they lost 0-2 on their last visit to Stade de Gerland in Ligue 1 last season.
