Lille won’t be qualifying for European play, but it can play spoiler, just as it did in its last game when it took down Nice.

Jonathan David scored twice in the 3-1 win over Nice, with Timothy Weah adding another goal in stoppage time. That win knocked Nice out of the top five of Ligue 1. Can the Mastiffs make it two matches in a row of upsetting a top team and threatening their shot at UEFA play?

David’s 15 goals lead the team this season.

Predicted Lille starting XI: Gudmundsson, Djaló, Fonte, Celik, Weah, Gomes, Onana, Zhegrova, Yilmaz, David; Leonardo

Goalkeepers Salin, Gomis, Bonet, Alemdar, Damergy

Forwards Terrier, Guirassy, Doku, Tchaouna, Laborde, Tel

Rennes finds itself in a tough spot heading into the final matchday. The team is coming off of a 2-0 win over Marseille in its last game, with Benjamin Bourigeaud and Lovro Majer each scoring. That was a must-win for Rennes.

What that victory set up is this: Rennes is now fourth in Ligue 1 standings, which would qualify it for the Europa League. But with Strasbourg and Nice both in a position to surpass it if they both win and Rennes loses, Rennes has to get a point in this match to guarantee a spot in European play.

The team could also move into the Champions League with a win plus a Marseille loss.

Predicted Rennes starting XI: Traore, Omari, Aguerd, Truffert, Majer, Santamaria, Tait, Bourigeaud, Laborde, Terrier; Gomis
