It has been an absolute rocketship of a start this term for Lens, who stuck four past Monaco last time out to suggest they are no flash in the pan.

Their visitors will present a different type of test though, even with home advantage, and they will need to show their smarts to outfox them.

Predicted Lens starting XI: Samba; Gradit, Danso, Medina; Frankowski, Samed, S. Fofana, Machado; Sotoca, Costa; Openda.

PositionRennes roster
Goalkeepers Salin, Gomis, Mandanda, Alemdar, Damergy
Defenders Truffert, Badé, Theate, Assignon, Omari, Meling, Traoré, Rodon
Midfielders Santamaria, Bourigeaud, Tait, Majer, Ugochukwu, Gboho
Forwards Terrier, Guirassy, Sulemana, Doku, Tchaouna, Abline, Laborde

A slower start to the new term than intended for Rennes looks to have finally yielded some forward momentum after victory over Ajaccio.

But they are making the trip to a team absolutely brimming with confidence, and they'll need to keep their wits about them.

Predicted Rennes starting XI: Mandanda; Traore, Rodon, Theate, Truffert; Santamaria, Tait; Bourigeaud, Majer, Terrier; Laborde.
