Stade Rennais will be boosted by the news that Benjamin Andre is fit to return to the first team ahead for Les Rouges et Noirs‘ Ligue 1 fixture with LOSC Lille.
Philippe Montanier will lead his side to Lille this afternoon hoping to build on last weekend’s tight victory against Metz.
A Paul-Georges Ntep goal settled that contest and ensured that Rennes go three matches without defeat.
However, Lille-who themselves beat En Avant de Guingamp last weekend-represent much sterner competition, particularly with the two sides level on 38 points in Ligue 1.
Montanier and his team will be boosted by the news that Andre-who missed last week’s match with a foot injury-will be returning for the fixture. Andre returned to training at the beginning of the week, according to France Football, and could return to action against Lille.
