Last season, two Ligue 1 teams made a run to the UEFA Champions League semifinals.
This campaign, though, it won’t be Lyon joining PSG in the knockout stages: if it happens, it will either be Marseille or Rennes.
Rennes is a big underdog to advance out of Group E, and an even bigger one to win the group, but make no mistake about it: this team is very good.
Look for Rennes to jump on Krasnodar, led by the play of Eduardo Camavinga.
