Leagues Tipped:

SlipsTips takes a look at the Bet Builder market ahead of Lens' meeting with Rennes in Ligue 1 on Saturday night.

Lens vs Rennes (Saturday, 20:00)

Lens and Rennes will be looking to bounce back from Ligue 1 defeats last time out when they do battle at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis on Saturday night.

The ninth-placed hosts are winless in their last six French top flight fixtures, while Champions League chasing Rennes have slumped to defeat in each of their last two league matches.

As such, there isn't a huge amount of appeal in the 1×2 market here, but backing each team to hit 3+ corners and each team to receive 10+ booking points looks like a nice alternative at 4/5 with SkyBet.

Lens have been fairly strong corner performers thus far, with Franck Haise's side averaging 5.26 flagkicks per 90, a tally that increases ever so slightly to a 5.89 when playing at their Pas-de-Calais base.

Rennes, on the other hand, who boast one of the division's strongest attacking records, are averaging a league-high 6.32 corners per-game.

With that in mind, I'm more than happy to back the pair to hit three corners apiece here in what should be an enjoyable encounter under the lights in northern France on Saturday night.

To complete the combination I'm going with each side to receive 10+ booking points in what should also be a closely-fought battle between two teams capable of pushing towards the European spots this term.

Racing Club have been one of the more ill-disciplined sides in Ligue 1 this season so far, averaging 2.16 yellow cards per-game, while the boys from Brittany have accumulated an average of 1.58 bookings per-game across their opening 19 contests of the campaign.

What's more, Benoît Bastien has been handed the whistle for this match-up and that only adds to the appeal of backing bookings, with the French referee averaging 4.67 cards-per 90 minutes in Ligue 1 this term, awarding both teams a card in each of his nine outings to date.

With all things considered, coupled with the fact the aforementioned Bet Builder has banked in Rennes' last two league matches, the 4/5 (SkyBet) about each team to hit 3+ corners and each team to receive 10+ booking points looks like a nice angle of attack.
