Celtic have managed only two points from their first three games and could only muster a draw when they came up against Rennes, the first meeting ever between the sides, two weeks ago because of a comical own goal from defender Cha Du-Ri.
The Bhoys are desperate for three points to distract from their inconsistent start to the SPL season where they have tasted defeat three times on ten games already, leading to Lennon insisting his side must win every single remaining league fixture if they are to reclaim the Scottish title from Rangers, who they are already 12 points adrift of.
Rennes meanwhile have been inconsistent both at home and on the continent, claiming two wins from their last five games in all competitions. The French side will be pinning their hopes of victory on Arsenal transfer target Yann M’Vila to create the openings that will lead to victory, while forward Victor Hugo Montano will be charged with finding the net on his own as boss Frédéric Antonetti is likely to go defensive and try and catch Celtic cold on the counter attack.
Lennon meanwhile will likely opt for a two man attack with Anthony Stokes likely to get the nod alongside Gary Hooper.
With Celtic and Rennes languishing at the bottom of Group I both sides need to win in order to realistically keep their European dream alive while the group’s leaders, Udinese and Atletico Madrid go up against each other.
Lennon’s men will have to wary of a talented if inconsistent Rennes side that have the joint-best away record in Ligue 1 this season, claiming 12 points from seven games on the road so far.
