Arsenal Prediction

Arsenal trail Rennes by 3-1 after last week’s 1st leg defeat at Roazhon Park in a scoreline which raised more than just a few eyebrows, and further confirmed Rennes’ ability to upset the big teams and play the part of spoilers to great effect.

However, after their 2-0 home win over Manchester United which ended manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s unbeaten run since taking over the reins at Old Trafford, Arsenal will be in confident mood in chasing down this two-goal deficit, with the extra assistance of scoring what could prove to be an all-important away goal in the 1st leg.

Arsenal have lost just one of their last six matches in all competitions which was the result against Thursday night’s opponents but a 3-0 home win over BATE in the previous round which clinched Arsenal’s place in this round of 16 was a particular highlight along with Premier League wins over Southampton, Bournemouth and of course, Manchester United.

6 of Arsenal’s last 9 home ties in the Europa League have produced over 2.5 goals.


Key-Facts – Arsenal v Rennes

  • Arsenal have lost just 1 of their 11 home ties in the Europa League
  • 6 of Arsenal’s last 9 home ties in the Europa League have produced over 2.5 goals
  • 9 of Rennes’ last 13 away ties in the Europa League have resulted in over 2.5 goals


Rennes Prediction

Onto Rennes, and they sit in the driving seat ahead of this 2nd leg in London at the Emirates Stadium after an impressive display at their Roazhon Park which has seen the visitors win their last three matches on the trot in all competitions.

A 2-0 Coupe de France win over Orleans, the 3-1 win over Arsenal in the 1st leg of this tie and a 3-1 win over Caen in Ligue 1 have been handy returns for Rennes who have already shown they’re more than capable of springing a surprise as well as scoring goals.

However, past history away from home in the Europa League hasn’t always looked so rosy as the French club have lost 9 of their last 13 away ties in this competition, while 9 of these last 13 away matches have also seen over 2.5 goals scored as well.

If nothing else, Rennes appear to be an entertaining outfit, and although they have a lead to hold onto against Arsenal, they’ll also have their chances to score in this 2nd leg as The Gunners have no option but to attack here.

Betting Tips Verdict

Arsenal will be looking to replicate their previous home leg win over BATE when they face Rennes here, but the French outfit could make things very interesting in this clash.
