Celtic Prediction – Can Celtic make it 9 on the trot?

The Group E leaders, Celtic, will be aiming to make it make 9 wins on the trot at Celtic Park on Thursday night when they entertain French Ligue 1 outfit, Rennes, who currently sit bottom of the group with just 1 point after the first 4 matches of the group phase.

Celtic have enjoyed a successful campaign so far in the Europa League as they hold a 1-point lead ahead of 2nd placed CFR Cluj and as The Hoops have 10 points to their name and have a 7-point advantage over 3rd placed Lazio, the Scots have already qualified for the knockout rounds of the competition.

A 1-1 draw away from home at tonight’s opponents, Rennes, saw Celtic off to an okay start but Neil Lennon’s side quickly found their feet and recorded 3 wins on the trot over CFR Cluj 2-0 at home before back-to-back wins against Italian side, Lazio, winning 2-1 at home and a 2-1 win in Rome.

Although they’ve already qualified for the next phase, Lennon will be keen for his side not to get complacent and will be demanding another result from his players at Celtic Park on Thursday night.

Rennes Prediction – Can Rennes record first win?

The French visitors have still yet to record a win during their Europa League group campaign as they sit bottom of Group E with just 1 point after the first 4 matches, thanks to a Matchday 1 draw with tonight’s opponents, Celtic.

Rennes then subsequently lost their next 3 group matches on the trot with defeats to Lazio 2-1 away from home and then back-to-back defeats (home and away) to CFR Cluj, to leave the French Ligue 1 side bottom of the pile and no hope of achieving a top two finish as they trail 2nd placed CFR Cluj by 8 points with just 2 group matches remaining.

It all seems a far cry from when they inflicted a 3-1 home win over Premier League side Arsenal in last season’s Europa League back in March, but following that victory, Rennes have now lost 4 of their subsequent 5 matches in this competition.

Switch to results away from home and the story gets even bleaker for Rennes as the French club have lost 8 of their last 10 away ties in the Europa League and they face a very tough assignment in Glasgow on Thursday night.


Key-Facts – Celtic vs Rennes

  • Celtic have won their last 8 matches in all competitions on the trot
  • Celtic have won the last 3 matches on the trot in Group E in the EL
  • Rennes have lost 8 of their last 10 away ties in the Europa League


Betting Tips Verdict

Celtic have momentum and confidence behind them and should easily account for Rennes at Celtic Park.
