The other match in Group K is a straight shoot-out between third placed Rennes and second placed Astana with the hosts looking to overhaul their visitors and claim a place in the knockout rounds as the betting tips continue on Thursday night.

Rennes

Rennes sit in third spot in Group K with 6 points accrued so far thanks to home and away wins over Czech Republic side, Jablonec. However, three defeats during the middle of the campaign to Astana away from home along with home and away defeats to Dynamo Kiev mean they’re now depending on a home win over Astana here to progress.

At their Roazhon Park, Rennes have recorded a 2-1 win over Jablonec but also lost by the same scoreline to Dynamo Kiev, so honours have been even at home this campaign to date. The bigger picture shows us that Rennes have suffered just one defeat in their last 11 home matches in the Europa League.

3 out of their 5 matches in this campaign have seen both teams score.

Astana

Astana head into this crucial match day 6 showdown with Rennes seemingly in the driving seat as they just need to avoid defeat in France on Thursday night to progress through to the knockout rounds of the Europa League.

The visitors hold a valuable two point cushion ahead of Rennes thanks to the good start they made during these group matches; the visitors took a point off Dynamo Kiev with a 2-2 draw away from home which was followed by home wins over Rennes and Jablonec either side of a 1-1 draw away at Jablonec.

Astana’s results away from home have also improved as the Kazakhstan club have suffered just one defeat in their last six matches on their travels.

They’ve also seen 3 of their 5 matches ending with both teams scoring.

Rennes v Astana – Betting Tips Verdict

Both teams possess dangerous attacking personnel – Rennes have Sarr (5 goals) and Ben Arfa (4 goals) while Astana have the likes of midfielder Tomasov (14 goals) along with forward Murtazayev (8 goals). We could see both teams scoring here at good odds.
