Rennes Preview – Can Rennes bank on home advantage?

A home win in this opener of the Europa Conference League should set Rennes up well enough.

They were involved in the Play Off Round and made fairly comfortable progress past Rosenborg.

Rennes claimed a 5-1 aggregate win in that tie.

Two of the three victories that Rennes have taken this season came from those matches against Rosenborg.

Overall, across all competitions this season, Rennes are only W3 D2 L2.

They have suffered back to back league defeats since a 3-1 win at Rosenborg in this competition.

Those latest defeats were 2-0 losses as well.

It’s not as if the French outfit have been particularly potent in front of goal this season.

Only in two of their seven matches in all competitions have they scored more than one goal in a fixture.

In the match outright in football betting for Thursday’s match, Rennes are a quote of 13/8* (odds recorded 18:57 GMT, 13th September 2021)

Our betting prediction:

* (odds recorded 18:57 GMT, 13th September 2021)


Rennes are in this inaugural season of UEFA’s new third-tier competition after a 6th place finish in last season’s Ligue 1.

They missed out on the UEFA Europa League by two points.

Considering that last season they were competing in the Champions League, this is quite a drop for them.

In last season’s Champions League Group Stage, Rennes took one point from their six matches.

They failed to score in half of those fixtures.

Rennes don’t appear to be a massive threat but it’s going to boil down to how seriously both teams take this competition.


Tottenham Preview – Can Spurs get the road win?

Tottenham have a big Premier League match against Chelsea coming up on the weekend.

There’s a likelihood that they aren’t going to throw the kitchen sink at this fixture.

In the Play Off Round, Spurs lost 1-0 at Pacos Ferreira in the first leg of their qualification tie.

But with a stronger team put out in the second leg at home, Spurs earned a 3-0 home success.

It’s been a reasonable start to life under Nuno Espirito Santo for Tottenham.

They are W4 L2 in all competitions.

Tottenham were hammered 3-0 at Crystal Palace in league action on the weekend.

Japhet Tanganga was sent off in the 58th minute and Spurs went on to concede all goals in the final fifteen minutes (one was a penalty).

So that was probably just a bad day at the office, with ill-discipline by Tanganga at the root of it.

Tottenham are 29/20 to win in France on Thursday night* (odds recorded 18:57 GMT, 13th September 2021).

Their campaign ended in a shock 3-2 aggregate loss against Dinamo Zagreb.

Spurs did return a W10 D1 L2 record in Europe last season.

This isn’t a match that is out of reach for them and victory would see them well on course for an easy group win.
