Lazio vs Rennes
Date: Thursday, 3 October 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).
Lazio will be hosting Rennes in their next match in the Europa League. The host lost the opening match on a trip on the road to CFR Cluj. The Eagles have placed themselves in the sixth spot in the Italian Seria A. They have encountered three wins and two losses from their six appearances in the Italian league.
Rennes has defeated the French Champions PSG in a recent encounter in French Ligue 1 at their home. Even though they are strong at home, they do show mixed results in their away ties. The Rennais had the opening match in Europa League tied with Celtic.
Both teams are on a good roll in their respective leagues, but the home team has more prominent hold in their own turf. So the match will test whether the visitors can outwit their foes.

Lazio vs Rennes Prediction
The Eagles have lost only three of their past seven encounters in major leagues, while Rennes has been winless for a six-game streak in their respective competitions. Also, Lazio has been strong at home with winning the last two and staying unbeaten in the last four home ties. Meanwhile, Rennes has won two out of the previous six away fixtures in their schedule.
Besides that, the teams have slotted in a good number of goals in their matches. The traveling side has scored in four of the last six away ties, while the host has seen the back of the net in all the prior six home encounters. As such, the match will probably be in favor of the home team and see goals at both ends of the field.
