Rennes vs Astana Prediction
Both these teams have realistic chances for progression to the next stage of the competition. They hold the second and third spots in the table. Neither side will play defensive football as their objective would be lost without goals.
Astana won the last match against Rennes with a 2-0 scoreline. It is very much likely that they will score against Rennes in this match also. The hosts too will get on the scorecard, considering the backing of the home crowd and their desperation for something out of this match.
This desperation, owing to the match is the last one in the group stage, can also backfire, and the opponents could get on the scoresheet taking advantage of the fact.
