Rennes vs Celtic Prediction & Match Preview

Rennes vs Celtic
Europa League
Date: Thursday, 19 September 2019
Kick-off at 17:55 UK / 18:55 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park (Rennes).

Rennes are currently without a win in their last two consecutive games in the Ligue 1, which has certainly come as a surprise considering that they started their campaign ever so well. The hosts took out the likes of Montpellier and PSG in their opening games, only for them to lose against Nice at home.

Their most recent clash on the road saw them play out a far from exciting stalemate against Brest and will be locking horns with the Scottish outfit on the back of that result.

Celtic have been putting nothing but their best foot forward in their clashes in the Premiership and are the only team at the moment to win five games out of five. The visitors pulled off an admirable win over both Rangers and Hamilton on the road in their past matchups and are showing no signs of slowing down either.

Furthermore, you can count on Celtic to be too hot to handle for the hosts as they will be making the trip to Rennes with a stellar five-match winning streak under their belt.

Rennes vs Celtic Prediction

Despite starting out strong, it needs saying that the home team have fallen out of their groove at the moment. The squad have found the back of the net just once in their last two clashes, which certainly indicates a decline in form as they were able to score six goals from their opening three games.

Furthermore, their foes for the week have not been shy in racking up the goal tally and have already added twelve goals to their tally from their last five clashes alone. Also, the visiting cavalry have not been at the losing end in any of their previous seven outings, four of which were across Europe.

However, Rennes did force Celtic to share the spoils with them when they last met here. Taking into account that they did manage to get the better of PSG in one of their recent fixtures on home soil too, there is a slight possibility that they will be able to hold the visitors to a draw at the most. So, a double chance is certainly the safest bet to back.

Additionally, the hosts have scored in each of their last five home games. So have Celtic, in their respective trips on the road. Considering that their previous head to head meeting here also saw both teams get their names on the scoresheet, expect goals down each end in this one by all means.
