Rennes vs Jablonec
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 20 September 2018
Kick-Off at 17:55 UK / 18:55 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park (Rennes).

Rennes are back to European football after six years and they’ll be looking for a fresh start on Thursday evening when Czech hopefuls Jablonec come to visit Roazhon Park. It’s been a rather underwhelming start to the new season for Les Rouges et Noirs who sit ninth after seven rounds in Ligue 1.

However, the head coach Sabri Lamouchi has plenty of reasons to be optimistic about this first round fixture. Apart from the obvious gulf in quality between French and Czech football, his men have done really well in front of the home crowd at the start of the new campaign.

Rennes clinched back-to-back clean sheet wins over Angers and Bordeaux at Roazhon Park. They come into this as massive favourites following Jablonec’s poor run of form in their latest pair of outings.

Rennes vs Jablonec: Head-to-head

The two likes did not have the opportunity to cross each other’s paths so far.

Rennes vs Jablonec: Prediction

Jablonec enjoyed a fine domestic run last season. They came third in the Czech Liga ladder and finished the cup competition runners-up. However, their form looks to have hit a huge stumbling block in the past couple of weeks.

The visitors head into this off the back of subsequent tough defeats to Opava and Mlada Boleslav. They shipped five goals without scoring a single along.

Given Rennes’ impressive form at home with two wins from two in a strong Ligue 1 competition, we just can’t imagine any other scenario but a convincing victory for Lamouchi and his troops on the occasion.

The home victory is a banker at 1.40, but we’ll try and grab the maximum value backing Les Rouges et Noirs to win by at least two goals difference at the odds of 2.35. You can also back the hosts to keep a clean sheet at the 1.83 odds knowing that Jablonec did not find the back of the net in last two games.

Rennes vs Jablonec: Bet Tips

• Rennes -1.5 handicap @ 2.35 (27/20)

• Rennes to keep a clean sheet @ 1.83 (5/6).
