Rennes vs Leicester
UEFA Europa Conference League
Date: Thursday, 17 March 2022
Kick-off at 17:45 UK/ 18:45 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park.

Leicester registered a confidence-boosting 2-0 win at home in the first leg, which gives them a definite edge in this return fixture.

However, Rennes are in spectacular form, especially so at home. They are determined to make a comeback, and it goes without saying that sparks are about to fly at the Roazhon Park.

Rennes have to make a comeback from two goals down, and they will have no option but to go after goals right from the get-go.

All of these points to a high-scoring thriller this Thursday between the two.

They are also on a winning streak at home in the past five appearances, and they had slotted in a total of 14 goals from their previous four matches here.

On the other hand, Leicester had won four of their former five fixtures, and their sole loss during this stretch had come against the in-form Arsenal.
