Rosenborg vs Rennes
UEFA Europa Conference League
Date: Thursday, 26 August 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Lerkendal Stadion.
Rennes are from one of the top-five leagues in Europe, and they had also recorded a win to nil in the first leg. Meanwhile, Rosenborg are from the Norwegian top flight, which is placed outside the top-20 leagues in the continent. Likely, expect a win for the former.
Rennes had secured a sixth-place finish the last season in the French top flight, and they had managed to score a total of 52 goals in the process. They had also shown incredible competitive spirit in holding on to the final European spot as well.
In the meantime, Rosenborg had finished fourth in the Eliteserien, and had conceded goals at a rate of more than one per fixture. And since they had lost the first leg, they have to now overcome a two-goal deficit, against a team much better than them.
By all means, expect Rennes to make it to the Conference League with another victory.

- Rennes recorded a 2-0 win at home in the sole meeting between the two teams.
Rosenborg vs Rennes Prediction
Rennes are on a five-game unbeaten run, and three of these were wins. Note that they had conceded a total of just two goals during this stretch, while keeping three clean sheets. Moreover, they were also invincible in 15 of their last 19 overall fixtures.
On the other hand, their counterparts might be a top-rated team in the Norwegian top flight, but they are by no means ready top take on a team from any of the top-five leagues, let alone one of the best amongst them.
Since Rosenborg have to score two goals in ninety minutes to have any short of progressing, they will have to concentrate more on offense, and this opens up more channels for Rennes to score.
Likely, expect another win for the French team this Thursday.
