Arsenal vs Stade Rennais | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
After a horrific first game in which they got blown away, the Gunners have nothing to wait for, and they need to attack right from the start. They have a solid momentum after defeating United, which they need to use. Now, while we talk about the positive vibes, be sure that Rennais has at least an equal amount of the same like Arsenal does because the French team rarely experiences losses this year.
Match Preview Arsenal vs Stade Rennais
Arsenal defeated Manchester United this Sunday with 2:0, and saved their chances to reach the Champions League. This is a beyond question boost for Unia Emery’s team, who was almost written off after last weeks draw against Tottenham. On the other side, Rennais was confident with Caen, easily defeating their rivals in the French La Liga. The players and the coaches are saying that they aren’t coming to London to make any threats, but that they are not going to be scared either.
Everything ended well for the Gunners in this Premiership round, and because of that, they occupy place No.4 with one point fewer than the Spurs. Chelsea, United, and Tottenham all couldn’t win, setting up the perfect chance for Arsenal to use that. After two matches without a victory, the Gunners triumphed, and that happened against one of their biggest rivals Manchester United, 2:0. Emery’s team inflicted them the first loss since Solskjaer sat on the bench of the Red Devils. It was the fourth match in last five at Emirates, in which the fans saw a moderate efficiency, 2 or 3 goals.
Form Stade Rennais
We did indicate that the French team is not an easy opponent and that the chances of seeing Arsenal lose overseas are pretty significant. Just find our preview of that game and see it for yourself. Now, Rennais hasn’t felt the taste of defeat in five straight, but that is mostly because they played the last four games at home. When examining the road games, things are a bit different. The French side has three losses and two victories over the recent five road trips, keeping the clean sheets only once. There isn’t any pattern when it comes to scoring, and the efficiency of the games varied from contest to contest. The unique thing is that they allowed two goals at least when losing.

Expert Betting Tip
The question is, can the guests endure the enormous pressure of the Gunners? Rennais is one good physical team, who can easily play two games if necessary. But what is their weakness from time to time is the undiscipline in tactical assignments. Arsenal will start attacking right from the start, and that is beyond the question for sure. Having in mind that they play at home, and that they know how to catch up the lead, as they did that in the past, we are recommending to bet on their victory, and not the plain win, but with a handicap, -1.5 goals. About the efficiency, over 2.5 scores should be seen at Emirates on Thursday night. After all, the Gunners are chasing the deficit, that has to bring many goals. Our final word, Arsenal vs Stade Rennais, 3-0.
