Stade de Reims vs Arsenal London | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
The French team quietly reached the eight finals of this edition of the Europa League. They weren’t too noticeable, and did their part of the job correctly, which is why they aim the next round, despite the opponent on the other side. Arsenal needs to take this competition seriously, because they might be out of the top four in the English Premiership, meaning that their only ticket to the Champions League is the trophy here. Arsenal might have a shot at it, but the motivation and the approach to every game need to be a lot different than against BATE Borisov in Belarus.
Home team is coming into this match fresh as they had their last game 8 days before the upcoming one. On the other side, Arsenal had a huge battle at Wembley where they left two points. We deliberately say “left,” because of Aubameyang’s miss from a penalty. Gunners didn’t deserve to go home without a win, especially after a massive mistake of the linesman, who didn’t saw the offside position which preceded Soktratis’ foul on Kane.
Stade de Reims
Rennais defeated Orleans in their last competitive match. The game was a Coupe de France match, and the hosts were routine, winning by 2:0. Now, most of the people don’t know that the French side has 12 straight games at their home without a loss. Seven of those events finished with them keeping clean sheets. Ten wins and only two draws, Rennais’ Roazhon Park is one of the most hostile stadiums in the whole of France. The fans are giving wings to their players in the crucial moments, which we witnessed several times this season.
We still don’t know the state of Arsenal’s players after the North London Derby. The referee made an obvious mistake which influenced the game and damaged the guests from the Emirates. But even after all of that, the Gunners had a chance to seal the win, yet their best striker took a horrible penalty. This was the first draw after three straight wins Arsenal recorded, in which they allowed only one and scored 10 goals. But when analyzing the road clashes, the situation is not that great. The Gunners have just two victories in the past ten games, three draws, and five losses. During that span, seven encounters saw both teams to score.
Latest Team News
Everything is pretty much the same with the French team, because all the players who weren’t in the combination for the rematch against Betis, won’t be in the protocol on Thursday.

This will be their first meeting in official matches.
Odds and Predictions
Arsenal is a favorite here. A win of the hosts will double your stake. Rennais triumph will multiply it four times, while a draw is 3.20.
Stade de Reims vs Arsenal London | Top Betting Tip: Draw (1-1)
We simply can’t back up the Gunners in this one. They are too bad on the road, and a game in Belarus is still stuck somewhere in our head. Rennais is much more severe opponent than BATE, and those 12 in a row without a loss are reminding us that this isn’t going to be just another trip across La Manche for the English club. Because of that, a draw is our choice, and we are strongly recommending for you to consider it. As for the goals, there is one interesting trend for hosts’ games in the last month. Four of five at their stadium saw a moderate efficiency, two or three goals. Because of the importance of the game we too think that this event won’t see some fireworks of scores. However, both sides score and concede, and there are nice prospects of seeing the same here. To conclude the analysis, Stade Reannais – Arsenal, 1:1.
