Rennes are facing Arsenal
We are taking our attention to Stade Roazhon Park in Rennes, because the Ligue 1 side Rennes are facing Arsenal in a first match from the Europa League 1/8-finals. Let’s have a look in our vip soccer predictions today for this fixture.
During the 1/16-finals of the competition, Rennes had a tough job against a club from another one of the top leagues – Real Betis. Once again the French side was a host in the first game, which ended with a 3-3 draw. Of course, this made the Spanish team a favourite for the second leg, because of these three goals scored on away ground.
But everything went wrong for Real Betis in the second leg at the Estadio Benito Villamarin in Sevilla. The match ended with a 3-1 win for Rennes, who dominated the game and won it with goals from Rami Bensebaini, Adrien Hunou and Mbaye Niang. The Argentine midfielder Giovani Lo Celso scored Betis’ only goal in the game, but it was far from enough for Quique Setien’s team to progress.
On the other hand Arsenal had a surprisingly rocky experience against BATE Borisov in the previous round. Despite of being a total favourite, Unai Emery’s team shockingly lost the first leg in Belarus. The Gunners fixed their mistake in the second leg, though, winning with 3-0 at the Emirates. Shkodran Mustafi and Sokratis scored for Arsenal, while BATE’s Zakhar Volkov scored himself an own goal.
Arsenal are aware that Europa League could be their key to a Champions League participation for next season. We believe that they will try to win this competition.
These are our vip soccer predictions today for the Europa League clash between Rennes and Arsenal on Thursday night. We wish you a good luck with this one.
