Rennes hosts Jablonec
Rennes hosts Jablonec in a match from Group K of the UEFA Europa League. Let’s have a look at this clash on French soil in our predictions football 1×2 for today.
Rennes did a pretty good campaign in Ligue 1 last season, which allowed the club to be part of the European competitions. It’s not easy to win European quota in a tough league like the French one, so doing this is a proof that Rennes are a team which have some strong values.
The way Rennes started the new season in the Ligue 1 shows a little bit of unconsistency. The team is currently 9th in the league standings with 7 points and a record of two wins, one draw and two defeats. In their last game they suffered a 1-2 defeat during the visit to Nice.
Jablonec also didn’t start the new season in the Czech Liga in the most impressive way possible. They are currently 8th in the league standings with 10 points and a record of three wins, one draw and four defeats. Jablonec was enjoying a run of three consecutive wins in the league, but in their last two games they suffered two consecutive losses against Opava and Mlada Boleslav. This is showing us that Jablonec are not in their best shape, just before the start of the Europa League group stage.
These are our predictions football 1×2 for today for the Europa League clash between Rennes and Jablonec. It’s obvious that Rennes are the favourite here, being the team from a much better league. We can say that both teams had some unconvincing start of the season in their domestic leagues, but in many ways the matches in Europe are a little bit different. Let’s see what these two teams could offer us on Thursday night.
