Arsenal vs Rennes Betting Preview – 14/03/2019

Arsenal vs Rennes

Arsenal return to the Emirates Stadium this Thursday to face Stade Rennes in last 16 of the Europa League. The first leg ended in disaster for the Gunners with them suffering a 3-1 defeat to the French side, but Unai Emery will be hoping they can overcome this with them returning to their home ground. Stade Rennes are in a good position to qualify for the quarter-finals, but they will need to be at the top of their game in London to hold onto their lead. The Gunners are in good shape to overcome the two-goal deficit with them beating Manchester United 2-0 in their previous league fixture.

With the Premier League title out of sight for Arsenal this season and since the Europa League is the only other competition they remain in, Unai Emery will be desperate to keep their campaign alive. The Gunners sit in fourth place in the Premier League table after beating Manchester United 2-0 and this victory moved them within one point of Tottenham Hotspur who sit in third. Only one of Arsenal’s last five games have ended in a loss which was in the first meeting with Rennes and three of those fixtures have been wins. SkyBet has the hosts to win in this fixture priced at 3/10 and they have odds of 10/11 for them to qualify.

The Gunners away form has caused them problems this season, but they have been much stronger whilst playing at home. Arsenal have won their last five home games on the bounce and four of those fixtures have seen them win by a margin of two goals or more. Arsenal have been much stronger defensively whilst playing at home also and have kept three clean sheets in their last five home games. SkyBet has them to keep another clean sheet priced at 1/1. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sits on 20 goals this season after scoring against Manchester United and the forward can be backed to score with Betway at a price of 8/13.

Stade Rennes will be hoping for more of the same this Thursday after making light work of their Premier League opposition. The French side finds themselves in eighth place in Ligue One as they go into matchday 28. Rennes arrive in good form for this fixture with their last defeat coming six games ago. Since then, Rennes have secured four wins and one draw, with their most recent game ending in a 3-1 win over Caen. SkyBet has Rennes to win priced at 17/2.

Stade Rennes did incredibly well in the first meeting to secure a 3-1 win but will be worried about their away form ahead of this fixture as they have suffered three defeats in their last five away games. The last meeting between the sides saw both sides score and Bet365 have both teams to score again priced at 10/11. Ismaila Sarr is his sides top goalscorer this season and bagged a goal against Arsenal in the first meeting. Betway has Sarr to score anytime priced at 9/2.
