Tottenham to Win
We're backing an away win for Tottenham as they have the better and more experienced of the two sides in European competition. Spurs have also started the Premier League season very brightly, picking up three wins from their opening four matches, while Rennes sit 11th in the Ligue 1 table with 5pts from their opening five fixtures.
Under 2.5 Goals
As we have seen with Tottenham during the early stages of the new season, they don't often score or concede a lot of goals. Each of Spurs' three wins in the Premier League this season have been via a 1-0 scoreline and five of Rennes' last six outings have produced under 2.5 goals, so you can see why we're predicting a low-scoring 90-minutes this Thursday.
1-0 to Tottenham
Each of Tottenham's three wins in the Premier League so far this season have been secured via a 1-0 scoreline and we're backing the Londoners to score once and kept a clean sheet against Rennes. The hosts have failed to score in their last two matches and haven't kept a clean sheet in any of their last four fixtures.
Key stats and markets for Rennes vs Tottenham
Tottenham are one of the favourites to win the first-ever Europa Conference League
Rennes suffered a 2-0 defeat in their own backyard at the hands of Reims at the weekend and have now lost their last two matches. The French side sit 11th in Ligue 1 and have made a mundane start to the new season but did manage to beat Rosenborg 5-1 on aggregate in the final qualifying round for the Conference League.
Tottenham's 100% record in the Premier League came to a premature end at Selhurst Park on Saturday. Spurs went down to 10-men and lost the game 3-0 in what was a really bad day at the office for Nuno's men. The visitors will be looking for a response from their players in France and Rennes can expect a much more focussed and disciplined Tottenham on Thursday.
Rennes: the home side look set to be without Birger Meling, Jeremy Doku and Jeremy Gelin due to injury, while Dogan Alemdar has been self-isolating and is expected to miss Thursday's game.
Tottenham: Romero and Lo Celso could return to the squad after a period of self-isolation but Sanchez, Bergwijn, Son and Dier could all miss the game through injury.
