Rennes 17/10 to beat Real Betis in Thursday’s Europa League tie

Competition: Europa League

Market: Rennes win

Odds: 17/10 @ Bet 365

Looking to carry on their impressive run of form and pick up an early advantage in their Round of 32 first leg, Rennes will welcome La Liga outfit Real Betis to Roazhon Park on Thursday night.

Starting with Julien Stéphan’s Rennes side, putting in another impressive showing in their 3-0 win over Saint Etienne, the hosts are enjoying quite the run of form in 2019. Now on a three-match winning run, including knocking Lille out of the Coupe de France, it will be their form at Roazhon Park most impressing Stéphan. With a 4-1 loss to PSG their only defeat since the middle of January, the White and Blacks are enjoying a nine-match unbeaten run on home soil. Remarkably winning eight of those contests, Rennes should be confident of extending that tally on Thursday.

As for the visitors, while Rennes might be enjoying an eye-catching resurge in the New Year, the same can not be said for Real Betis. Coming off the back of a 3-0 loss away at Leganes over the weekend, Los Verdiblancos have won just one of their last six matches in 90 minutes. Along with recording just one clean sheet in their last nine contests across all competitions, it will be their form on the road giving Quique Setién the biggest headache. Failing to find the net in their last two matches away from the Estadio Benito Villamarín, the La Liga side have picked up just one victory on the road since the middle of November.
