Europa League Betting Prediction Betis Sevilla vs Rennes
What makes this game so unique is that on the one hand Stade Rennes is the only remaining French team in the Europa League. According to this, the Brittany Club wants to uphold the French flag. On the other hand, as already indicated, it was the top scoring duel of all first leg matches. Chances are that we will have a similar spectacle on Thursday. One reason is that Rennes is under pressure. An encounter in which a team has to run and meet a strong team usually promises a lot of action. In addition, the sting could still sit deep at Rennes. If you give away a 2-0 lead and a 3-1 lead, you’re more likely to face a riot in the second leg.
Betis Sevilla are a home team with tremendous strength. While they were able to get just eleven points out of eleven games in La Liga away from home and thus ranked 14th in this ranking, things are looking very different at home. 22 points sprang from 13 games. Thus, Betis is the seventh best home team in the league. Also in the Europa League could “Béticos” in three home games enter seven points and allowed only one goal conceded! Overall, the Setién-Elf finished the group stage in first place and could call in addition to his home strength in addition to the best defensive her own (only two goals in six games)!
In La Liga, the men of Coach Quique Setién are well on the way to qualify again for the Europa League. Currently, they rank eighth in the table. The distance to sixth place is only three meters. All the more annoying is that Betis missed it on the weekend to displace the direct competitor Deportivo Alaves from that place. Despite a towering superiority, even in the local Benito Villamarin is enough for just one counter.
What we at Betis Sevilla vs Rennes is very confirmed in our tip, is a very special statistics. The Andalusians have just been able to turn over their high percentage of possession in the last two games (including in the first leg in Brittany). In Rennes a total of 15 goal shots were generated from 73% possession of the ball, ten of them went straight to the goal! On the other hand, they allowed only five shots on goal. The fact that this led to three goals underscored Rennes’ game luck. Even in the last test against Alaves were scored from 66% possession of the ball whole 19 shots. Only three were admitted. Again the match ended with a draw. Repeated shows the Spielpech, which presses us for the encounter between Betis Sevilla and Rennes in our prediction. The Maestro Setién has to renounce injury due only to Christian Herrera Tello and Junior Firpo and has in this point his coach colleagues against certainly a personal advantage.

Robles – Mandi, Garcia, Sidnei – Joaquin, Canales, Carvalho, Guardado, Junior – Lo Celso – Loren

Although a 3-3 draw sounds sobering after a 2-0 and then 3-1 lead, Stade Rennes may be lucky not to lose the first leg. Anyone who has seen the game or, at least in hindsight, the statistics strives, quickly sees that Betis was clearly the better team. Almost 70% possession of the ball, unbelievably more scoring chances and playful superiority speak a clear language. Somewhat surprising, as the capital of Brittany was until recently still in an outstanding form. Out of five games, four were won across all competitions. In the meantime, she washed it up to eighth place. Rank 4 was only a meter away, even the Champions League seats were within reach. All the more inexplicable was the performance slump against Betis therefore. Also in the last duel in Ligue 1 they presented themselves in no good shape. Against Stade Reims was deservedly lost 0-2. While much seems to be going according to plan at Roazhon Park, the away weakness at Betis underpins Sevilla vs Rennes our tip towards the hosts. In 13 away games only 15 counters were retracted (in comparison: at home those 21). Even more frightening is a look at the defensive. In the distance, only two teams from Ligue 1 conceded even more goals! Almost two goals on average, the club from Brittany per away game must accept.
All eyes will be on Hatem Ben Arfa. With his seven points scorer so far, he is the most important player in the team of coach Julien Stephan. Overall, the assists and goals of the French secured his club six points so far, which would not have existed without his presence. Also against Betis he stood his man, as he took over the responsibility and the penalty for the interim 3: 1 turned. In addition to the many injured (Siliki, Johansson, Baal, Guitane, Danze, Siebatcheu) Rennes must now also do without the yellow -blocked Benjamin Andre.
Expected formation of Rennes:
Koubek – Zeffane, Mexer, Da Silva, Traore – Niang, Grenier, Bourigeaud, Hunou – Ben Arfa, Sarr
